I Purchased my 1999 Taurus SE used with
8500 miles. I noticed a significant
differance in my fuel economy from my
93 Taurus that I traded in (Same 3.0
Engine) I Also noticed a excessive
amount of pinging, even with the higher
octane. (Dealer claims they all do it)
At 30000 the transmission failed.
(Thankfully while still under warranty)
Think I should buy the extended Warr ???
I like the ride. Split Bucket seats
with a console are also nice. Remote
keyless entry is also a great feature
Recall on Transmissions, and redesign
the engine for better fuel efficiancy
and less pinging
