This is my second Taurus. The first
had trans problems (1990). I decided
to give it a try again. I purchased it
slightly used with a warranty. It was
loaded and a great size for my family.
There was a trans problem with the car
(55000 miles on it). The dealer fixed
it before I took it home. Since that
time this car had a lot of problems.
Serpentin belt cracked, needed new
hoses & plugs, brought it back 4 times
for the transmission, and then this
weekend I opened the trunk and found 3
inches of water in the spare tire
well. The whole trunk was wet. It had
(66000 miles on it). It also needed
I like the leather, heated mirrors,
size, and stereo system.
We traded it in for a Dodge Status ES.
At least with the Dodge I can figure
out what is wrong with it if there is
a problem. I was hoping Ford had
improved but not from what I can see.
Improve the cost to maintain the
vehicle buy making better
transmissions and parts.
