1999 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan


55,000 miles. Fast if you step on it. In need of brakes tires struts. Car feels beat up, but its a Ford over 50k miles I should expect that. Radio stinks, no in dash CD. More sound deadening would be nice. Front seats are way comfy. Engine sounds awesome. Slow off the line, above 3500 rpm it starts to kick it. Trunk could be larger. Paint, body still good. Harsh ride over bumps doesn't help. Steering and handling very good when tires were newer. Excellent touring car passing power awesome. Tranny kicks down slow. Be aware: design defect with v8 SHO's and camshaft design. Ford trying to hide it. Ford should fix this for ticked off owners. V8sho dot com.

Best Features

Front seats are waaayyyy comfy. Lots of room. Interior and exterior of SHO looks stylish, base Taurus is ugly. 32v surge of power when you step on it. Airy and open feeling cabin, great visibility.

Worst Features

New transmission and radio, better/quieter tires, ride over bumps can be less harsh, quieter inside, nicer plastic, fix camshaft design defects for owners. Better leather. Car starting to feel loose. Trunk and sunroof are small. More aggressive looking GEFX and spoiler.
