1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan

Review

By the time the car was five years old with 63k miles, I had had the transmission rebuilt, did the brakes twice myself, replaced several suspension components trying to fix dangerous at the limit handling characteristics, installed several new electrical items including power window motors and power seat switches, and several mechanics were chasing a check engine problem. All this and 22 mpg. So, I traded it this weekend for a '02 Subaru. It handles, shifts, and stops like a car should. No more Fords for me.

Best Features

Cheap transportation.

Worst Features

Improve total engineering and quality picture. A five year old car with 63k on it should not require a transmission rebuild, and two brake jobs. Emergency handling is dangerous!
