I was very pleased with my 99 Taurus
until we noticed a nice rattle about a
month ago. Have discovered it to be one
of the two catalytic converters is
breaking apart. This is outrageously
priced to fix. The part is expensive,
plus...the mounting bolts are almost
unreachable for some mechanics--one
exhaust shop won't even work on it
because of the mounting. I bought the
extended warranty; however, it does not
cover this. WHEW! That's a load off
I do like the handling of the car, gas
mileage,the power seat and the
comfort. It is roomy, even for growing
children! The trunk is nice size.
I do not like the "tilt-out" console!
