2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

Mandatory to have Brembo brake rotors installed on any Taurus (no special brake pads needed) to overcome the rather poor stopping performance with standard rotors. Like a Volvo, it is comfortable, great crash test scores, quiet. More reliable and much less expensive to work on than Volvo. Large trunk. Best to get a Taurus when it is 4 years or older due to depreciation. Cheap to insure and 2000 and newer models have addressed the various problems & weird styling of late 90s models. Buy it!


Best Features

Large comfortable seats with lots of shoulder room, any mechanic can work on them, great crash test scores, classy styling.


Worst Features

Fit and finish, thin paint.

2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this car from my father this last year and I love it. It has been taken care of and drives and looks just like it did when it was new. If you are looking for the most bang for your buck the Taurus is the right car for you.


Best Features

I like the lines, color, wheels, and overall engine performance. The sort of performance my 24 valve delivers is awesome!


Worst Features

Ford is only making the Taurus in '06 for rental car & fleet service companies. I wish the image was a little better so they could keep selling them.

2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

The ride and handling for the price was much much more than I had anticipated. The mileage is over 30 on the highway and about 22 in the city with the air conditioning going most of the time in Florida. The mileage is actually better now at 105,000 miles than it was at 20,000 miles. The room inside is very generous. The look and paint is excellent even 6 years later. The depreciation is average for an American car so for the money a used 2000 Taurus is a good buy in my mind. The problems over the years were less than average for an American car also.


Best Features

The ride and the handling is very good for an American car. Visibility and generous interior. Paint is excellent.


Worst Features

Better transmission would be nice and would have gotten better scores from me.

Review

This is a powerful car. Fun to drive. Took it from Wisconsin to Arizona with no problems. But ... this thing is junk. I've had to put so much money into this thing. Brakes, fuel injectors, air conditioning, tie rods, steering column, had it in for transmissions problems 5 TIMES, engine noise (dealer cant find the problem). As soon as I hit 75,000 miles, WHEN THE WARRANTY WAS UP, the front end started making noise. Oh also, the steering makes a loud squeaking noise. Typical Ford product. Nice car, if you have the money for regular maintenance. By the way i only have 75,000 miles on it. My Chevy has 182,000 miles with no major problems.


Best Features

Love the power.


Worst Features

Make it so it can actually last!

2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

This is by far the BEST used car that I ever purchased. The ride is smooth and the car is mechanically sound. Gas mileage is as high as 28 highway but on average is in the area of 26 mpg. Even around town the Taurus is good on gas. I am truly pleased with this car. Visibility is good and the truck space is large. Seating is comfortable and car seats fit in the back without difficulty. I would recommend the Ford Taurus to anyone who is looking for a reliable used vehicle.


Best Features

Tilt steering and anti lock brakes.


Worst Features

Acceleration from a stopped or slowed position such as coming out of a toll booth area is slow. I would expect a little quicker take off from a V6. Rear defrost button blends in too much with other dashboard controls. Rear seats should have anchors for car seats not just anchors on the back deck.
