2000 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 2000 Taurus LX new. So far I am very pleased with it. I currently have 44,000 miles on it. I also have a 2001 Toyota Corolla, which is a good car on the city streets, but on the highway the Taurus is far superior.


Best Features

Ride quality is excellent on highway.


Worst Features

None- keep up the good work Ford.

2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan


Review

Average American car. Needs repair every 5-6 months. Starter, wiper motor, computer chip, brake vibration etc. Last 3 cars (Toyota & Subarus) went to 150K miles without this type of repair. Dealers can't seem to fix problems the first time but have got it right without extra charge. Cheaper than comparable Japanese make with same features but you make it up with repairs.


Best Features

Very comforable and roomy. Good seats. 30 mpg highway. Adequate power and handling.


Worst Features

If these were as reliable as a Camry it would be a great car.

2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had no problems with this car until April, 2005. Then I had an erratic undocumented airbag light error light. The motor, 24 valve DOHC is very fast, but does not get good gas mileage.


Best Features

Excellent acceleration when needed. Very comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Better view over left shoulder when looking back.

2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan


Review

The SE/SVG looks good, inside & out, but underneath there are some pretty expensive repairs waiting to creep up on you: just after buying this car, had to bring it back in (with dealer plates still attached!) because condensation from the heater/a/c unit leaked water all over the front passenger side floor. Dealer tried to charge $800+ to fix & then I had to bring it right back in to get them to fix it completely; chirping noise from front wheels was never correctly diagnosed - front rotors were shot, had to get private garage to fix, probably saved me $250+ than having incompetent Ford dealer try to fix it; steering wheel shakes around 60 mph & when braking from 60+ down to ~30; little things kill this car.


Best Features

Car looks sharp, reasonable gas mileage, trunk very spacious, like the fold-down rear seats, power driver's seat a nice feature.


Worst Features

Improve rotor quality, fix the steering wheel shaking & road noise (noticeable). Most importantly: Ford service MUST improve!

2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Wagon


Review

I have just turned 100,000 miles on my 2000 Taurus wagon with the Duratec engine. It has been very reliable. Only had it in the shop twice- battery died at about 25K (warranty) and fuel pump went at 90K. Outside of these, just routine maintenance. I drive a lot of highway miles so I get good mileage out of brakes and tires. Brake rotors are thin and need to be changed when pads are changed. All in all, I got good value for my buck.


Best Features

Mach sound system, Continental tires.


Worst Features

Better brake quality.
