2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this car with 40300 miles on it,thinking i was getting a deal,but i was wrong,It now has 47785 miles on it and I had this car at the dealer about 5 times.The first were just small things but they cost enough to fix,but this last time took the cake,the front coil spring broke on the driver side,had i been going on the highway at 70mph i might not be here to tell about it,and the bad thing about it all is it was just inspected. I also have the sweek in the engine,dealer says its the rocker arms,and the brakes and rotors problem as well.Like i said, just another ford. Im not buying another ford again


Favorite Features

the interior,the engine has good take off power and the trunk space,and all the power features.


Suggested Improvements

2000 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car 4 years ago. I have had no problems with it other than replacing the battery and the inconvenience of having recall repairs done. Even those have been infrequent and insignificant. The car still has decent power and acceleration and is a good reliable car for a practical family man like me. She is paid off with, knock on wood, 100K miles to go !!


Favorite Features

MAch stereo, comfy ride, safety rating, decent fuel economy, reliability.


Suggested Improvements

A bit more power...Maybe a 240 or 260 HP engine. More quiet cabin...

Review

Run, don't walk away from buying a Taurus! Although this vehicle is fun to drive and looks sharp, it is prone to mechnical problems. This is the second Taurus sedan I have owned (and the last) and both had transmissionproblems at about 70,000 miles (under normal city driving conditions). Plus, they do not hold their value, so you;re going to get sunk on the financial end of the deal, too. Do yourself a favor...buy a Honda, a Toyota, but whatever you buy, DO NOT BUY A TAURUS!!!


Suggested Improvements

Improve the transmission so that it is more reliable.

Review

I purchased this vehicle with 13k miles. It was a good purchase price; possibly too good to be true. I have had problems with engine knocking since it was under warranty. The service manager said - we can't find anything it must just be bad fuel. To this day (80K miles later) it still knocks. The brakes squeal no matter what you do to them. Now the air conditioner has decided to work when it wants - I live in the south so this car will be traded in very soon. I really wanted this car but it is always something. It may be minor or major but it will keep you busy driving to a mechanic!


Favorite Features

I like the interior design. You can reach all controls without taking your eyes off the road to see what you are doing. The trunk is roomy and the fold down seats are great.


Suggested Improvements

RELIABILITY!! A car should not tear up every time you turn around. Make a good lasting car that doesn't need to go to the service dept on a regular basis.
