Much better than earlier models
By stealthfd on
2000 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan
We have over 100k on this wagon. Great suburban hauler,good for shopping and 2x80 lbs dogs. mileage is ok. brakes are poor, do an upgrade (baer or sho); rear springs too soft, esp. for a wagon. shocks/struts upgraded for better handling. minor front end work. no engine/trans. problems (vs. prior models) cheaper than European wagons. not many aftermarket goods. some torque steer. decent acceleration. tapered rear entry limits many big items that would have fit if square opening. front coil replaced at 30k but broke at 70k, puncture tire on freeway curve; almost hit the wall!
low cost, easy to repair anywhere good hauler with good mileage. style ahead of it's time.
brakes, shocks/struts. put on transmission cooler. seat heater. better power seat controls.
