Nice solid car
By Michael vanHaagen on
2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan
My dad gave me the Ford SES FFV with 70 thousand miles on it. I drove it from California to Texas. The car handles well on windy days and really likes to drive at freeway speed for hours at a time. Mileage on trip was about 30MPG. I also have a Toyota Corolla same year -- 2000. The Ford is more solid. However I am kind of scared to drive the Ford because of its reputation for problems. The car has had many recalls and some problems like fuel pump failures as seen by the repair history kept by my dad. The Toyota has none. I guess time will tell but so far I have not had any problems.
Fold down rear seat, nice style, solid feel, good road manners, back A/C vent.
Need cruise control and key switch lighted at night; also a CD player would be good. Four wheel disk brakes would also be a plus.
