Review of the 2001 Ford Taurus

  • A good car that suffers a bad rap. Problem is, in the hotly contested midsize family sedan segment, good isn't good enough.

    Excellent value for the money, high level of safety, available as a sedan or a wagon.

Ups and downs mostly downs

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this with 69,000 miles in 07. shortly after the purchase the oil lines went. Ran good for a while after that until recently at just over 106,000 miles. In a matter of a week the ac compressor went out then the battery died and the ac compressor going bad led to it locking up and popping the belt. Yea the car does have good throttle response but the gas mileage is horrible in the city and ive just run into so many problems with it and im scared to think of whats going to happen next. Also if you have the digital climate control and want to put in a new radio the dash kit is 170$. Also there is a bad seal in the trunk and trunk will always be wet especially around the spare tire.




Bland, poor audio, not comfortable

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

got this car from a family member, dont like it very much. It gets me from point a to b and thats fine. But the grey on grey is not very apealling to anyone I know and it makes me feel like im 60. All it needs for me to be happy is a new paint job and a different interior color




Terrible car

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought the car when it had 50,000 and the transmission went out at 63,000 I took it to the Ford dealership and they replaced it. 4000 dollars! Then at 130,000 the transmission went out again I hate this car it is a piece of junk I will never own Ford again the Taurus transmissions are very weak
