2001 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


As a salesman in the typical salesman vehicle, it did its job. I finally turned it in 140,000 miles later. 3 sets of front brakes, tires, a water pump, and a battery. The original battery gave out after only a year. The front rotors warp easily and brakes heat up too fast in the mountains. The steering wheel squeaks. It was a sled for power and had the turning radius of a truck, but held the road on winding roads. If you want a slow car that looks fast and is reliable, buy one. The price should come down quickly as companies are starting to sell off their fleet vechicles.

Best Features

The outside styling. The trunk space. The cabin filter. The flip down armrest that converts into a seat.

Worst Features

Get rid of that anemic 3.0 liter engine on the SE and LX so nobody will get stuck with it! Use the SES engine on all models. Improve the front brake cooling or use 4 wheel disc.
