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


Review

I bought this car as my first car about 3 and a half years ago. As soon as I finished paying it off, it started having one major problem after another. I liked driving the car while it worked, but all too often it didn't. I have only put ~16k miles on it since January '07 and I've had 3 major breakdowns with it. Kept regular maintenance on it, the car was just a dud. I wouldn't even recommend this car to my enemies, I'm not that cruel.


Best Features

The car provided a comfortable ride from point A to point B when it worked.


Worst Features

Take a page from Toyota or Honda. Specifically, the page titled "Reliability."

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


Review

This was my first car I got her in late 2000 it had 200 miles on it. Currently it has over 300k. I will not ever sell this I have everything she came with almost 10 yrs ago when shes clean she looks just as sweet as the day I got her. With her dark blue flawless paint job and her stock aluminum rims I have people ask if its for sale and how many miles are on her I tell them and watch there jaws drop shes never been in the shop ever I will die with her in my possession Ford knows how to make them blue oval fan for life!


Best Features

Handling, appearance, body style, stock rims, dark blue paint, room, adjustable pedals, safety features, gear shift in center console not on steering column, price. 300k miles without anything under the hood being replaced or worked on


Worst Features

something a little bigger than a 3.0
