A Swiss Watch From Ford
By Paul Blood on
2001 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This car has been the most reliable car my wife and I have ever owned. We bought it as a rental return with about 16,000(?) miles on it. It now has 116,000 miles on it and has not required a single repair. This Ford Taurus has required fewer repairs than the Honda Civic and Subaru Loyale that we owned in the past. The pushrod V-6 in the Taurus does not give hot rod performance, but hey you don't buy a Taurus to drag race it. It starts every time you twist the key, has a huge trunk, is comfortable, and gets decent gas mileage.
Reliability and the huge trunk
Nicer interior, better instrument layout. 30-40 more horsepower wouldn't hurt either. I think everything I could suggest would make it significantly more expensive and I bought the car because of its low price. I dont know if I would change anything.
