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

Review

I bought this car used at 30,000 miles. Like so many of the Tauruses, the front rotors were trashed and the rear brake components were about ready to go and all needed to be replaced. Have your brakes inspected by a competent shop! The car ran great until the dealer did a tune up. After that point the engine knocked terribly, except with premium fuel and they said there was nothing they could do. On the freeway, it was great, about 28mpg. When I moved to the city it got between 12-16mpg which was not acceptable. Other than that, it never broke down and had LOTS of room.

Best Features

Comfortable for freeway cruising. Lots of cargo room. I liked the center console in it.

Worst Features

Was like lugging a big boat around in the city. Terrible turning radius and cumbersome to drive. Ford, can't you make decent brakes?
