I bought my 01' Ford in 04'. But within 20 thousand miles I had to put a brand new a/c in it. This vehicle loves to drink gas. The brakes are lousy. I have a 95' base model S-10 and the brakes are better on that truck. Its acceleration is like telling a donkey to "mush!". I wish I would have bought a Corolla because they are more reliable, better on gas and a better sound system. The sound system seriously lacks. I'm 22 and I feel like I'm a 38 year old with three kids driving that car. Ford needs to focus on making their vehicles better. I wouldn't recommend a Taurus to my worst enemy. Did I mention it was boring?
