2001 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Car is ok to drive, dependable, reliable, good gas mileage, pretty decent ride for long trips. Regular maintenance and you will be fine (oil changes, transmission service every 50,000 miles or so). Brake rotors major problem, they warp very easily. Even with them NEW, stopping distance is mediocre, need 4-discs instead of drums in the back. Seats are slightly uncomfortable; I feel the need to adjust the seat constantly. Needs more HP and response to throttle. Also, if you intend to drive this car aggressively beware engine oil pressure jumps up very quickly. Only thing I have replaced is the serpentine belt 117k miles.
Nice looking exterior tip - add tints, sharpen the look even more.
Rotors need improvement. Seats should fold-down in the rear. Driver seat should be more comfortable. More HP.
