Reliable 24V Taurus
By hotrod on
2001 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I've owned 3 tauruses and am considering buying a new sho. I fix cars for a living and hate working on my own so I don't buy cars that have troubles. You name the car and I've worked on it. My 2001 Taurus 24v has been more reliable than many of my customers hondas and toyotas or nissans. With 167k on the clock and counting my wife drives 12 miles each way to work every day. We take the car on road trips of 500 miles or more at a time and have never had a failure of any thing and I don't drive the car like grandma either. Our last tuarus was a 90'sho 5 spd that had 270,000 miles on it when we sold it.
The 24V motor. comfortable seats. large trunk space, 30 mpg hwy, handling .
My thoughts exactly, the 24V engine makes this car a semi muscle car and sounds great, love shocking BMW and Audi owners with the sound and grunt! Mine is dark burgundy with tan leather and looks very smart and runs and handles beautifully and I collect sports cars, my favorite sleeper!
