Reliable cost effective transportation
By TJM on
2001 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Nice mid size transportation that can be bought inexpensively after a year or two. Car has been very reliable with the only exception being the suspension springs. They recalled the front springs but not the back. In my opinion the front and back were defective. Other than that a nice car to drive and ride.
Comfortable drive with adequate power. Cost effective transportation. Red color is sharp. I always get or add daytime running lights. Cruise control. Comfortable seats.
Ford should consider putting a powerful 4 cylinder with a dual overhead cam in this car to get better mileage without sacrificing power. Springs were defective and Ford should have replaced them. Instead they put a shield on the front ones to shield the tire if they break. Hardly a fix.
