2002 Ford Taurus SEL Deluxe 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I bought this SES with a DOHC engine used in '03. It currently has 104,000 miles on it as I drive a lot. I've had problems like other reviews. Replaced two oxygen sensors at 70,000 miles. Torque converter on the transmission went bad and then a sensor went bad causing a problem that appeared to be the transmission again at 100,000 miles. One window has never worked -- won't pay $200 to fix it. Has new tires and alignment -- still seems to vibrate, lots of wind noise. Looks very sporty and has a powerful engine when running right but I have little faith in this car since it has been undependable compared to other cars I've owned. Depreciated so fast I'm stuck with it for awhile -- hope the troubles are over!

Favorite Features

Sporty looking and comfortable. Powerful engine for queen of the road driving.

Suggested Improvements

I hope they have gotten these problems fixed in newer models -- no way I'm buying another Taurus (or any Ford) to find out.
