Trusty but Rusty
By Jerame on


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


I have owned my 2002 Ford Taurus for the past 6 years and have 123,000 miles on it and can say it has been a comfortable and dependable car to this point. I had to replace the front rotors at about 90k and have both ball joints replaced in the front end, but outside of that it is a good daily driver. Be careful to watch above the rear fenders for rust as it likes to start from the inside, I found out that they tend to rust very easily due to not being sealed well at the factory, mine didn't show rust until 6 months outside of the 6 year body warranty and the factory would not help. Overall I like to exterior looks and smooth lines, but the rust is getting worse.

Best Features

Smooth ride, nice interior layout, dependable.

Worst Features

Do a better job sealing the rear fenders from rusting from the inside out. Improve the front end ball joints and rotors to last longer.
