Review of the 2003 Ford Taurus

  • If you value feature content and domestic origin more than build quality and predicted future worth, the Ford Taurus is a great car to consider.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent value for the money, high level of safety equipment and crash protection, available as a sedan or a wagon.

  • Cons

    Rental car stigma, poor expected resale value, not as refined as most other midsize sedans.

  • What's New for 2003

    New for 2003, the SEL trim level offers a unique instrument cluster with a satin-finish background, as well as Imola leather trimmed seats and dark wood trim. You can now get a real wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel, and you'll want to note that power windows and locks, as well as tilt steering and floor mats, are standard on all models.

An exceptional value, it has rough edges that give it character and it drives like a charm. Throw it around and it remains tame and easy to control. In traffice it is nimble, on the open road it is smooth as silk. I use to rent these, and then realized what a great car this is now. The best feature is it's predictability.




My new car!

When we were looking for a nice, roomy affordable car ....... well We Found IT! This is a great car. Having three kids and needing a lil room for them to sit and to be affordable and good looking were all important to us. This is a good car for a small family or like ours not (so) small. I am happy with my Taurus! The people at Paris Ford were excelent in there patience and were very informative. I will always own a Ford!
