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.

Vehicle: 2003 Ford Taurus SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This is the second Taurus I've owned and have been impressed how much better this car is compared to the 1999. I have had the car for 16 months and not one mechanical problem. I love the ride of this car and the reliability of it. My brother's 2002 Altima is always in the shop, not my Taurus! What luxury at a great price.




Thank you taurus

Luxury on the cheap

Vehicle: 2003 Ford Taurus SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

My wife and I decided on the 2003 Taurus SEL w/Leather, wood, adjstble pedals, mnroof, 6-cd console changer, MACH sound, auto climate control, window lock-out, 200-hp v6, 24valve DOHC, ABS, cruise control, side- mirror entry light, keyless entry, theft/perimeter alarm and more. The car is very, very comfortable (coming from an ex-SUV driver, this wasn't hard to find, however), handles very well, gets about 24mpg on the hwy (I speed a lot). The CD changer in the center console makes access a lot easier than in the trunk. The dealer dropped $1200 off retail list and the $500 rebate from Ford plus the 0.0 percent Ford Credit financing for 60 months.

Vehicle: 2003 Ford Taurus SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Only 3500 miles thusfar, but I have been surprised with its excellent overall handling and quietness. The 200 HP Duratec engine is impressive. No complaints or problems to report.
