comfortable.

2003 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a great car. I bought the base
model LX because I wanted a mid size no-
frills car with a solid reputation and
good looks. The finish while not made
of expensive materials is tasteful and
well laid out. The paint job is
awesome! All controls are where they
should be. The base engine while not a
tire burner has adequate smooth power
delivery. This car like every one I
have owned has its quirks. When cold
the clutch is grabby. The AC system
puts out the occasional weird smell
during Oregon’s rainy season. It would
be nice to have heat to the windows
without having to have the AC on. The
trunk release seems a little cheap.


Best Features

The finish is clean and conservative but current. A sixth seat up front is great when we have a visiting relative to cart around. We regularly average upwards of 30 mpg hi-way. Ford did a great job of making this car feel like I spent more than I did.


Worst Features

More power, Cruise control, a CD player, and resolution of the issues above are about it. I didn’t buy a $30,000 car, I know that. I did, however, get what I paid for.

2003 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

i like my 2003 ford taurus lx as far as
its comfort and fuel enconomy. i have
about 4500 miles on it as of april
2003. the only problem with the car is
that it gives off a weird smell that
smells like oil or exhaust. i have
taken it to the dealer,but they cant
find anything wrong. they have
deoderized the heating and a/c
system,but smell comes back. i have no
problem with the way the car runs
though. just frustrated with the
mysterious smell.


Best Features

in the ford taurus i like that there is plenty of leg room in the backseat even when front seats are all the way back.

Review

I traded in my 2001 mustang for this
car, its been a blessing. My family
needed the extra room for my newborn
son and 4year old. My taurus has room
for six which helps when you carry your
friends or family. As a previous owner
of a 96 taurus I love the way they
drive and the space they have inside.
Fuel economy is great and the A/C
system is better than my 98 Honda Civic.


Best Features

Six passenger, good gas mileage and great design inside and out.


Worst Features

More power for vulcan engine and more options for Lx model.
