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


Review

Had the car since April 1st (april
fools day) Not the exact model I
wanted. Got suckered into a black
model instead of metallic blue, but at
least I got leather seats and heated
mirrors. Whoopee! (sarcasm) I wish
that Ford would use a different tire
company than Continental. They go flat
if you look at them wrong! My '94
Taurus had more pick-up than this, but
it also got reallly bad gas mileage.
Traction control is a good idea. My
Jeep slips all over the road if it's
even sprinkling outside. The Taurus
holds to the road really well with the
TC.


Best Features

Traction control is a great feature. Auto dimming rear view mirror.


Worst Features

Wipers and high-beam in the same switch. Bad problems with my older Taurus. Rear driver side door doesn't seem to "close" correctly. Compass glares at me at night from the rear- view mirror. A little too "noticeable". Did I mention that I HATE the tires on this thing.

We bought this auto 1 year ago. I am 52
years old and by far this is the best
automobile I have ever owned. It
handles very well rain or shine.I would
recommend this automobile to everone
who wants a very comfortable ride and
a great handling vehicle !! The only
engine to get is the 24 valve DOHC !!


Best Features

24 DOHC,leather seats, console, and shifter on floor.6 cd in console.all gauges well placed and easy to read.


Worst Features

Dual temperature controls in front seating area. Trunk could be a little deeper.

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


Review

This is my 2nd Taurus. This time I went
for some luxury.Leather seating,
floor shift, spoiler and sunroof.I
purchased the spruce green color.All
in all I am thrilled with my car.My
husband is an auto mechanic, the only
imput he had was with the engine.He
did not want me to get the Duratec
engine.The 3.0 has plenty of get up
and go.So if you want a good
dependable and pretty car, this is the
car for you.


Best Features

I put 43,000 miles on my 2000 and never had it in the shop for anything. I see my friends buying their luxury cars. They've got the car back to the dealer constantly. I've never had to bring my car back. Not the 2000, not the 2003 which has nearly 9000 miles on it.

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


Review

The 2003 Taurus is a very good value
for a family sedan. With generous
rebates offered from Ford, the Taurus
becomes extremely competitive with
Camry and Accord, Taurus main
competition. This 2003 model has just
been purchased but my experience with
past Taurus ownership has been very
positive; good reliability with very
few problems. The build quality is
good. Controls and accessories are well
designed and easy to operate. A roomy
trunk for this size car. Gas mileage
with the 24V six
ranges from 22 mpg city driving to 29
mpg highway.


Best Features

No feature really stands out more than another; maybe the generous truck size and ease of accessorie use. Adjustable pedals are nice.


Worst Features

Ford needs to improve brake response. The Taurus brake sometimes feels to be a little "mushy". Although the 24V six is acceptable as far as performance/gas mileage, a little more torque would be nice; 240-250 instead of the current 200 lbs

Review

This is my second Taurus. It is very
dependable and reliable. I have never
had major problem with either car. They
also have 5 star safety rating which is
important to me. Lots of room for a mid
size car.


Best Features

CD player


Worst Features

maybe a little deeper cup holders.
