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


Review

The interior color gray is kind of boring. But my huge concern is the brake system. If I have to stop quickly and I press down on the brakes, it will stop THEN keep going after it stops! It is very scary and I feel totally unsafe. I had them checked 3 times and each time I was told that it is just the way the car is. Be very careful if you get this car! It is very roomy. The seats are not comfortable after a short ride. It is kind of sporty looking and can switch lanes quickly, which is nice.


Favorite Features

Roomy.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the darn brakes.

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


Review

I am very happy with this vehicle. It is very smooth and overall there have not been any problems with it. It feels much more solid than the older Tauruses.


Favorite Features

I love the wood trim interior and the 400-watt Mach Audio system. The two tone leather seats are nice too.


Suggested Improvements

The body could be a little stiffer. It is definitely not a sports car, but still handles well.

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


Review

One year ago I was shopping for a car. I think I got a deal, and purchased an almost new, fully loaded 2003 Ford Taurus SEL Centennial Edition beauty with 7000 miles on it. Paid $14,000 plus $1500 premium extended warranty for 6 years or 75,000 miles. She was reliable. Love this car. I replaced factory tail lights with Altezza euro tail lights so she looks cool now. It still looks sharp on the roads; you might see many copycats around, as Hondas, Lexus and Toyotas. They are not fast enough to copy Focus and Taurus. If you are looking for Taurus, Duratec engine is a must. You will enjoy good acceleration.


Favorite Features

Everything.


Suggested Improvements

None. Taurus will be discontinued this year so there is no reason to improve something. Rear disc brakes would be nice.

Review

This is my 2nd Taurus and I love the way it handles. The price was right for the features and the quality is there.


Favorite Features

Love the sound system and moonroof/sunroof. I have children and it is a good ride for all of us, also love the adjustable pedals.


Suggested Improvements

Would have a feature to turn the passenger side airbag off in case you have to use it for a young child 4 and up(carpool)
