2004 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this car brand new about a year ago. Paid $12,000 for it. No major problems with it. Front wheel makes squeaky noises, and the dealer cannot fix the problem. It is no big deal, I can barely hear it with the windows down. The car is really smooth to drive. The suspension is extremely soft, but it also handles like a boat. The previous car that I owned was a '99 Chevy Lumina; the Ford handles better overall. The engine is slow and sluggish. The transmission is even worse; it never knows what gear it is supposed to be in. However if you drive normally you won't have any problems, just don't expect much from the V6. Overall it has been a good experience. Smooth, soft, fast on the highway.


Best Features

Smooth ride, huge on the inside, big trunk. Low profile.


Worst Features

The regular V6 is SLOW, the transmission is horrible. I would recommend going with the DOHC engine if you expect any kind of perfomance from your vehicle.

Good sedan, good overall car, short on looks but spoiler and rims help. Lots of room and comfort for the price. I drive 26 miles to work; some in city and some highway and my mpg is 20.

Duratec engine.

Need rear discs.

2004 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan w/Duratec (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I really love my Taurus. This is the third Taurus that I have owned. I love the comfort and looks of the car. I love the fact that it is a solid car and that I feel safe in it.


Best Features

I love the leather interior and wood accents.


Worst Features

The only thing that I would change is reposition the cup holders in the front so they are not so close to the people in the seats.

2004 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned two 2004's. The first one was lost in an accident. The Taurus' safety features saved our lives. I was so pleased I replaced it with another Taurus. We love this car. It drives wonderful, great gas mileage. My wife feels safe in this car. No problems with the car.


Best Features

Duratec 201HP engine. Also really like the fold down back seats; you can carry tons of stuff when they are down.


Worst Features

Wished it had automatic headlights like GM's Twilight Sentinel.
