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


Review

Multiple problems since day one. Trunk leak, 4 visits to fix; cruise control nonfunctional - bad servo; wiper motor broke; swaybars rotted in first year; heater fan broke - bad resistor. It's too bad, was a great deal and drove nice, good looking and comfortable. Not great in the snow though because of wide tires. Repairs all under warranty, but will only fix during the week requiring car rental; they don't give free loaners. I thought Taurus reliability went up? This car is junk quality. They build it with cheap parts. We will trade in as soon as warranty is up. So much for a good deal. Back to foreign cars.


Favorite Features

Comfortable leather seats. Big size sedan.


Suggested Improvements

Work on quality improvement and stop buying cheap junk parts to put in these cars.

Review

This taurus is the best car I ever owned. Rides very smooth. Very roomy. I'm 375 pounds and it has plenty of room for me. Trunk is big.


Favorite Features

Movable pedals. 6 disc cd changer in center console. digital features that tell you how many miles left to empty, and gas mpg.Shift on floor.


Suggested Improvements

Fog lights would be nice. Little better mpg, but overall very nice car.

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


Review

This car gets a bum rap. It handles better than the Toyota Camry, which was a contender for me as well. It came down to the simple fact that the Taurus is better accustomed to American-sized people.


Favorite Features

The computer information system that gives you your mpg, miles to empty, etc...


Suggested Improvements

None that I can think of yet.
