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

Review

The week after my girlfriend bought this car with 43000mi on it, she took it on a trip from central MN to Colorado. They encountered problems the entire way! It stalled 3 times in the mountains, twice needing to be jumped, and once more when they got back in MN. 5 trips to the dealer and 3 batteries later, we thought it was fixed. Now whenever the temp gets above 65 it will sputter at idle and accelerate like tortuise for the first 150 feet. Also, we started learning why this car is called "disposable" when parts started falling off and breaking in the interior. Not to mention the annoying heat shield rattle and fuel cap sensor! At least it gets 28mpg avg. We'll get a Malibu next time.

Best Features

Simple, no nonsense controls for everything. Took about 5 minutes to learn where everything was for radio, cruise control, lights, etc.

Worst Features

Bring back the tried and true inline 6- cylinder! I'll never give mine up! P.S. to Ford, I said 'tried and true', not 'well maybe we'll change this instead', Ford part interchangability stinks
