2007 Ford Taurus SEL Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with 32K miles for $10,000. Now it's got 143K miles. Over the years it's had some problems, an alternator, wheel bearings, idle valve, and an AC compressor. I've had it in 14 states and lots of highway miles. I've used it for business and now it's my son's car. Overall it has not had a easy life but done very well. Yes there are better cars, but for the price this is a great value. The AC cools good in the Texas heat, it rides and drives good and is comfortable. It will get about 20mpg around town and 26 / 27 on the highway. Good value.

Review

So, there seems to be a common issue with this particular model of car. Sometimes, the car will simply die while you're driving it. I took it into an auto parts store, they tested the battery and couldn't find anything wrong with it. I took it into the Ford Service center, they tested the alternator, battery, fuel injector, the onboard computer, looked for updates to any of the programming, and everything tested out fine. Couldn't find a thing. I'm taking it to an electronics specialist incase somethings wrong with the ECU but I saw the "10/10" reliability ranking and had to write something since complete failure randomly while you're driving is kind of a bad thing.


Worst Features

I suggest that they make cars that don't die randomly while you're driving them or at least figure out how to diagnose such issues.

Review

I purchased my 07 Taurus in Feb with 77000 miles.
It's a nice riding car and I had no issues with it until recently, the transmission went on it, and my the warranty was expired.
Fortunately I was able to work out a solution with the dealer and had it replaced with a used transmission and a 6 month parts and labor warranty.
I would recommend this car, but if you are considering buying one, I would suggest having the transmission checked first for your own peace of mind, I see that other reviewers have had the same issue.


Best Features

Smooth riding Large trunk Roomy interior

Review

This is my moms car and was my first car to drive. We bought it used with low miles in perfect condition. I figure it was probably a rental or company car. We have had no problems at all with the car and it now has 86k miles. We have replaced all of the tires, replaced the front pads and rotors, and replaced the alternator and that's it. Personally i think the car handles and rides well for being what it is. Performance is what you would expect with 153 hp but its actually not as bad as you would think. Brakes are also very strong. The only problem with this car is the transmission is definitely slow to shift both up and down and ive heard they sometimes fail early.


Best Features

Value, Interior room, 24 mpg, not terrible looking, parts seem to be relatively inexpensive, has never died


Worst Features

Radio and speakers, tranmission shifting feel, offer abs as standard, no automatic lights

Review

I bought this car with 49 K on it from the dealer in my home town. I have taken several long trips in it and find it to be comfortable to drive long distances. I have been avg 42 MPG (IMP) with it, on the Hwy with cruise on at 55 MPH. This car is terrific for long trips, loads of trunk space and fairly comfortable when loaded with 4 (adult) passengers.


Best Features

For the money, who cares about dated looks. It has all of the most important features associated with other class of cars in this class. A/C, Automatic, All power accessories, and ABS brakes. And it does what all my other vehicles did in relative comfort.


Worst Features

No complaints about this car, has not been to the shop once for any repairs.
