1990 Ford Taurus L 4dr Sedan


Review

Back in 1990 the Taurus was perhaps
the best in the "family car" class. I
ran the car over 200,000 miles with
surprisingly few problems. Nothing
flashy but it was a runner. Only
recurring problem was a TFI module
Ford would not recall. Skipped to
Honda Accord in 1998. Sorry Ford,
while you were ahead in 1990, by '98
you were not.


Best Features

Torque torque torque, great style, rugged (could handle a hail storm)


Worst Features

Make a high HP engine that gets good fuel economy for once!

1990 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan


Review

This is possibly one of the best cars I
have ever owned. It is fast, fun, easy
to modify(I have a supercharged one
with over 530hp and it runs 12.8s at
the 1/4). And when you want it too it
hauls your family to where they want to
go.


Best Features

fast steering, FWD, great hp unmodified,stealthy


Worst Features

nothing

1990 Ford Taurus L 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car for well under what
the retail value is..and it was in
good shape. Well maintained, it has
not shown the slightest sign of
unreliability. It is my daily driver
and many times is forced to sit and
idle for long periods of time.


Best Features

Good steering and responsive acceleration. Could have come with more features, my car is the extreme base model..

1990 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


Review

The '90 Taurus was my first car, and I
beat the living crap out of it. I
would drive 60+mph on country dirt
roads, drive it across fields, and all
kinds of things you're not suppost to
do in a "family car." The amazing
thing was that even with the beating I
gave this car, it kept on going. Only
problems I ever had were minor things
that come w/ age. It was hard to part
w/ this beast of the suburbs, but I
needed something good for long trips,
and while I loved the Taurus, it's fuel
economy wasn't the greatest.
