1993 Ford Taurus Sedan GL 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought one in thinking I was getting
a good car with only 60,000 miles on it
but had nothing but problems. Less
than 500 miles after I bouth it my air
conditioner went out. Then under 10,000
the motor blew a Head gasket. I have
heard blown head gaskets are common in
the 3.8L motors. My mother in law owns
a 96' one with a 3.0 and has been
having better luck with hers. Also my
transmission I think was starting to
slip.


Best Features

Roomy and Comfy. I like the way it drived....just too many mach. probs.


Worst Features

3.0 maybe ok. 3.8 forget it

Review

I bought my 93 Taurus GL with a 3.0
engine 7 years ago and have had very
little problems. I can remember only
once having it worked on and that ended
up being a simple repair. With 94,000
miles on it I couldn't ask for a better
family car.


Best Features

Safety features, Strong engine


Worst Features

Better layout of dash.

Review

I purchased this vehicle new aand used
to commute to work for 6 years. My 19
year old son now drives it. The milage
is 115,000. I haad several significant
problems from the start including a
burst hose and premature brake wear.
It ran well for several years then
there were more problems starting about
3 years ago. I have replaced the
radiator, water pump, the entire
steering system, struts, wiper motor
and controls, AC compressor, power
window and lock switches. I have
invested a great deal of money but the
car runs well, it's roomy and safe.


Best Features

Interior room and comfort. Always starts


Worst Features

better quality control major components should last longer

Review

When my parents purchased my 93 Taurus
GL sedan, I hated it. It was a uncool,
4 door sedan that I soon learned had
much more potential than I had
initially thought. The 3.8L engine had
great performance, but the transmission
couldn't keep up. I had my GL for about
3 years and bought it with 113,000
miles. The last day driven it had
142,000. Other than the transmission
starting to go bad, the car ran and
handled great. The car tryed to run hot
several times, and did not run well on
hot days. It may not be really
reliable, but this car saved my life
when I was hit by a farm truck and was
sent literally flying through a line of
trees.


Best Features

Safe car, all saftey systems work well together. Strong engine ( 3.8L )


Worst Features

Improve on transmissions, and cooling of the engine.
