I bought my Taurus a little bit ago, and overall so far its been a good car. Transmission has not failed yet (knock on wood - has 148k on it), but it does shift quite hard and abruptly. Check engine light has been on since I've had brought it to be looked at and apparently its nothing, so I don't know about that issue. If your looking for something cheap to go from point A to point B, go for it, if your looking for something for road rrips, get a Honda.
The radio control on the dashboard.
No improvements - just make the newer models much better than the 94!
Since the day we brought our Taurus
home, it has been nothing but trouble.
The head gasket, brake system, pumps,
air conditioner compresser, and who
knows what else had the car in the shop
more than in our driveway. I suggest
you continue looking for a better
deal. We originally paid 1500 and by
the time all repairs were made, we put
more than 3000 dollars into it.
Improvements? How about designing a
car that won't break down every other
The Ford Taurus was a solid if
unspectacular vehicle for the first
90,000 miles. After that, all hell
quickly breaks loose: the transmission
goes, the electrical system turns into
a nightmare, and the engine slowly
falls apart. Ford? Never again.
bought this car with 86,000 miles from
a certified dealership. since then
i've replaced the transmission 4 times
and have had to replace the entire
engine. a truly poorly built car. the
only reason i still have it is because
i still owe money for the piece of
junk. DON'T BUY ONE. STAY AWAY FROM
FORDS ALL TOGETHER!!!
well, it's looks are average i guess.
if you like four doors. other than
that i guess the comfort. but it wont
be comfortable sitting in your garage
when it breaks down.
