Blown head gasket, etc.
By Trading it in on


1994 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Wagon


1st year: Dealership ripped me off:
water pump, fuel pump, 2 starters
(defective parts), keyless entry DOA,
various hoses and the coin holder is
holding the previous owners pennies
hostage. Dealership had it longer than
I did the first month. 2nd year: Since
then: replaced radiator, 1 starter,
replaced 1 brake light, a/c died, radio
is losing it too, blown head gasket and
2 other leaks, at least one of us has
carbon monoxide poisening, tranny is
leaking, 6 mn. old radiator leaking.
Dealership has it now and for me to
repair it will turn it upside down!
Consumer reports did not say anything
about a defective head gasket!

Best Features

Good stuff: I love my big green machine! It's an easy ride, scares the hell out of people when I drive up behind them or pass them, great for camping and long haul trips and is great for hauling anything. I hate that I have to give it up to trade in for a car with less defects.

Worst Features

For whatever reason this 94 model has several EXPENSIVE and repetitive defects in parts: fuel pump and water pump, starters, head gasket and radiator. Even the replacements parts are defective! I bought at 53,000 and am ending it at 86,000 as a trade in.
