This is my first car, I have ever owned. I bought it all in cash. So far since ownership I have had two major problems. Both problems were, fortunately, easy to fix. Rack and Pinion system was bad, and was replaced. And lastly, while driving, a strut broke on the left front with no prior indication or warning, taking the front left shock with it. The engine could use a little more kick and transmission is a little clunky and noisy. All in all this has been a great car. Durable engine fires every time the key is turned. Heat and AC excellent.
Tight, smooth handling. Good AC and heat
Transmission is clunky and nosiy. Hard shifts at low speed. Alignment is funky, needs to be aligned occasionally with for no reason.
This car is super reliable, super-quick, and I feel super-safe. However, it doesn't have the best fuel economy and it's not getting the "Most Beautiful Car Award" But, it's been a trooper and seen 2 children through high school without ever breaking down. That makes this a million dollar car!
Super-duper comfort. Feels almost like a Lincoln. Ummm, good speakers, really cold air, really, really quick takeoffs.
I was looking for an affordable used
car, and I ended up looking at a Silver
taurus SE with all the options. The
great thing is that Taurus' are so
popular that you can find one easily
and cheaply. They are dependable. I
haven't had any major problems. The AC
is awesome and so is the driving
stability. Can't say the same about
the brakes. Even with all new brakes,
this heavy car brakes slowly. Its a
great travel car for 4 or even 5
people. Its design is so bland that it
still fits in with todays models, so
you won't feel like your driving an
older car! I love my Taurus. It has
over 150K on it and looks like it could
go for 200K.
