1995 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan


Review

I agree with all enthusiasm expressed
for the SHO's performance. However,
watch out. My '95 held up admirably
until 2002. Then I got socked with
numerous expensive repairs, over $1000
each. The Yamaha engine is bullet-
proof, but the Ford parts gave me
significant trouble. I broke down
twice in two months.


Best Features

Power, power, power. I was still sad to see it go, even after all the trouble it gave me.


Worst Features

Exhaust system, antenna, sunroof motor, air conditioner components, many parts that are hard to find. I had to wait 3 months for a part. Ford said they do not make this part any more (!).

1995 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan


Review

The SHO was an excellent car. It is
too bad that newer comparable versions
do not exist. My husband and I love
our SHO; however, we have had our fair,
or more than fair, share of problems.
Our SHO has 106,000 miles and has
provided us with a few headaches.
Ford is not well known for
reliability. Unless the SHO is
replaced with something comparable we
opt not to buy Ford for in the future.


Best Features

I love the sound our SHO makes. The modified exhaust purrs like a cat.


Worst Features

Make a vehicle that will last for well over 100,000 miles.

Review

is it a family car or a sport car?
well, if it were a normal taurus, the
previous would be the awnser, however
it is an sho. who doesnt love a v6 with
220 hp in a family sedan? i love
getting this beast out and showing up
all the kids who have their brand new
imports or their daddy's mustang. this
car is simply fierce. with a new ram
air intake and hi-flow exhaust ive
increased my power to 250 for about
$500. with the added power mustang gts
are in my reach and even the normal
camaro is no problem. this things
biggest advantage is surprise. no one
expects to lose to a taurus, sho or no.


Best Features

220hp standard in family sedan, leather, power everything, surprise


Worst Features

please, if you gonna race it get the intake and exhaust, youll love yourself for it

Review

Just bought my '95 SHO and I love it so
far. Leather, JBL audio, cassette/CD,
moonroof, auto temp., wonderful car.
People are so surprised when they think
you have just a regular ole Taurus and
you blow them off the line. This is my
first American car, always had Nissans
and my last car was a '98 Maxima SE and
this SHO is quicker. Not as fast as the
newer Maximas though, since they have
155HP. I plan on pumping up the horses
though.


Best Features

The car is very comfortable and the Yamaha engine is great. The seats are very comfortable and you fit nice and snug in them. When cornering the seats keep you in place.


Worst Features

There are some squeeks and rattles in the interior but its not bad and to be expected somewhat from an older vehicle. Ford needs to bring back the SHO though!
