1996 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


I bought the car from an private owner
with 58,000 miles, whohad purchased it
from a Budget Rental store (that was
probably MY biggest mistake). Hehad
the transmission rebuilt. Small
annoying things have gone wrong -
relays, rusted rear brake caliper,
windshield washer problems, etc.
Larger problems - a u-joint in the
steering column had to be replaced
(the mechanic said this was probably a
factory defect). A head gasket blew
in the summer and ruined the engine (I
failed to read the signs - rust in the
coolan). Engine replaced from '98
Taurus - the car runs great now
(sigh). The body is rusting in a rear
fender well.

Highway driving is good.
