1996 Ford Taurus LX 4dr Sedan


I still commute daily (70 miles) in my LX that I bought new in '96. It will turn 162,000 miles by May '05. The Duratec V6 still runs strong, the leather interior survived 2 kids and daily abuse and looks almost new. The car handles New England winter driving just fine and has never broken down on me. This one was built in Chicago. The brake pads & rotors wear quick but years of stop/go driving may have played a role. Overall - the car's been great.

Best Features

Leather interior, CD changer, climate control, power seat, good blend of performance and gas mileage.

Worst Features

brakes / rotors, suspension.
