1996 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


I bought this Taurus off of a lease
program. It had regular maintenance
and 50,000 mi. when I bought it. At
about 65,000 mi. it started having
problems. The oil pan gasket was not
installed correctly from the factory,
resulting in an oil leak. The rear
brakes have failed 3 time in the past
two years resulting in expensive
repairs repeatedly. The entire cooling
system and electrical systems have
failed resulting in expensive repairs,
and to top everything off, there is a
HORRIBLE squeak in rear end when I hit
a bump. I was really disappointed with
this car.

Best Features

The interior design is spectacular and comfortable. Lots of room front and back. The trunk is a nice size.

Worst Features

The engine is impossible to work on, the exhaust system is routed in the most inconvenient way, the paint is horrible, the brakes don't work correctly, and the transmission is very sloppy.
