1996 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


Dont let the looks fool you, this car is
very spacious, comfortable, and has some
good features. Its a bummer is that ford
cut out some features on the later
models like, rear disc brakes, rear
vents, gear indicator on dash, and

Also, do not go to Power Ford of
Huntington Beach. I had a horrible
experience with RB Bradley, who wouldn’t
fix my car when I told him what was
wrong and threatened to call the cops on
me when I refused to pay the bill until
spoke to the manager who was on vacation
for 2 days. Ford ESP is worthless when
you have to deal with b$ to get anything
fixed. For more information on the

Best Features

Keyless entry keypad on door. This is probably the best feature of the car. You can lock your keys in the car and let it warm up if you must! Also this car has rear air vents, something not common on cars in 1996, letalone many cars today unless you spring for the premium models.

Worst Features

Reliability! So far I have replaced the engine, transmission, steering rack, heater blower motor, crank pulley, and multifunction switch. I cannot say I have bad luck since ford obvious did not put any thought into the parts they designed.
