1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


We got this Taurus GL with about 55,000
miles and after like 2,000 the belt
broke and we found out that 2 pulleys
were completely frozen. But after that
it did great. It has taken a bunch of
abuse but the biggest problem with it
so far would probably be the belt
problem and the rear driver side power
window motor frooze(which has happened
to many Tauruses over the years). It
has a pretty good amount of power for a
car its size, great when passing,
smooth ride, and tight making it great
in corners. Very reliable no more
problems and it runs better now(with
178,000) the when we got it. And to
think this is the company that made the
Ranger(horrible truck)

Best Features

Ride quality, handling, leg and head room, reliability of engine components, ample power in all speeds, aerodynamics

Worst Features

Interior is very cheesy except for the radio design, more cushion in seats, new interior design, better bolster seats, steering is too soft to me needs a little less power in it, wouldnt hurt to add an additional 20 hp to the 3.0 vulcan 12v
