1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Wagon


My family has been completely satisfied
with this Taurus GL wagon. It rides
very smooth and exhibits confident and
well-balanced handling. Only 2 small
people can fit in the back 3rd-row
seat, but anyone under about 10-12
years old will do just fine. There
have been a couple of cracking plastic
parts. (One runner on the roof and a
vent control inside) It gets 19-20
miles per gallon in town and about 25
mpg on the highway. Although many
critics may disagree, I think it is
more roomy and comfortable than a Honda
Accord and is more reliable than a
Volvo V70. I have been converted into a
Ford fan with this great car.

Best Features

3rd-row seat (car seats 8 not too uncomfortably), Handling is outstanding.

Worst Features

Rear light on top of rear window needs a better paint job concept- I have seen several where they peel way before their time. Interior controls on windows, locks, and cruise-control should be backlit so one can see them at night. Vanity mirrors should be lit as a standard item.
