1997 Ford Taurus G 4dr Sedan


The Taurus is definitely made to be a throw away car. The car had a rebuilt transmission when I bought it and I had to replace the tranny again at 102,000 miles. Now at 140,000, it is slipping again. The oil pan is now leaking as well and the a/c just went out, Had to replace speed sensor as well, cost $500 bucks. It rides rough, is loud, and uses brakes up very fast. I take great care of my cars and wonder how much trouble I would have had if I didn't. I am now giving up on Fords.

Best Features

Roomy inside and roomy trunk as well, controls easy to get to.

Worst Features

Different transmission, make it less noisy to drive and smoother to drive ... actually, just go back to the drawing board.
