1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


The Taurus has been a good daily driver
for my wife. Gas mileage usually 19-21
mpg, with 3.0 engine 12 valve. Engine
check light came on at 60K was the
coil. Cost $400 to fix since each spark
plug has its own coil pretty expensive.
Put first set of rear brakes at 65K,
but the Ford dealer said the fronts
could go another 10-15K these are the
original brakes. Weird, I thought the
fronts were suppose to wear out first,
but who's complaining.

Best Features

Flip consol in front that allows 3 in front seat. I have sat in the back seat of 50+ cars and none had more leg room than the taurus. Good job Ford.

Worst Features

205 x 65 tires too small. I up'ed to 225 X 60 and it made a huge difference in the handling. I think these are the same size they put on the SHO's
