1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan


I loved the comfort of the '90 version,
so after driving a Protege around for
four years, it was time to go back to

The Taurus is solid for the $$$ you pay
for it. I paid $11k for it in '99
(with 30,000 miles), versus an Accord
which would have cost me $17k. At
117,000 miles now (Dec. '03), it's time
to trade-in for another car (unlike
our '92 Accord, which is going strong
at 150,000 miles). As with my '90
Taurus, I am starting to experience
reliability issues after 100,000 miles,
and I fear that it will nickel and dime
me to death. But, I got what I paid
for, and am happy (and more
comfortable) for the experience.

Best Features

Comfort. The seats are like sitting on a couch. I also like the unique exterior design of the '97.

Worst Features

Not nearly as reliable long-term as the Accord (but not nearly as expensive either).
