1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


No major repairs since new now has over
77 thousand miles. 24V engine is very
nice. Only a few things about the car
that needs addressed. First of all the
transmission, since day one, when you
put the pedal down to pass someone the
transmission is like "What?" and seems
confused as whether to downshift or
remain in the same gear. Then it jerks
after it figures out what to do and
finally downshifts. Secondly, it takes
about 10 minutes upon initial startup
before botton on the gear shift lever
will push in. Lastly the bubble design
makes rear head room tight and the
trunk small. Other than these issues it
has been a great car.

Best Features

24v Engine with dual exhaust. Engine reliability. The car has NO squeaks or rattles, I have been very suprised.

Worst Features

The bubble problem has already been fixed. Transmission needs work, expecially the decision making computer. Dont use such cheap plastic in the interior, such as the plastic oval that surrounds the radio and climate controls. Not much else.
