1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


I paid at $11,000 at 64,000 hwy miles from a pharmaceutical sales company in 1999. I spent $250 for a brake job inc warped rotors after 1st yr. My miles were lower than average but replaced brakes and tires often for the 1st 3 yrs. Overheating problems came and I spent quite a bit to get the system flushed & new coolant. The heater was not working reliably as coolant continued to leak out from the system recovery tank even after replacing pressure caps 2x . At 98,000 miles the Transmission gave out & it cost $4400. Door ajar light & check engine lights came on past yr. Heater stopped working., Leak in A/C system means no air. Now it wont pass smog & camshaft position sensor went out.

Best Features

cruise control is nice, radio works great, electric windows still work. trunk access with fold down seats is great for long objects.

Worst Features

A/C brakes transmission safety sensors overheating issues need to be addressed. Quality must be a priority and not a slogan. Why are consumers no longer trusting made in USA? Produce quality products at better prices then come back and regain your customers.
