1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Since buying the Taurus, we've had tires blow out, the alternator died while we were on vacation, the alternator pulley was locked up, we had to replace the power steering pump, and now the transmission is a load of crap. This car has been more trouble than it's worth. It's been well used, and if I didn't still owe 1400 on it, I'd just junk it and get it over with.

Best Features

The engine runs great, which would be fabulous if I could say the same for the rest of the car. The seats are comfortable, and the car is roomy.

Worst Features

I'd like to see it be just a little shorter in length, because it's practically a boat. I'd also like to see some parts that didn't break down every other day. I'd like to see higher fuel economy.
