1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


I was sceptical when I bought our 98
Taurus SE in 1999 sold as a "program
car". I figured I would be throwing
money into this car since Taurus didnt
have a very good track record in the
past. I now have 97,000 miles on the
car and it is still going strong.
Never had any problems whatsover.Gas
mileage is still about 27-30 mpg
highway and considerable less in
city. I have the DOHC engine which I
recommend. Lots of power. I do not
like the styling of this car...looks
like a bubble. Like the styling of
the 2000 and newer Taurus'. This is
no Lexus or Infinity, so it does have
squeeks and rattles and doesnt have a
very good ride quality, but I am all

Best Features

DOHC Duratec Engine. Large trunk. Good highway mileage. Reliability. Engine oil filter easy to reach.

Worst Features

Better styling (done in 2000) Better seats Improve transmission shift points Make sparkplugs easier to change
