Transmission is a criminal offense!!!
By saxophobe on


1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


We purchased our 98 Ford Taurus because
it got such a good rating on the
Edmunds and Consumer Reports sites.
This car was reportedly owned by
someone that worked at the dealership
and only had 40 K on the odometer. At
81 K, our transmission failed and we
had to get it rebuilt to the tune of
$2700!!! This was for a car we were
still paying on and had < 100 K
miles?!?! Ford wouldn't do anything
about it either. If you buy one, get
the extended warranty.

Best Features

Lumbar support, keyless entry, 24 valve DOHC engine is nice

Worst Features

TRANSMISSION!!!! Also the power windows don't always work either.
