1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Had an '88 Taurus that had 193,000 miles on it before i had to get rid of it...it was a shame. Bought the '98 Taurus with 16,000 miles, and currently have about 120,000. The transmission had to be replaced at about 30,000, but thankfully it was under warranty. The car has always had problems, but never one to warrant selling it. The last 2 years have been plagued with heating issues. Gas mileage is acceptable, and has decent acceleration (although it takes about a half second to kick in after you push the pedal). The car, overall has been more trouble than it's worth.

Best Features

Comfortable on longer trips, roomy interior. i learned a lot about fixing cars on this one.

Worst Features

Styling, reliability, heating issues.
