Fun to drive car
By JonathanV on


1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


So far an excellent car. I have put
about 4,000 miles on the car since I
bought it, and it has performed
flawlessly. It had 82,000 miles when
purchased. I am a senior in college,
so having a reliable car is important
to me, considering I go to school 600
miles from home.

The wipers seem to come on by
themselves occasionally, but so far
that is the only problem.

The engine and transmission seem to be
doing fine, and are much
smoother/quieter than some of
the 'professoinal' critics would have
you believe. Nearly imperceptible
upshifts/downshifts. Does not use or
leak even a drop of oil, a first for
any American car I've ever owned. A/C
works perfectly.

Best Features

The 98-99 Taurus models were the best looking ones in my opinion. I love how the car just flows like liquid metal. I didn't like the design until I saw it up close and got used to looking at it. Now I love it. The interior is also very nice and not plasticky like GMs from this time.

Worst Features

Would have been better if all the SE models had the Duratec V6 rather than the Vulcan. Also, better water seals on the front passenger-side lights were needed.
