1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Wagon


It is an okay car for the money we spent. We have had some repairs at 72,000. The biggest thing, and something we would have liked to know before we purchased the car, is that the Taurus has problems with the heater core and the heater going out. We're working on the second time of backflushing the heater core in order to avoid having to replace it. It is very expensive (and cold)! It is a comfortable, powerful, and roomy car - good for road trips, camping, and trips to the hardware store. A very nice back seat - for people and our large dog. I would recommend buying one, just know that there are some flaws associated with the Taurus Wagon.

Best Features

That it is roomy, powerful, and comfortable and it gets okay gas mileage without having to buy an SUV. It holds all of our gear to do outdoor stuff, home improvements, and travel.

Worst Features

The center console is inconvenient (drink holders and such). Also, dash is a bit confusing (oval). Problems with heater core, sensor warning lights (door ajar and e-brake). It needs something on the doors to repel shoping carts and car doors - we've had a few dents that way.
