SHO me the way
By regfootball on


1999 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan


55,000 miles. Fast if you step on it.
In need of brakes tires struts.
Car feels beat up, but its a Ford over
50k miles I should expect that.
Radio stinks, no in dash CD. More
sound deadening would be nice. Front
seats are way comfy. Engine sounds
awesome. Slow off the line, above 3500
rpm it starts to kick it. Trunk could
be larger. Paint, body still good.
Harsh ride over bumps doesn't help.
Steering and handling very good when
tires were newer. Excellent touring
car passing power awesome. Tranny
kicks down slow. Be aware: design
defect with v8 SHO's and camshaft
design. Ford trying to hide it. Ford
should fix this for ticked off
owners. V8sho dot com.

Best Features

Front seats are waaayyyy comfy. Lots of room. Interior and exterior of SHO looks stylish, base Taurus is ugly. 32v surge of power when you step on it. Airy and open feeling cabin, great visibility.

Worst Features

New transmission and radio, better/quieter tires, ride over bumps can be less harsh, quieter inside, nicer plastic, fix camshaft design defects for owners. Better leather. Car starting to feel loose. Trunk and sunroof are small. More aggressive looking GEFX and spoiler.
