1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Beautiful with alloy wheels and very comfortable. However, the air wasn't working when I bought it at 53,000 miles, but forgot to check it until after sale. Then it needed a new transmission at 56K, but received a used one for $1200 since new was almost $3000. Then oil leaks, coolant leaks, and at 70K the heat stopped working. Squeaks and rattles here and there. I called Ford three times about the transmission, asking for help, and each time they said engineering would get back to me. Can you guess if they did? Not. If this vehicle had had a 5 year, 60,000 mile warranty, the transmission would've been covered, but the warranty was 3/36. Plus, the resale is horrendous. Avoid.

Best Features

Comfort, power, size, fold-down rear seats, ease of loading trunk, automatic door locking when car is put into drive.

Worst Features

Quality control and a better warranty.
