1999 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


I adopted the car from my mom which she bought it brand new. She always had it serviced by Ford for everything. The design of the front rotors are under spec for the car. Ford should have used bigger rotors. The rotors would warp very easy and would have to be turned or replaced. This is with factory rotors and good after market ones. The transmissions are known for problems with these cars. The trans oil pump failed when the pin broke and the differential had to be replaced. This is Ford short cutting the transmissions. Like I said, this is a known problem. The 3.0 Duratec motors are pretty strong, but a real pain to get to the back plugs, you have to remove the intake to get access.

Best Features

Love the room in the interior and the trunk. Duratec engine has plenty of power.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, transmissions, front brakes. Headlight design could have been better for brighter lights.
