2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought it with 32K miles, ran great for two years. Due to bad gaskets it now it has major cooling system problems that will require replacement of the entire system. (Heater core, water pump, radiator, etc.) Have been told by 3 different repair shops that this is a common problem for the Taurus, and any repairs I make will most likely need to be repeated after a year or two. This is my second Taurus & both have had transmission issues around 100K as well. Value on this car depreciates quickly too! Not a great investment.


Best Features

Comfortable, good gas mileage.


Worst Features

Better quality parts.

2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

Generally a good basic car. I like
the styling and the way it handles,
although the base V6 is a bit under
powered. Interior comfortable enough,
back seat a little small for adults.
Gas gauge no longer works reliably.
Mechanic indicated this is a systemic
problem in the 2000's, too expensive
($600) to repair. Gas mileage could be
better. Likely go back to a LeSabre
for the size, power and better mileage.


Best Features

Handling, remote entry, room for driver, and heating and air conditioning - ranges from a furnace to a meat locker.


Worst Features

Better fuel efficiency and a little more power for base engine. A simple gas gauge that worked would also be nice.

2000 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan


Review

this car is perfect for me as a young
mother. it gives me the sporty look i
want and the room i need i have had a
few minor problems with this car
(normal wear and tear issues that occur
with any vehicle) and it does make a
strange noise in the engine that noone
can figure out. however, it has always
started without missing a beat and been
ready to roll wherever i needed to go.
i will keep this car for a long time
and have recommened other people
purchase it


Best Features

the roomy trunk, the sporty exterior, the middle console


Worst Features

the cup holders in the back seat need improved. they hide in the middle cosole, but after a few years of use they slide out with a bump and get stepped on and broken

Review

I purchased this car with 40300 miles
on it,thinking i was getting a deal,but
i was wrong,It now has 47785 miles on
it and I had this car at the dealer
about 5 times.The first were just small
things but they cost enough to fix,but
this last time took the cake,the front
coil spring broke on the driver
side,had i been going on the highway at
70mph i might not be here to tell about
it,and the bad thing about it all is it
was just inspected. I also have the
sweek in the engine,dealer says its the
rocker arms,and the brakes and rotors
problem as well.Like i said, just
another ford. Im not buying another
ford again


Best Features

the interior,the engine has good take off power and the trunk space,and all the power features.


Worst Features

Reliability,Quality,and parts that dont break in 4 years.Ford could learn a few things from dell...
