2000 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car 4 years ago. I have
had no problems with it other than
replacing the battery and the
inconvenience of having recall repairs
done. Even those have been infrequent
and insignificant. The car still has
decent power and acceleration and is a
good reliable car for a practical
family man like me. She is paid off
with, knock on wood, 100K miles to go !!


Best Features

MAch stereo, comfy ride, safety rating, decent fuel economy, reliability.


Worst Features

A bit more power...Maybe a 240 or 260 HP engine. More quiet cabin...

Review

Run, don't walk away from buying a
Taurus! Although this vehicle is fun
to drive and looks sharp, it is prone
to mechnical problems. This is the
second Taurus sedan I have owned (and
the last) and both had
transmissionproblems at about 70,000
miles (under normal city driving
conditions). Plus, they do not hold
their value, so you;re going to get
sunk on the financial end of the deal,
too. Do yourself a favor...buy a
Honda, a Toyota, but whatever you buy,
DO NOT BUY A TAURUS!!!


Worst Features

Improve the transmission so that it is more reliable.

Review

I purchased this vehicle with 13k
miles. It was a good purchase price;
possibly too good to be true. I have
had problems with engine knocking since
it was under warranty. The service
manager said - we can't find anything
it must just be bad fuel. To this day
(80K miles later) it still knocks. The
brakes squeal no matter what you do to
them. Now the air conditioner has
decided to work when it wants - I live
in the south so this car will be traded
in very soon. I really wanted this car
but it is always something. It may be
minor or major but it will keep you
busy driving to a mechanic!


Best Features

I like the interior design. You can reach all controls without taking your eyes off the road to see what you are doing. The trunk is roomy and the fold down seats are great.


Worst Features

RELIABILITY!! A car should not tear up every time you turn around. Make a good lasting car that doesn't need to go to the service dept on a regular basis.

Review

Covert Ford delivered the car with a
huge scratch on the drivers side
window. A sign I should have backed out
of the deal immediately.

The AC unit has been replaced 2 times
in 4 years. Both time failing on long
trips.

The seams on the Leather Interior seats
are coming apart.

The rear door panels on both side the
vinyl is coming un-glued from the doors
Covert Ford can replace the rear door
panels for only $900.

It is the loudest driving car I have
ever owned. Road noise will drown out
the stereo system - not to mention a
telephone call.

Ford is poor Quality - Covert is bad
service!


Worst Features

Terrible Quality of workmanship and design.

Review

This car has been reliable. I had a
handful of minor dealer solved
problems when the car was new. After
that the car has been perfect. NEVER
BUY THIS CAR NEW. It was a deal for
me at the start. Since then I've been
upside down on payment ever since. I
would strongly reccomend getting one a
few years old from a private seller.
This car has the worst depreciation.
It is because you see them everywhere
and most folks are looking for
something unique. Dealers have a
tough time selling them for this
reason.


Best Features

This car comes standard with lots of stuff including a V-6. All for lots less than the competition with four cylinders.


Worst Features

Don't make so many, in fact quit selling so many of them for rental/company cars too. Also, More power in standard V-6.
