2000 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan


We bought this car as an "executive driven" used vehicle with only 5500 miles on the odometer in 2001. Other than the individual coils on the spark plugs failing at the worst times and the intake manifold blowing, the car has had only routine maintenance. The ride,fuel economy and reliability has been very good. The 24 valve engine has had the oil and filter changed regularly at 3,000 mile intervals and performs very well for an eight year old car. The leather seats are still in excellent condition and I had individual dual heating installed by the dealer at time of purchase. I hope to keep this car for the foreseeable future.

Best Features

24 valve engine. The power is there when you need it. This car has been to Florida 5 times on 2600 mile round trips and was very comfortable. Great on all trips.

Worst Features

Rear headrests. Why didn't Ford design rear headrests on the SEL model?
