2000 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan


I bought this Taurus SES new in 2000. It had no major problems for the first three years, other than 3 recalls. After 3 years things got interesting. At 44K, one of the rear coil springs snapped which destroyed a new tire as well as a rear strut. I ended up having to have both rear springs replaced, a new strut mount, 2 new struts, a new tire, and an alignment. The cost was over $1,500. The kicker was, this very problem was considered a safety recall on the front wheels, but not the back. Ford Customer service was not helpful. At 60,000 miles, my transmission began leaking fluid all over the garage floor. This ended up costing me $925 to for new gaskets and a torque converter.

Best Features

I like the exterior styling and the 24 valve V6 engine is powerful.

Worst Features

I only drive my car 10,000 miles per year and take good care of it. I have been very surprised at some of the repairs I have had to make to this car. They just don't make any sense for the amount of mileage and car age. I have decided my next car will not be a Ford.
