2001 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


As a salesman in the typical salesman
vehicle, it did its job. I finally
turned it in 140,000 miles later. 3
sets of front brakes, tires, a water
pump, and a battery. The original
battery gave out after only a year.
The front rotors warp easily and
brakes heat up too fast in the
mountains. The steering wheel squeaks.
It was a sled for power and had the
turning radius of a truck, but held
the road on winding roads. If you want
a slow car that looks fast and is
reliable, buy one. The price should
come down quickly as companies are
starting to sell off their fleet

Best Features

The outside styling. The trunk space. The cabin filter. The flip down armrest that converts into a seat.

Worst Features

Get rid of that anemic 3.0 liter engine on the SE and LX so nobody will get stuck with it! Use the SES engine on all models. Improve the front brake cooling or use 4 wheel disc.
