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


Review

I've owned 3 tauruses and am considering buying a new sho. I fix cars for a living and hate working on my own so I don't buy cars that have troubles. You name the car and I've worked on it. My 2001 Taurus 24v has been more reliable than many of my customers hondas and toyotas or nissans. With 167k on the clock and counting my wife drives 12 miles each way to work every day. We take the car on road trips of 500 miles or more at a time and have never had a failure of any thing and I don't drive the car like grandma either. Our last tuarus was a 90'sho 5 spd that had 270,000 miles on it when we sold it.


Best Features

The 24V motor. comfortable seats. large trunk space, 30 mpg hwy, handling .


Worst Features

the new eco boost SHO has everything I want

Review

I bought this car as my first car about 3 and a half years ago. As soon as I finished paying it off, it started having one major problem after another. I liked driving the car while it worked, but all too often it didn't. I have only put ~16k miles on it since January '07 and I've had 3 major breakdowns with it. Kept regular maintenance on it, the car was just a dud. I wouldn't even recommend this car to my enemies, I'm not that cruel.


Best Features

The car provided a comfortable ride from point A to point B when it worked.


Worst Features

Take a page from Toyota or Honda. Specifically, the page titled "Reliability."
