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


This car has given great value. It was purchased and used initially as a sales car but soon became the family car due to a job change that supplied a business car. The Duratech engine [24 valve] is an excellent power plant but the transmission lacks some responsiveness to the power. The new 2006 cars with this motor have a 6 speed available which may have helped. I would not hesitate to recommend the car to anyone even with its minor faults. I have performed maintenance as directed in the manual and kept good tires on the car and haven't had to replace any suspension components including brakes in 125,000 miles of 4 season driving in the upper Midwest.

Best Features

I enjoy the moon roof which has unlimited positions and is functional even on rainy days.

Worst Features

The transmission performs best with the 24 valve engine but still lacks refinement in shifting.
