2003 Ford Taurus Sedan SEL Deluxe 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I took a chance on this vehicle. I own the Taurus SEL deluxe model. New, this vehicle is $24,000. I bought this car for 10,700. Talk about depreciation. Yea for second owners. Had only 14,700 miles in the summer of 2006 when I bought this car. This car is built very well. It is loaded with all the same amenities of a $40,000 car. It rides very nice, and I am extremely pleased that I have it.


Best Features

Moon roof, acceleration, quality, interior, speaker system, compass, and climate control. I could go on.


Worst Features

None. Ford outdid themselves on the SEL deluxe edition.

2003 Ford Taurus Sedan SEL Deluxe 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The interior color gray is kind of boring. But my huge concern is the brake system. If I have to stop quickly and I press down on the brakes, it will stop THEN keep going after it stops! It is very scary and I feel totally unsafe. I had them checked 3 times and each time I was told that it is just the way the car is. Be very careful if you get this car! It is very roomy. The seats are not comfortable after a short ride. It is kind of sporty looking and can switch lanes quickly, which is nice.


Best Features

Roomy.


Worst Features

Fix the darn brakes.

Review

I am very happy with this vehicle. It is very smooth and overall there have not been any problems with it. It feels much more solid than the older Tauruses.


Best Features

I love the wood trim interior and the 400-watt Mach Audio system. The two tone leather seats are nice too.


Worst Features

The body could be a little stiffer. It is definitely not a sports car, but still handles well.

Review

One year ago I was shopping for a car. I think I got a deal, and purchased an almost new, fully loaded 2003 Ford Taurus SEL Centennial Edition beauty with 7000 miles on it. Paid $14,000 plus $1500 premium extended warranty for 6 years or 75,000 miles. She was reliable. Love this car. I replaced factory tail lights with Altezza euro tail lights so she looks cool now. It still looks sharp on the roads; you might see many copycats around, as Hondas, Lexus and Toyotas. They are not fast enough to copy Focus and Taurus. If you are looking for Taurus, Duratec engine is a must. You will enjoy good acceleration.


Best Features

Everything.


Worst Features

None. Taurus will be discontinued this year so there is no reason to improve something. Rear disc brakes would be nice.
