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


A great car except it requires about 50 seconds from a cold start before use. During this time the lifters or tappits do not receive oil, make extremely disconcerting noises, and are very irritating expecially when the dealership says there is nothing wrong. Well, there is! This car will be sold before the next one is purchased. A Taurus-probably not!

Best Features

style, seats, excelleration, radio, mileage, ease of handling

Worst Features

Fix the engine to operate properly expecially when the customer leaves the unit overnite and the service manager still can not hear the problem upon start-up the next morning.
