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


I drove an '03 Taurus for 7 years, and in that time I had to replace the transmission, the cam, struts, break lines, the muffler, and a multitude of repairs which I have repressed from my memory.
The car produced phantom odors, odd sounds, and mysterious leaks.
The front passenger floor flooded constantly for some reason.
The gas mileage was terrible, I'd say around 18 highway and 12 city by a rough estimate.
The transmission is twitchy so dont expect a smooth ride. Be prepared to spend a lot on repairs, my advice: save your money and buy a honda or something.

Best Features

Cabin size, trunk space

Worst Features

Gas mileage was poor for it's class, numerous mechanical failures, poor acceleration
