2004 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Nice mid-sized vehicle, very comfortable, smooth ride. But forget the gas savings,13-14 in the city and mine only has 15000 miles on it. Replaced my 454 4 barrel 88 Suburban with this, what a mistake - got 12 miles to the gallon with that driving in the city. Forget the resale value, was $6000.00 in the hole. Maybe they'll wise up and come up with more economical engine with new 08!


Best Features

Roomy.


Worst Features

Economical 6 cylinder.

Review

Great road car and the 24V engine has great performance with good gas mileage. We love to travel in this car. You can be in the seats all day and not have your back hurt.


Best Features

Great performance, comfortable seats, very good handling, quiet ride.


Worst Features

Needs automatic headlights, power windows that don't creak and a transmission that is a bit smoother.

Review

I bought this car used with 34,000 miles. Car was making small rattle noise with engine, dealership said was normal for this car. I trusted them & didn't buy extended warranty (bad experience in past). Thought it would last many miles before any problems. Two months later at 38,000 miles the transmission went out; stayed in shop for over a month and cost $2600.00 to rebuild. So if you hear noise check it out, don't trust dealership.


Best Features

Exterior.


Worst Features

Better transmission.

2004 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

First off, this is our 3rd Taurus. All 3 have had no problems at all. You cannot beat this car for the money, reliability, features, safety, and comfort. This is a well made and safe car. Even after 2, we had tested out a new Camry and Altima. Once in the Taurus again it was just a better fit with a less "tinny" feel overall. Just being hit in this car down the whole driver's side without a scratch makes you appreciate the safety and the way the car held up. People can say what they want but this is a very good looking American car you can trust. We are on our 3rd for a reason. I guess the next car will be a Fusion or a Five Hundred.


Best Features

Console shifter between the bucket seats, Sunroof, style, ride, price, safety and reliability.


Worst Features

Could have had more horsepower, but the mileage is very good just the same.

Sorry I tried to save a few thousand by buying an American car. After 20 months and 37,000 miles I am faced with replacing the a/c compressor which was used for 1 season only! The cost $750.00+. Very poor quality overall .


Best Features

NONE.


Worst Features

Discontinue the model.
