One super wagon
By John Schroeder on


2004 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I bought this certified program car 10 months after manufacture with 8,750 miles for $7,300 less than the Ford dealer paid for it. After 4,600 miles & 3 trips it has run perfectly with not even one little defect & no rattles. It averages about 20 mpg overall even with the super AC & a lot of idling. Very practical for me with all that cargo space, roof rack & 5 cup holders! I see nothing on the road I would trade it for, even though the basic design dates back to the 1996 model year. They sure got it perfected for 2004, & it's a shame it's being discontinued. May be a classic like the 1971 Torino wagon I bought in 1981 & sold for 33% more to buy this one. However,the Torino had a larger 4'x8' cargo space.

Best Features

5 cup holders, 2-12v outlets, great lighting in & out, great dash display.

Worst Features

Miss not having a keyhole on the passenger side. Need a glove compartment light. I am putting one in myself! Keep building it!
