Used 2005 Ford Taurus Consumer Reviews
My Taurus has been an absolute nightmare. It has had problems with transmission (torque converter), the master cylinder, power steering, crusie control, ac, and multiple cylinder misfires. And the cherry on top of the crap cake: it only has 88,000 miles on it. Never buy this car if you value your money, time, and sanity.
i bought this car in 2005 at time had 22,000 on it. At 61,000 the transmission went out on it to the cost of $2,000. The mpg is horrible. I got oil changed every 3,000 and took good care of this car. it is the worst thing i have ever owned.
Within the last six months, the paint on my hood is literally dissolving away to bare metal. The vehicle drinks gas, the floor board leaks water into the car when it rains, the carpeting is terrible and the transmission is going out. This is probably the worse vehicle I have ever owned. I'll never buy another Ford again!
Transmission replaced at 26,000. New Ball joints at 30,000, brakes repaired twice, electrical problem with transmission, all repaired under warranty. Ford dealership that did the work was really good. If I buy a Ford again it will be because of the dealership. Car appears ok now, bought it used with 10,000 miles on it so it may have had rough use. Car is a little noisy on the highway, rear side visibility somewhat restricted. Car air and heat work good. Mileage about 27 to 30 on highway.
great car, really a good by for that model car,i work a manheim auto auction and the taurus is the best car for that price range, no other car i drive is even close to its performanc eand drive ability
