Pros

Quick

Cons

Charging system problems.

65

Good — Performance is good for it being 15 years old. Minor problems. (Charging system, burns off coolant.) Not bad appearance. (Ding in the left fender, faded paint.) Gas Guzzler. (Probably gets 15 mpg if I'm lucky.) It's a fun car, power everything and a quick 220hp.

Pros

Long lasting

Cons

Gas millage

25

Good Car — As far as performance, it has very little. It is only a 3.0L V6 engine with not a lot of get up and go. It is a rally good car. I has close to 200,000 miles and the only major work that I had to do to it was rebuild the transmission. Any other work I have done on it was regular maintenance. The gas millage lacks a little to be desired. It is a family sedan, so does not score high on the fun factor.

Cons

Too old

My Whip — Its body is strong overall. Nothing like cars these days. Slow acceleration. Good during slippery road conditions. I own this car. Ok apperance. Roomy inside. I have fun driving this car especially driving in the country side. Low on insurance. About $40 to fill up the tank. Good on maintenance.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons

Bad in execution

Great Idea, And Many Other Seem To Like It. I Tried To Make It More Than It Could Deliver. — Was good for a family, but not a big fan. I would have gotten the wagon, but it really looked worse. I needed something with some towing power and this 4 liter engine seemed to be the best bet for economy and power. Unfortunately the tranny didn't handle this mix well. I tried to get rid of it, but I couldn't find a buyer. I'm donating it to charity.

if modded right, it can be fun.

Cons

ATX transmission after 100K miles. manuals last forever.

Best Car To Get For A Starter Car. — I have found this car to be more of a sporty car than a grocery getter. Performance wise, i modded it to have 150-160 horsepower, over the 140 it has stock. as far as build quality, the onlt things i have had to replace the starter, water pump and belt thus far. NO major repairs cropping up. apperance, no body kits are made for it, although the SHO is really the only Sporty taurus available factory. more can be found out at www.taurusowners.com.

Surprising kids in their little foreign cars and kicking their butts.   LOL

Cons

Hard to find second hand parts for this rare machine.

Four Door Grocery Getter Designed To Avoid The Police While Kicking Butt Against The Import Crowd. — The SHO combined all the luxuries available at the time with far above average power and handling performance. A joy to drive and a reliable ride. I've had mine since 1997 and the odometer currently sits around 270,000 KM

If you absolutely have to

Cons

Transmissions are notorious for being shitty

85

Don't Get One — The one I had must have had leprosy because there was ALWAYS something breaking. It wasn't very fast, it didn't get great gas mileage, and it wasn't like it was a good looking car. It was in good condition, but the car itself is just butt-ugly.

Pros

Sound System, Dual Exhuast

Cons

15 Years Old, Has Some Problems

65

Sho — It's a quick car. Brakes are good. Handles good. It needed a new upper radiator hose. It burns off coolant so I have to refil the reserve tankl like every 3 weeks. Charging system isn't the best. Exterior is nice but has some faded paint and a ding in it. I like the dual exhaust and the spoiler. Interior isn't that great, very worn. Power everything and sound system is nice. Gas mileage (city) is horrible, but got very good mileage on I95. It's a fun first car and proud to own one because you don't see many SHO's around.

Pros

I like everything except the gas mileage now.

Cons

When you change the spark plugs you'll lose power and gas mileage and get a starting/sputtering in the high rpms problems...

Still Love Her Even Though She's Broke. — Pretty good car until you change the spark plugs, then everything goes awry. Lol but all in all she's been a good car. Had good gas mileage for a 3.8, good power, comfy seats, big trunk. tinted the windows and ripped the cats and muffler off so she's pretty pimp ;)
