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 ;)

Transmissions are notorious for being shitty

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.

I Kinda Miss It, It Was A Great Car That Got Mid 20's For Mpg. Just Plain Awesome — Performance- It accelerated relatively slow with the automatic but after 4k RPM it really comes to life. Handling is very sharp for a 4 door car, brakes were good but not great. Build Quality- The taurus platform was built like crap, the interior was comfy but needed better looks. The rear window motors needed rebuilt (because nobody uses them) the sunroof motor needed replaced. They rust like CRAZY!!! but... the engine makes up for its downfalls. Appearance- Its a good looking car that doesn't look fast. it makes a good sleeper for anyone that doesn't know what a SHO is. Cost of ownership- The car didn't cost me much, gaskets for it are somewhat expensive. I put in a new timing belt, crank sensor, rebuilt power steering pump, DIS module, and CCRM module. Luckily it was easy to work on.

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

Very Good Family Car That Can Be Taken And Drag Raced On The Weekends And Still Win — very fast car for being a taurus decent on gas for having 250hp parts tend to be expensive and hard to find very quick stops very well too sound system very good from factory lots of upgrades can be made with just junkyard parts is the best part

Yamaha SHO engine

Fun And Rare. — What a good idea it was to put a Yamaha SHO motor in a Taurus. It really woke up the car to what it should be. Different headlights, bumpers, side skirts, the regular Taurus really looks bad. Yes cost of ownership is a bit high, and motor parts are expensive and sometimes rare to find, but it is a blast to drive, especially when the secondaries kick in!

Acceleration, Pick Up, and Speed.

Not the best MPG's.

It Is Definitly Worth Driving! — It has really good acceleration and speed. It is also somewhat of an older luxurious car. The gas mileage is about 25 highway. There are not a lot of them around here anymore. Some people might mistake it for a regular ford taurus around 1994. Really stylish!

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.

If You Can Afford The Upkeep, Fun To Drive — Performance-for its time period it was a fast sedan that could keep up with the best of them Build Quality-the engine needed special repairs that had to be done by a qualified mechanic Appearance-good looking car at the time Cost of Ownership-o.k. gas mileage, but the upkeep was spendy Fun Factor-awesome car to drive, sleeper

Sho Spd — Well mine has a manual transmission, pretty fast with a 6.6 0-60. has 4 wheel disk brakes. thas digital climate control, all leather interior. The YAMAHA engines are the best. bullet proof. gets about 24 MPG Highway. about 20 in the city. they do break down on occasion, and parts are a bit pricy. I love the look of the gen. 2.

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.
