Pros

Handles long-distance trips better than short-distance or in-town trips. Interior in good shape and clean.

Cons

Transmission slips frequently when accelerating from a dead stop so stops and starts can be tedious for driver and people behind. Need plenty of time to enter highway/freeway to accelerate slowly or trans thunks.

Great Car For Family Or Older Couple Who Like To Drive Leisurely. — Unable to accelerate quickly (or "punch it") without transmission slamming into gear. Engine smells like burning oil every time after use. Issues with losing power when using heater/defrost/vent so hard to drive during cold weather when front defrost is required.

Pros

This car is not expensive and is worth buying if you can find a bargain.

Cons

I have nothing bad to say about this car.

I Am Glad I Own This Car. — This car drives nicely. I have owned it over a year, and it hasn't needed any repairs. The car's appearance is quite easy on the eyes although I wouldn't have colored it white. The car is durable, fast(has a v6), and can outrace most other vehicles in my city. With gas being near $3 a gallon, it usually takes $40 to fill up the tank. I haven't needed to take it in for repairs since I bought the car besides an oil change regularly. Overall this car handles nicely and gets the job done. Unfortunately since I live in South Dakota I won't be able to drive very fast thanks to all the senoir citizens.

Overall A Decent Car — I am fairly impressed with the car, I have had some problems with mine, but I bought it second hand and I am not sure how many of the problems were from that. I have had to replace the rack and pinion at 97,000 but that is about the only real problem I have had with it.

Pros

Good in the snow, had a lot of room

Cons

Plagued with problems

75

99 Ford Taurus — 3.0L V6. Performance overall was not bad. It could move and was good in the snow. It needed a whole slew of repairs. The one head gasket went and it was in the shop for a month (although I feel the mechanic was also a dunce). Developed a power steering after about three years of owning it (bought in 05) and was never able to get it fixed correctly. The air conditioning and especially heat worked when they wanted to. Heat took nearly 20 minutes to get warm. Had the core drained and repaired numerous times to no avail. With all the problems it gave me, I put more money into repairs then I initially paid for it. Gas mileage was around 20 city and 26 highway. It wasn't that great of a car. I only got it because I needed a car and it seemed in relatively decent shape but needed almost $1000 in repairs to get it to pass inspection.

Mundane — It looks like a jellybean but is more comfortable and socially acceptable than any other of my fleet of oddball modes of transport, half of which aren't even choices on this site. the reliability is awesome but it's just not Me

Everyone Should By A Taurus And Then Ford Would Go Bancrupt Too! — My Taurus rocks. It currently has 452,000 km's and the engine and body are still humming down the road. Appart from some rust that has started around the wheel wells, the only thing people see when I pass is a blue blur.

Pros

Reliable, good on gas, great ride

Cons

Not for infrequent drivers

Overall A Great, Reliable Car! I Recommend It For Those Who Need A Car For School/work/family. — This car is very comfortable to drive. She is smooth, runs smoothly, and is reliable. The thing I don't like is sometimes if you disconnect the battery then it forgets and relearns and it'll lurch badly when going from lowest gear to next up. But it corrects easily after awhile. I also don't drive it enough so I kinda lose battery power every 2 - 3 months. (She has a new alternator). She looks nice, and the curved look is areodynamic. She's also really good on gas too! The brakes do squeel when stepped on but the mechanic said they'll do that but nothing's wrong with the brakes. All in all, even with the little things aside, I still love my car! And the stock radio with bass boost really has great quality sound!

Pros

Decent Gas Mileage, Roomy Interior, Strong Engine

Cons

Frequent Repairs, Poor Interior Quality

85

1999 Ford Taurus — Performance - Was pretty much average. The V6 pulled strong and got decent gas mileage. Build Quality - One of the reasons the Big Three are in so much trouble today was because of poor build qualtiy and the Taurus was no exception. Appearance - Could be better styled in my opinion but O.K overall Cost of Ownership - As mentioned above.....could have been a lot better.

The horse power.

Cons

Nothing

. — It's a pretty good car considering I bought it used. It is tough and reliable. Have only had minor problems. But, it was to be expected from an older vehicle. I would only get rid of it if I could buy a new one.
