Pros

Love the size, look, and feel

Cons

One thing goes wrong it takes fixing 6 parts before you finally figure out its the cheapest fix but you already spent more than you should have.

Cool Car With A Good Sound — I never thought I would own a Ford.., much less a Taurus. I love my car but the people that had it before me didn't take care of it. I'm not saying that the whole life of the car and the other previous owners didn't take care of it but the second to last owner had it for 18 days..., let me repeat.., 18 DAYS and they didn't want it so they reposed it.., I am stuck now with it making weird noises and a huge vacuum leak that seems next to impossible to find or fix.

Pros

Ride, looks, comfort, speed, when you hit the gas it sounds a little deep almost like a mustang but without all the noise & power

Cons

miscellaneous noises from engine turn out to be different problems, dodgy cheap parts are a temporary fix, Can't put in a GPS touchscreen radio because of the A/C controls, car is longer than my mom's van and my bf's jeep, steering wheel is a little oddly shaped, transmission is a little clunky at times,  High beams and low beams totally suck, & the sun shades used to block the sun out of the car's windshield doesn't fit at all.., not even the standard or jumbo so you have to order a custom one online.

It Is A Lot Better Than My Last Car But Still Would Love To See A New Motor Put In It. — I love the size, ride, and look of the car but it needs to be overhauled as it's got 123,465 miles on it and I just bought it with 118,000 miles on it, I thought I fixed the problems with the motor but then something else pops up.

My Ford Tank! — This car has happily provided reliability and safety for my family for since 2004. I bought it used and has been a tank so far. Regular maintenance issues, nothing irregular, I wish the new models where more like this...might have to buy another one!

2001 Ford Taurus Sel — Family transportation vehicle. A very good car for commuting and comfortable for travelling. The options package was excellent for the time when it was new, but the cd changer being built into the center console limited its storage. Traded in for the Mountaineer.

utility

not a performance car

Works! — Wife's car. It fills the bill. It has all the features needed and being rather lightly used was an exceptional deal. Easy to work on; plenty of parts available, everywhere. Cost of ownership is low; mechanically it is great - not a performance car but very dependable.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Good Daily Driver, But Not Much For Excitement. — Acceleration is a little lacking, but it's very consistent. At low RPM is worst, but not by much. Handles smoothly, but not sharply. Ride is bumpy. Breaks are surprisingly good, really shine in hard breaking. Has 88,000 miles, no repairs in the year I've owned it. Doesn't look great from the outside, but inside design is simple, efficient, and attractive. Gas mileage is around 24 mpg combined. Only maintenance has been regular oil changes. Easy to drive, but not fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

I love the comfortable seats and that great little pushrod Vulcan motor!

Cons

Rear drum brakes...really??

It Was A Good Car For Many Years! If You Buy One, Make Sure You Know How It's Been Maintained — It was a really nice car. Far more fun to drive than, for instance, a Camry. It had the pushrod 3.0L V6 which felt kind of like a little diesel...low-end grunt, no problem getting out of it's own way but not a lot of top-end. Sure, I put more money into it over the years than I would have liked, but that's partly because I refused to let anything be less than new, operationally... I will miss My White Bull!

Great, Powerful Sedan! — The car has great acceleration and feels powerful. Last time we took it to Midas, they said everything was perfect except the Power Steering Fluid needs to be flushed. The interior looks nice, and exterior is nice and pretty sleek. MPG is pretty good, 27 MPG highway. Not much maintenance done on it. It is fun to drive cause it packs a good punch when accelerating.

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