Pros

it's a solid reliable car and gets 34 m/g

Cons

the Ford Taurus could have came with on optional high performance engine, suspension, and transmission.

A Nice Looking Car — The Ford Taurus is an engineering marvel that changed the shape in automotive history which made the car stylish and intriguing. the reliability good, power could be improved with a more powerful engine and stronger trans. the suspension could be tougher, and the car could have been designed with sports car enthusiasm in mind. for the most part, my Ford Taurus is another mid sized sedan used for every day use and tends to be very reliable, but Ford could have done so much more to appeal to every market to make this car astronomical besides just economical.

Cons

Storage

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.

Pros

utility

Cons

not a performance car

55

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.)

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.

Good Value — Great car overall. Roomy, was reasonable for our family of 5 for over 2 years until we got our minivan. Still use it now as my transportation to work, and it's perfect for that as well. Comfortable transportation, even though AC just quit.

great mileage

Cons

no air and gas gage doesnt work

My Old Ford Taurus — My car is old. The air conditioner doesnt work and neither does the gas gage. It does get 25 miles to the gallon, and is a very comfortable and dependable car. It starts right up in the coldest winter mornings. But, I am so ready for a new car! Hopefully, next summer I will get a Ford Edge!

Average Car With Above Average Value — fun to drive, in my opinion, and looks awesome when its washed up and all. pretty cheap to own too, needs repairs every now and then, but what car doesn't... but still great to drive! i enjoy it a lot
