Great Engine, Terrible Everything Else... — As a teen in the 90's, I fell in love with sports sedans (I don't know why). Saw the SHO brand-new as a kid and had to get one as soon as I finished college. I found a red, five-speed manual with about 70K on the odometer. I put another 72K on it and sold it to help defray the cost of an engagement ring. This car was fun. Great, great engine. Nice intake sounds, wonderful engine to look at. ***More to follow***

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

Pros: Yamaha-built DOHC 24V V-6. Just beautiful to look at and wring out.

Cons: Everything supplied by Ford, which was everything but the engine.

Different,and Cool — -stock performance was good,but the car really took to performance mods well,let that 3.0L breathe better really wakes it up! -the stock brakes leave alot to be desired,but the '96 SHO brake upgrade made a huge difference -it does rattle,but then again it is 18 years old -interior styling is a little dated in my opinion,so an upgrade is sorely needed,exterior styling is better ,and only differs slightly than the regular taurus,but helps in the whole sleeper vibe that the car eminates -not very costly to own one of these,if the car was taken care of,and you are able to handle the bulk of the repairs your self,or have a mechanic as a good friend(discount) -The car is loads of fun to drive...I love shocking people in "better" cars,and I also love it when people say "what kind of car is that",and "oh I didnt know that they made a stick shift taurus"

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fast,and roomy,makes all the right noises

Cons: motor parts can be expensive

Bad Ass And A Sleeper — this car is very quick with a beefed up 3.2L v6. a little sluggish in handling but it will make up for it in the straight away. the car came stock with a premium 7 speaker sound system that sounded amazing. leather interior and power everything including heated seats and sun roof. climate control and this car was very fun to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: waxes the little hondas out there in style

Cons: i dont know

Have Fun In It. These Days It's Likely To Be A Starter Car For A Punk Teen Like Myself — rides like a 35 year old mule. everything needs replacing except the door handles. usta be pretty slick, then 1994 ended. still gets 17+ mpg. constantly needs new brake lines and headlights. All in all, i've had fun in this car. it's a bit junky so i don't mind taking it for a spin in a cornfield...

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

Pros: cheap, cheap, cheap, thousands of em, parts everywhere.

Cons: POS

Awesome Tank! — It was a great car, the seats were comfortable. LOL. The car only had 85MPH on the speedometer so when it comes to being fast (it's not). There were some transmission problems but maybe the car just couldn't handle my crazy ass driving? Maybe it wasn't built for it? Who am I kidding of course it was made for crazy driving. It's a ford. LMAO!

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

Pros: Hard to wreck.

Cons: Slow.

A Crappy Engine From Ford — This car was a mistake on my part. The reason why is I opted for the 3.8 liter V-6 instead of the way more reliable 3.0 V-6. With the larger engine with this car gives you the same amount of horsepower, but with a substantial amount of more torque, that's about it. The negatives when you get this engine. Bad transmissions, head gaskets that need to be replaced about every 50,00 miles, bad motor mounts, pretty much getting the larger V-6 ruins the car. They only used the 3.8 V-6 from 1988 to 1995 in the Ford Taurus. Opt for the smaller 3.0 V-6.

Pros: Good torque....... thinking.

Cons: Mechanical, most major factory parts were intended to last only about 60,000 miles

I Love This Car, And I Hope It Never Dies!!!! — Screaming yamaha engine, 5spd manual, Police dont notice you, insurance and taxes are almost nothing. Although its rated at 220hp, and weighs 3300 lbs, you can still whoop a wrx, 9-3 viggen, 3 series bmw, Si civic, and just about any other ricer car or older mustang/camaro out there. did I mention 25-28 mpg hwy? Hope your a mechanic if you own one, as I am. maintenance is very expensive and pretty technical compared to other cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Hauls ass!!

Cons: Costly keep up
