Get Rid Of Transmission — They all have transmission problems but over all if they did not have this problem this car would be great for the kids as it has a rear fold down seat so the kids or pets could look out the back window.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good on gas

Cons: transmission problems all of them

The Car Is A Classic And Their Not Many 1996 Sho On The Market. — The Ford Taurus SHO has great acceleration, braking power and a fun car to drive. This a durable car and I have not had to do many repairs. The car in my opinion does not handle as well as I would like.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is a great car to drive and it has great power.

Cons: Expensive to work on.

Great Car, Will Remember It For Life — This was our family car for the last 14 years, very reliable and has broken down only once due to battery failure. It cost very little to maintain and a good family car. The build quality, like many American Cars, very strong especially in both the chasis and door. However, it is a heavy vehicle and doesn't handle well. This car is powered by a 3.0 V6 DOHC engine, with around 160-170hps, very quiet on both city and highway traffic.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfy
Practical
Reliable

Cons: Heavy
Tanky, space consuming

My Custom Sho Wagon — I built this car from the ground up in 2 weeks. I stripped the wagon down to the bare shell, then swapped in everything from my 96 Smashed SHO sedan including full wiring harness and dash. Then I had one of 2 SHO wagons registered in America and Canada. Fun and awesome car that could hall around 7 people. This car rode like it was on rails with SARC struts on the front and H&R springs. It also had 17 x 8 Mille Miglia M11 rims with 245/45/17 rubber. It was a complete SHO in a wagon body so it was a total sleeper. This pic was from the All Ford show that it was entered in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of fun to drive

Cons: not much just a heavy car

Loved This Car Because It Was My First Experience To Be A Man — Loved the car. The feel, the color, the looks i recieved from it, how the car could pass most on the road even though many didnt want to take me on. I loved the sound system because it just engulfed me. Automatic temp was great. Just made me feel like a million bucks. Just ashame that it cost more money to repair than i made. Also the it took premium to fill and cost 45 to fill. That was when gas was cheap.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great sound system, chrome wheels, leather seats, sunroof, cd changer, v8

Cons: v8, gas, engine, transmission and any other problems that WILL arise

Stay Away. Looking Back, I'd Rather Walk Than Drive This Thing Again. — This is the kind of car that you purchase when you are a student, do not have money, and still haven't realized that station wagons are not exactly sexy in the U.S. The car had several problems from the engine to the exhaust system during the 2 years I had it, and had virtually no resale value when I could finally purchase a decent car again.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: None

Cons: Did you look at the car?
