It's A Great Starter Car, But A Newer Model Would Be Better — It's a good car until you get over 100,000 miles on it! I've got 186,000 miles on it already and I've had it since 05 when it had 70,000 and I've had 3 transmissions put in it, my sparks plugs keep goin out and overall IT SUCKS!! I know the older a car the more work that needs to be done, but seriously I had a transmission put in it after 2 yrs of having it!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: family car and for work

Cons: good gas mileage, but it's w/e

1997 Ford Taurus — Well it is a great family car that gets relatively good gas mileage but it has the turning radius of a whale. It has a ver spacious interior with great air conditioning. I gotta say this thing is durable its been wrecked 3 times and a tree bent it in half and its still running.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas mileage, durability, space.

Cons: Styling, steering, and free wheeling trans.

Shoguns! — Nice sounding V8, honestly sounds better than most mustangs....Performance not bad for a 1997...gas mi is 15-19mpg. Parts can be expensive to replace.....fun factor is a 7-10 for me at least..motor should easily be able to hit 300K

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Exhaust Note

Cons: Rattles like a Ford

Too Many Problems — I hate this car all it is, is problems, problems, etc. I need a reliable car for my kids and I. I would love to have a car that is light green or light blue, not white, not black, silver, red ever again. Is this car fun to drive, no way! It needs so much work and it keeps dying on the road, noisy

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: To get to work, for family and places to go

Cons: I hate Fords

My Car — performance - it is a family sedan, for a 12 year old car it does ok. I wouldn't expect it to do any more. it is a step up from my previous car. build quality - the dash is pulling up. the front bumper has some funny blisters appearance - it looks like an egg cost of ownership - it is getting around 20mpg and I have had to spend $3500 in the first 3 years I have owned it. fun factor - only if there were 3 strippers in there would it be fun.

Pros: that it is paid for

Cons: the engine and transmission

My 1997 Ford Taurus — this car is not by any means a sports car. not a whole lot of get up and go but it gets me by and serves its purpose for the time being. it is extremely reliable. ive owned it about 11 months now and put 30,000 kms on top of the 216,000 already on it. it will do the quarter mile in bout 18 seconds flat as it sits now. picked up the car for bout $600 and it has been great to me. i would recommend it to anyone as a daily driver family car. i plan on making it my winter beater for when i park my summer car. i'll run it till it dies.

Pros: Amazing Reliability

Cons: Gas Guzzler

My Current Car — Here is a photo of my current car. This is the 5th SHO I've owned. The 2nd GEN II. I still have the other GEN II and I'm parting it out. These cars are fun to drive and will surprise you.

Pros: V-8 Runble, Loaded with options, Leather, MOONROOF

Cons: Slow off the line, 20MPG

Great Car For The Money — It's a great car and has served its purpose. We've got almost 200,000 miles on it so it has been used and abused. It is okay to drive, although it needs a tune-up desperately. We had to have the transmition rebuilt in 2005 and almost everything the belt touches has been replaced, but it's paid for so there's no sense on getting rid of it yet.

Pros: It was built to last.  We have almost 200,000 miles on ours

Cons: performance is lagging, but that is due to a desperate need for a tune-up.
