    I Love It, He's Old And Getting Expensive But Still My Car! — Overall I love the car, it's old yes but at the same time it has a timeless, station wagon quality about it. The Ford Company doesn't make Taurus wagons anymore which is too bad! The vehicle is fun to drive and pretty quick for a car of it's size. The maintenance costs are getting to be a pain in the neck though, so I am saving up for another car. ***UPDATE**** Rust hole has appeared in my fender which I am trying to get repaired before the next snowstorm up in my area. Driver side inner and outer tie rod ends and tie rod replaced. Car is sucking up oil. Time for a new one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun 210 hp Duratec DOHC engine :-D

    Cons: It's a wagon...need I saw more? haha

    Won't Let You Down — The 3 liter pushrod Vulcan isn't super fast.. But it is a VERY strong engine with a nice sound. The trannys suck though.. Gets 25-29 mpg hwy (i have yet to break 30) and 18-23 city. Great car for hauling buddies around! haha

    I Love This Car! By dkupers68

    Fantastic car that will do almost anything you want it to. It's capable on dry pavement, but doesn't shy away from wet and snowy roads with its AWD. No buttons, just get in and go. If I had to buy ... Read More
