Love My Taurus Wagon — 1998 Ford Taurus wagon has been very good to me. Last 3 cars have been Taurus and this the first wagon. Cargo area is great with lots of space and extra seating if needed. Travel about 60 Miles a day expressway miles so pretty good on gas about 23 highway per gallon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Station wagons are really the first utility vehicles without the bulkiness of a truck and have the comfort of a sedan.

Cons: no real cons

Becides Tha Tranny, Its A Great Car — this car is a BEAST on the road, a straight sleeper, this thing pulls very hard, from any speed, obviously the transmission is a very week point, but other than that, its a boss, its big, but not too big. overall, a nice car

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

Pros: Duartec 3.0

Cons: Tranny

Fun To Own If You Like To Tinker And Like To Drive Something Rare And Different. —

This is a high performance car that uses the Generation 4 Taurus as a platform for some pretty cool componets. It has a 3.4 litre V8 comprised of an alumnium top end built by Yamaha mated to a block developed by Cosworth. When properly cared for it is a silky smooth motor that will freely rev to 7000 rpm. The suspension is nothing like a regular G4 Taurus. It also has larger front disks and rear disks (standard Taurus has drum brakes). The engine makes it the consumate Interstate hauler, also at home on the twists. The build quality otherwise is all late 20c Ford, which is to say substandard. It is nowhere near the build quality of our 2001 Camry. As a result, at 12 years old, the cheap interior parts as well some exterior parts have needed to be replaced. Thus the junkyard is your friend. There are many Taurii in my local junkyard, and I seem to be there most everymonth for some lil nickel and dime part. But I love tinkering with it. As for fun factor, the car is a blast to drive. It is a sleeper car so it is fun to leave rice rockets and other perf cars behind at the stoplight. The other car starts to inch up and you just press the throttle and tease them. As a measure, it is just a bit slower than a 4.6 litre Mustang GT. But you can carry 5 in comfort while doing it as the Taurus has an enormous interior. The best way to describe its twistability is that you'll find yourself on a twisty road with 30 mph speed limit driving with no strain. Then you look at the speedo and you are in fact doing 55. The car simply hates to go less than 50 mile an hour. It is really at home doing 85 on the interstate. I have had the car up to 120 mph for a 20 minute stretch and it was stable and comfortable, not strained at all. The top speed of the vehicle is supposed to e 140mph. I havent done that yet.... Milage: 21 city (keep off the gas) and 28 hwy.

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

Pros: A blast to drive.  Fast and tight handler.  A rare convo starter.

Cons: It's a late 20c Ford product built by the substandard members of the UAW

Great Affordable Family Mover — This car had the 24V 200 HP V6 which, at the time, was a fairly hot engine - especially for a family car like the Taurus wagon. This vehicle was an excellent family hauler and was very comfortable to drive. Could even get the front wheels to burn a little rubber off the line! Pretty tame styling and fairly bland, but very comfortable, interior. Lots of room to haul "stuff". No problems with the car in over 80,000 km. Very dependable - no squeaks or rattles.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tons of room - and comfortable

Cons: Not a sports, or performance, car

Good Car For The Money — Good power, excellent handling, roomy. Very dependable for an affordable daily driver. Mileage is fair, overall quality is typical for american cars of its day. Can be suprising on open roads, is faster than it looks. Oval body lines are a love it or leave it thing, you either like it or not.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy & comfortable sporty car for little money

Cons: transmissions are prone to failure

Get Me A New One! — My car is always in the shop! It has so much wrong with it, besides the fact that it was made and manufactured by Ford. Haha. The built quality is okay, but could be better. Not a fun car to own, pay for, or drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Don't drive it.

Cons: It always has something wrong with it.
