    Why Detroit Is In Trouble — I did not know it was possible to build such a steaming turd. Highly unreliable, and unable to be repaired by the home mechanic. It can't get out of it's own way and won't go in the snow. I've had to replace the steering rack at under 70K and can't fix the brakes myself. I hate this car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It got good milage before I started running the crap out of it

    Cons: If you can think of anything about a car, in this case it's probably bad

    Ford Taurus — It has dents on both doors on one side of the car. The back door can only open from the inside not the outside. But i like how it is fairly quick to response. I dont like how big it is, im ready to downsize. The car is not fun to drive, maybe for family people but not for teens. The only things it has been taken in for were for cosemitic reasons. The two interior panels on both passenger sides have been torn off. It has over ninety six thousand miles on it and the gpa that it gets is around 26 miles per gallon

    Pros: Quick Response

    Cons: Money

    Great Car Fro The Money — Owned this car about 4years - 2nd owner. I define the 2002 Ford Taurus as middle class luxury and a middle class price. It's a great car for the money. My Taurus has a few nice options like CD changer, moon roof, auto-on/off courtesy lights, driver's adjustable foot pedals, and the 24valve DOHC 3.0L Duratec V6 engine. One nice thing about the Taurus is that due to it's commonality on the streets you can easily find salvage parts if needed. Took advantage of this a couple of times when someone ran it over curbs and broke the wheels - easy to find in salvage yards Performance is good enough for a mid size sedan. Enough power to get onto freeways and pass with ease. Suspension works fine for moderately aggressive driving. Body and build quality seems good and the car does not rattle or squeak at 140Kmi. Repair problems and been acceptable up to around 120Kmi - Replaced three ignition coils at 80Kmi. Replaced A/C compressor at 90Kmi. Replaced water pump at 100kmi. 130Kmi - A/C evaporator sprang a small leak ; an expensive repair that requires removing the dashboard to get to the evaporator. Driver's seat leather developed some deterioration and tears.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: comfortable, roomy, nice car for the money, paint and finish still shiny at 140Kmi.

    Cons: some engine parts and repairs are expensive.

    Reliable, Safe, And Comfortable. The Pros Outweigh The Cons — The Performance is average. Its not really made to race, its more of a family car. The build quality is great, everything works and is still running strong with only minor repairs. I love the appearance, its a very unique shape and very safe design. The gas mileage is good for a heavy 6 cylinder sedan, the maintenance is very regular. This car is not fun at all to drive. Its a cruiser, its made to get places comfortably not quickly.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable, Safe, and Reliable

    Cons: Not fun unless you get the stronger engine

    Taurus — great for accelerating and braking. no problems handling just during the winter. my check engine light comes on and broken visor clip that the dealership said they would fix but "couldn't find the part." i like the white and black exterior look and gray tones interior. cheap car w/ a 15 gal tank. i love having a bigger car... LESS HEADACHES ON LONG ROAD TRIPS!!

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

    Pros: the color combo

    Cons: a broken visor clip that the dealership never fixed cuz he "couldn't find the part"

    2002 Ford Taurus Sel — good engine if you get the duratec, other than that not much of a car. The emissions will tear a hold in your pocket, the check engine light comes on all the time, the rear suspension is known to give out

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 24 valve V6

    Cons: stupid emiision crap
