2003 Ford Taurus Se Wagon Reveiw —

Performance: I was expecting more from the 3 litter V6. It only has 155 HP and 185LB of torque. it dose sound really good though. It gets around 23MPG usually but i live in a vary hilly place. Its even gone up to 28 on the highway before. It is desen't on the way to 60 with a time of around 9 sec, but after that it slows way down. The wagon is electrically limited to a top speed of 111MPH (because of the tiers) but if you remove the limiter your looking at speeds of up to around 128. There are alot of horror story's about Taurus transmissions but the 2003 model year had a great rating. The steering is VARY light and had almost no feel to it. The brakes are vary stiff but has excellent ABS. it holds the road well for being a 2 ton monster that is more than 16 feet long, and unlike most fords this has interdependent rear suspension. Build Quality: The only things that have gone wrong with this particular Taurus is that the starter went bad and the "water tight seal" on the driver side door had to be replaced a few times. No major mechanical problems have happend so far with this car....Knock on wood. Appearance: Interior: this is the middle of the range SE Wagon. the interior is kind of bland and the dash is a mess of different color panels. The cloth seats are vary comfortable for long trips but the 3rd row trunk seats are only good for short trips. Exterior: I really like the styling for the 2000-2003 models. It is a vary good looking car from the outside, as long as you don't get it in black or red. with roof racks as stranded it is vary good for road trips. Cost of Ownership: Parts are usually cheep for the Taurus and they are fairly easy to fix. I have gotten up to 28 MPG with the Taurus, but usually get around 21. Fun Factor: With a great sounding engine and independent suspension it is a fun car to drive. be careful for wheel spin when its wet though. Connor Pence

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: holds 8 people with the optinal trunk seats

Cons: back drop down alot fully loaded and steering is vary light

Its A Safe Vehicle, And You Can Still Fill The Tank W/o Going Broke:) — It is a great vehicle for young adults. You can drive over 500 miles on a tank of gas (hwy miles) I did this in the Summer of 2006. There is one down fall: the oil filter is right above the starter, and the starter gets saturated with oil, when changing the oil... (Poor design on Ford's part) but over all, it is a vey sound car.

Pros: See above

Cons: 20 mpg in city, but I do have a "lead foot..."

Powerfull Wagon — pleanty of horsepower and exelent torque, handeling is a little heavy, would be alot more fun if it had a five-speed manual transmission, there isnt much to do in the way upgrading, sounds nice with a cherry bomb muffler, so fun to drive but easy to fall asleep behind the wheel since the ride is so comfortable

Pros: acceleration, fuel millage

Cons: bad in winter

Ford Taurus Se — This is a good car. Great gas mileage. i have 75,000 miles and i've only had to fix a few things for as long as i have it. with the price of gas right now it costs about 70 dollars to fill up which isn't that bad with the gas it gets. It is a very comfy ride i did a four hour drive two weeks ago and it was a very comfy drive felt like i was on the couch. Its a good car and i love the thing. As much of an old man car it is it does its job and.... I can't be mad at at it

Pros: gas mileage, comfy ride, not that much repair work needed

Cons: none that i know of

I Love This Car. I Call Her Bianca — I travel back & forth from Chicago 2 Detroit and she rides very well on the road. Very smooth. The only thing is that it drinks a lot of gas. I ran over a median recently so she is kind of sick rite now (lol) I bent all of the rims & needed new tires & I took it to these guys I truested & since then she doesn't accelrate the same so I'm going 2 take her to a ford dealership.

Pros: Good traveling car, roomy, cruise control, moon roof

Cons: Drinks a lot of gas, body can be dented easily

Gets Me Where I Want To Go — Minor problems associated with normal wear and tear. For the most part it's a solid vehicle, but I'd prefer something made by a foreign car company. Interior holds up well.

Pros: Solid vehicle.

Cons: Takes about $50 to fill the tank.

Good For A Cheap Newer Sedan — Its a Ford. Other than that, it handles well, has reasonable reliability, and although the paint isn't great, the body seems good.

Pros: Newer

Cons: alternator and power supply can't handle much, has squeaks randomly
