1986 Ford Taurus 3.0 V6 Vulcan from North America
Ugly, with a nice interior and several issues
Brakes went out.
Electrical system failed.
Alternator went out.
Power steering pump went out.
Fuel injection went out.
Dash lights go out frequently.
The car hasn't been driven in almost 10 years, and was in really good condition when I got it. I have barely driven it 75 miles, and it is already starting to fall apart. It has sat dead in the driveway for the majority of the time I've had it.
It is fairly comfortable on the inside, and the air conditioning and heater have worked great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

There must be a bunch of cold contacts, possibly because of corrosion. You could hunt it down by unplugging and reconnecting all wiring harnesses under the hood. That alone could remove enough oxidation to get the juice flowing again. Then check all grounding straps, unbolt them for a good cleaning. Finally, learn how to measure voltage drops.
