1992 Ford Taurus ES 3.0 Litre V6 from North America
A perfect car for a new teen driver
Rear drum brakes at around 125,000.
Radiator leaks at 131,000 miles.
Original transmission and everything else.
Both back door locks don't work, it is just a motor problem and we can still lock the doors manually.
Front head lights wouldn't work sometimes.
This is a nicely put together car. I am 16 and my parents gave it to me.
Not much has gone wrong with it and the space it has holds enough of my friends that I don't complain about driving a family car.
The V6 gives it enough power for my liking, even though I know it is a family car and it isn't as cool as a sports car doing 100mph (it does get up that high though).
Never needed trunk space for much of anything except football gear, but it holds up fine.
My parents almost bought me a Probe, said I drove too recklessly in it when I test drove it, but the Taurus isn't so bad.
The gas mileage is good and easy on my budget, along with the rock bottom insurance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had a '92 SHO with the Yamaha v-tech motor and my god that thing moved like a bat out of hell, but it cost too much to fix it. Maybe if I put some turbos on it with some NOS, then it would be worth it. But if you see one buy it, it's worth it trust me.

I have a 92 SHO, and I'll say for a family car they do hall some ass, but I've had the worst luck with the MTX transmission. And to replace them does cost a lot if you replace 3 in 1 Year. Whats their to do to fix it?
