1993 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 from North America
A nicely styled family mover
Four years ago the air conditioner compressor failed. I retro-fitted the car to R-134A refrigerant. The technician flushed the system and replaced the compressor. It has worked very well.
I replaced the transmission fluid at 75000 miles. I waited too long. The transmission shift characteristics were erratic for about a week afterward, then straightened out.
It has had more than its fair share of replacement alternators, three in all.
This has been a very reliable and comfortable vehicle.
When we purchased it there were 5 of my family living at home. This station wagon did not have the third seat. I installed a third seat from a salvage vehicle. It has served us well.
Gas mileage and power are both adequate.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
