1994 Ford Taurus GL 3.2 from North America
The Taurus is like a beautiful women, looks great but high maintenance!
I have had my water pump replaced 4 times. The last two times the part was covered by replacement warranty but labor was not.
I have had problems with the lights going out and the car losing power. Three times into the dealer to get it fixed. Finally did, then about 6 or 7 months later Ford did a recall on the part that was replaced, I have still not received reimbursement for the money I shelled out.
Serpentine belt has been replaced twice and there have been numerous small things. All in all I would say I have spent around $6000.00 keeping this car going. I think I'll buy a Honda next.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

If you think a Ford Taurus is a pain try owning a Tracer! Words alone cannot express the absolute hell I went through when I bought mine brand spanking new in 1990. That car was in the shop every other week with something always going out.
The best thing that ever happened was when I got run off the road and totaled the thing into a tree. All in all, Ford truly sucks.
