1994 Ford Taurus SHO 3.0 HO from North America
Great car for whatever you throw at it
Some minor electric problems occurred, and some suspension work was needed.
Motor mount was also bad.
I was extremely pleased with the SHO; it was very smooth on expressway speeds, and responsive around town driving.
The clutch was fairly heavy compared to other cars, but I didn't mind it.
The disc brakes were responsive and stopped the car well.
The seats and driving position were spot on.
The ride was stiff.
The HVAC system was excellent.
The room inside was typical Taurus, meaning excellent.
The audio system was good.
The steering was good for a FF car.
The reliability was excellent; it gets from where you want or need to go.
The fuel economy was decent.
Servicing the car yourself can be a challenge, but most stuff you can do on your own. Oil changes, filters etc.; most of everything was within easy reach.
The Yamaha SHO V6 was very responsive and doesn't lack any power; usually can go up to 300k miles with your normal maintenance and fluid changes.
No warning lights occurred; the car didn't run hot at all.
I was very satisfied!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
