1995 Ford Taurus Wagon 3.8 V-6 from North America
Blew the head gasket in 2001, repaired by a recall (installed new long block), this recall applies to all 3.8 motors of this year. Can we say bad motor, very bad motor? Hope the replacement motor incorporates the changes they incorporated in the later years.
Dealership damaged the alternator connector when replacing the motor (now held together with tie wrap as the dealership will not admit to breaking the connector's retaining clip).
Air conditioner hoses damaged by mice, cost of repair over $500. Bad mice, Bad.
Front windows don't always stay in their track when rolling up at 60 - 70 MPH, slow down to roll up window or reach over and help guide it.
Difficult in parking lots due to the body contours making it difficult to judge bumper locations.
I would have expected any mechanical problems to have been worked out of this car as it was the last year of this body style.
Good ride and handling.
Very comfortable on trips.
Nice solid feeling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
