General Comments:

I purchased this car used when it had about 93,000 miles on it, and it worked mostly alright until around the 100,000 mile mark. It now has 108,000 and it has gotten to the point where I'm having to drop money on it every month because stuff keeps going wrong. I can't keep up with this car, and neither can my bank account.

I just hate the feeling of driving around and being stressed because you know something it going to break, so I'm going to purchase a newer car (even though I can't afford it).

I will say that one good thing about it is that it handles really well.

I have to agree with this review I had a 1993 Taurus LX it was bought brand new and was perfect until it flipped over to 100,000 miles and then all hell broke loose. I went from having no problems at all to having power window failure, a blown head gasket, worn engine mounts, slipping transmission, rear bumper came loose, ABS light decided to come on along with the check engine light and noone at Ford could pinpoint what was causing the issue. I kept the car through all of the engine repair, but when the transmission decided to act up I had to trade it in on a new Accord. I must say though I've had more problems in the fist few years with the Honda than I had in the beginning with the Ford.

Summary:

Comfortable ride to the repair shop

Faults:

Transmission leaking already.

General Comments:

Had the car only one day. (used)

Tranny leaking fluid.

The wife and myself have found that this car is a mind-meltingly comfortable car and fairly decent ride. I knew I should have steered clear from this car, but at 111000 kms and back by a good used warranty we figured we couldn't go wrong (same day home it's leaking??). We think we will go back to looking at imports again. Too bad cause this car does have potential, but even a warranty can't buy peace of mind with a piece of junk!!

Summary:

Reliable, great on gas on long hauls

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

I bought this car from a friend at work, didn't see the car or even drive it. I paid $3000 for it, have had it 1.5yrs and I don't think twice about taking off on long trips with it. My last car, a grand Prix, which I bought new, was so unreliable I had to borrow friends cars so I could take off on long trips.

My ford maybe be boring to drive, but it sure is trust worthy, and in awsome shape, only one small rust spot, other than that, the car is original.

Previous carEagle Talon

Summary:

If it starts, it runs okay

Faults:

When I first purchased the car, the distributer died, had to pay $300 to fix it.

After only a few short months my fuel pump went bad... another $300.

Recently, since my car was last worked on (last month for ignition problems), anytime I go between 45-60 MPH, there is a very loud whistling sound. No dealer has known what it is or how to fix it.

Right headlight has broken twice in last 4 months.

General Comments:

I am SO sick of the loud whistling, I've tried turning the radio up loud and rolling down the windows, but nothing can cover up the extreme high pitch of the whistling. Anyone have any ideas on what it could be? I'm losing my sanity and I'm getting frequent headaches now!
