1995 Ford Taurus SE 3.0 from North America
Problems every month when the car hits around the 100,000 mile mark
Broken Front Passenger Strut.
Broken Front Passenger Sway Bar.
Broken Tie Rods.
Broken Front Passenger Spindle.
Interior trunk button doesn't work.
Coolant keeps going low.
Muffler falling off.
Exhaust making loud embarrassing rattling.
Getting very rusty.
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.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

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.
