1995 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 V6 from North America
I will never buy another Taurus,
Since the day that I bought the car, it has shifted hard when going from first to second gear. About a year after I had the car, it started not shifting at all out of first gear. I stored it for 2 months, and when I got it out and drove, it shifted the same as when I first got it. As of right now, it shifts on and off every week.
The power train module relay went out 3 months ago and caused a lot of problems.
I have only changed one headlight the whole time that I have had the car.
I had to put in new brake switch because my brake lights went out, and because of that my car would get stuck in gear.
I have had to replace the brakes in the front twice, and have had a lot of problems with the brake cylinders and lines going out on me.
I had the same kind of car, just a 1992, and the transmission totally went out on me while I was driving down an expressway. That one only had 130,000 miles on it.
As far as having to put a lot of money into this vehicle, that wasn't a problem. Unless I decide to fix the transmission, I have only put about $250 into this car since the day I got it. That's with a brand new radiator. The transmission is the only thing that I would say has caused a major problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
