1996 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 from North America
A car only my mechanic loves
Transmission failed at 52,000 miles.
Freeze plugs corroded at 60,000, causing the car to overheat.
Tires and brakes needed replacement, rotors and all at 45,000.
Side mirrors would not move, the motor burnt out 36,000. Dealer repaired, but it burnt out again.
The Ford Motor Company do not appear to want to take responsibility for their mistakes or poor workmanship. The Ford dealer I purchased the car from now talks about his Blue Oval certification, big deal, I haven't seen the service improve any. I would never again purchase a Ford product and cannot recommend one. About the only thing that has not failed is the color.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
