1996 Ford Taurus LX from North America
Good if it has low mileage. Very comfortable ride
The Transmission was replaced at 80,000 miles.
The compressor went at 85,000 miles.
I keep blowing my ABS fuse around 85,000 miles.
My oil pan gasket leaked at 88,000 miles and this cost me over $2,500 alone to fix.
The brakes were replaced numerous times.
The instrument panel intermittantly dims. Problem was noticed around 85,000 miles.
Several recalls were put out a few years ago when the car was manufactured.
With leather seats, the car is extremely comfortable and I love to take long trips. The handling of the car is great.
Unfortunately, at 90K miles the car is beginning to give me a lot of problems and they are all very costly to repair. I've kept the car in immaculate condition. I was the only driver and can count on 1 hand how many times I've let someone else drive it. Too bad, that at 90K, the car doesn't run close to the way it used to run. I will probably be getting a new car soon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
