1997 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 from North America
A good car for a modest price
I had the Oil pan and gasket replaced.
The rear swaybars replaced.
The coolant tank.
One fuel filter.
Replaced the Transmission "Range" sensor.
The DPFE sensor, and "knock on wood" that's about it.
When I first bought the Ford, I didn't like it, but after I got all the problems worked out, it is running like a champ. I would recommend a 3rd generation Taurus to anyone who is looking for comfort and reliability, at a modest price. My car came with a 6-disc changer, and some other higher up toys, like 4-disk brakes, and daytime running lamps. I would recommend a Taurus with a 3.0 DOHC Duratec engine if you want performance, but if you want to go all out, then get a SHO.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
