1997 Ford Taurus GL 3.0 V6 from North America
Absolute piece of junk, stay clear and don't buy one!
The door switch that turns the insides lights off and causes the door ajar light to stay on has gone bad on three out of four doors so far.
The EGR valve has gone bad.
The camshaft position sensor failed.
Had to replace two front rotors, and one caliper.
One electric window stopped working.
The power steering pump went bad.
The idler bearing for the drive belt went bad.
I like the comfort of the car and the controls are convenient.
The car mechanically and electrically is a piece of junk. I treat my cars with care and keep them serviced, I have easily put around 200K miles on previous cars that I have owned, but I don't see this one lasting near that long. All the things listed above happened and the car doesn't even have 70K on it yet, I mean come on??
I can't keep this one repaired for long enough to get rid of it before something else tears up. I will never buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
