1998 Ford Taurus SE 3.0 V6 from North America
Comfortable, but unreliable
I had a "Freeze Plug" go bad just after the warranty ended.
Thermostat and water pump replaced at 47,000 miles.
The dome light/floor lights stay lit (I've taken the bulbs out) and the door ajar warning light stays lit. This also prevents the driver side door from locking when using the power locks.
The car was recalled in 1999 for a GEM module replacement (which controls the dome light timer and stuff) and I'm not sure it was done since I bought the car used. It's going in for a look-see soon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
