1998 Ford Taurus SE 3.0L Vulcan from North America
It's a wonder this thing is still going!
I have had an issue with the transmission since I bought the car. Only a week after I bought the car, the service engine soon light came on, and I took it back to the original dealership I bought it from. They said it was a transmission error, and I had to bring it to a transmission-specialist. Both the dealership and the transmission people said that, when I bought it in the summer of 2006, the transmission wouldn't last me through to the winter's end. Here it is, the fall of 2007, my SES light is still on, and my transmission is guzzling tranny fluid like nobody's business.
Also, this car tends to overheat very quickly. Some of my friends have said that the thermostat may have died. Whatever the cause, I sure don't mind it in the winter, when I have to wait for the windows to defrost! The heat from the engine is so instantaneous, that it melts the snow quicker than it defrosts the windows!...wait, that's not good, is it?
Meh, it gets me from point A to point B. Need a new car soon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
