1999 Ford Taurus SE 3.0 from North America
This is the most problematic car I have ever owned
I bought the car at 61600 miles and 200 miles later the belt tensionar broke off and caused the engine to overheat and the engine blew. At 62800 miles and one month later the starter went out. And one month later at 63250 the heater core went out and I have no heat, the dealership wants me to pay another 1000.00 dollars to replace it.
I hate this car and will never buy another Ford.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I owned a 1999 Taurus Wagon that was the biggest piece of crap I had ever owned. Thank god I was able to trade it off.
Within one month of buying it new, I started having electrical problems. If I tried to roll the electric windows down the radio would flicker on then off. Had to have to radio/climate control system replaced twice (they are built together into one unit). Even after that if you had the AC on and hit a bump it would blow hot air out until you turned it off then back on.
The steering rack went bad at 30,000 miles and had to be replaced. The dealership would keep the car for a few days, and send it back to us with the same problems, never having fixed them. They told us we were being to picky, and that all new cars have a few bugs with them. Overall I am very disappointed with Ford and their dealerships.
