1999 Ford Taurus LX 3.0L Duratech 24v from North America
Good basic transportation
The dome light would stay on when the doors were closed. This would also prevent the driver's door from locking. Thanks to carsurvey.org, I learned that a little lubricant had to be sprayed in each door latch. Fixed the problem instantly, and the problem has not returned. Occurred around 30000 miles.
The "low coolant" light would stay on, even though the radiator was full. Cause was a faulty sensor in the coolant reservoir. Replaced under warranty at 20000 miles.
The center console piece separated from the plastic shell. Solved this problem with a little glue.
Generally, I have liked the car. Ride is good, and the car is very quiet inside. A few small issues have surfaced as described above, but generally I have been happy with the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
