Very good car!
Alternator replacement at 88,000 miles.
Nothing else besides regular maintenance, like brakes.
I bought this car as my second car in 2002. I had heard from family members that the Ford Taurus were very good cars. I bought one, and I am extremely pleased.
I have the SE sedan with red on a tan leather interior. The interior is really high quality and roomy, and the seats are really comfortable.
I am pleased with my fuel mileage as well, about 24/30.
The ride comfort is decent in this car as well, it's not like a Cadillac, but it's pretty decent.
Reliability has never been much of an issue, I think the alternator failed a little too young, but oh well. It now has 123,000 miles and no other major issues so far.
In conclusion, this is a very good car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
