Steer Clear of Ford Taurus
Windows make awful noise when raising and lowering.
Replaced Transmission at 125000 miles.
Knocking noise at front end. Replaced rotors four times and because the rotors were warped on this model, pads wore quickly and have been replaced five times.
(Let me add I know there are a lot of miles on this vehicle, but most are highway miles as I travel a great deal.)
Cylinder in rear brakes went bad almost causing an accident. (Replaced entire rear brake system)
Two of the plugs are on back of this motor making plugs and wires hard to change. This also causes No. 6 wire to melt causing misfire in that cylinder.
Motor has been replaced and have had heads replaced recently.
Engine light has been on since the day after I bought it. The dealership checked it as well as my mechanic. Computers show nothing to cause this and was told to ignore it.
It is a comfortable riding car. Very expensive to maintain though. I don't believe I will ever own another one and would not recommend this particular car to anyone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
