2001 Ford Taurus LX V6 from North America
Not value for money
Repairs or replacements to window, defrost, rattles, small rust spot year 4,gas injector, DP-FE, brakes, retractable antenna.
Expensive to own compared to any other car I owned (GM;s) and especially Toyota) and current second car (Toyota).
Ford is advertising its change to “Family Pricing”. Here is what it did for me and my 2001 Taurus. In Oct/04 I had to have the rear brake Pads & rotors replaced. Only 2½ years (22,500 km) later they had to be replaced again (which tells you something about the quality of Ford parts). The price under the new “Family Pricing” went up 81% for rotors & 48% for pads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
