Great Car! We bought it used 7 years ago and we barely had any problems with it. We love the huge station wagon storage in the back. We can just open the hatch and throw the bikes in. Half of our house fits! Pretty good MPG. Probably around 25 intercity +/-. Overall we are very happy with it, too bad they don't make wagons like this these days.

Excellent value for the money

by from Foley, AL on February 24, 2012

The Ford Taurus wagon a great poor-man's SUV. Very practical car and good driver. This is all I have to say. I hope this is long enough now.

This is a great car! I've had mine for 8 years now and besides an intermittent battery drain it is still running good! I'll hit 100k miles next time I go driving. While I did have another car while learning to drive, I was given this as a gift from my parents at the start of my last year of high school. I now work where I have to go on not well maintained dirt roads and so far the car is doing alright.

This was my first car and I learned a lot about car ownership from it. Very reliable driving 50 miles a day to high school, decent gas milage. Did all the regular oil changes and tire rotations and never had a problem. Bought it with about 75,000 and sold it with about 150,000 miles and it's still going strong!

Just sold it to my daughter and son-in-law. Fun to drive. Had the 24valve V6 and plenty of power. Tuned exhaust sounds good. Ride was comfortable, but stiff enough to feel in control. This is the SE with adjustable driver seat and plenty more. Only problem was the A/C. Replaced parts of it twice. Ive changed oil at 5K and at 150,000miles it burns a quart between changes - started that only last year.

I bought a 1999 Ford Taurus LX at about 110000 miles 5 years ago at a used car lot. I bought this for school and used it for work after I graduated. I got it for pretty cheap. It still runs pretty well. I haven't had many problems with it since I've gotten it. I've had to replace the speed sensor (wouldn't shift gears properly because it couldn't sense the speed) but other than that nothing too major in terms of repairs. It's at 162k miles now and it can probably run for another 2-3 years. There's nothing special about this car, but if you want a car to hold you over for a couple of years for fairly cheap consider giving this car a look.

Would I recommend this car to a friend? Yes, if the price is good. Which it usually is. I've seen used Taurus sedans go for cheaper than used Honda Civics that were older, and these Taurus vehicles are well equipped. I don't like automatics, but sometimes it's nice to have one and this car is a champ for long highway cruises. It just kinda floats down the highway, chomping up the pavement like black Fruit-by-the-Foot. There is no doubt that the features and comfort you'll get from this used car will be pretty much unmatched for the price. I would rate the reliability somewhat low as it needs brake jobs somewhat more often than usual and it does not like cold weather at all. A bunch of little things have gone wrong with this car, but the price is excellent and you get so much. If you're willing to deal with a few trips to the repair shop, I'd say go for it if you're comparing a used '99 Taurus for $2,500 vs. a '95 Toyota Corolla without power windows and A/C for $2,500.

I am a college student and the second owner of the vehicle. It is a great car. It is big enough to haul all of my stuff, the vehicle is very reliable. I have put alot of miles on it and the only maintenance needed was a new alternator and an oil change every 3K miles. I drive 25 miles to work each day and am getting 26 mpg.
