Great car. Strong engine.
Great car. Strong engine. Reliable and dependable. Comfortable seats, interior design is luxurious. Has a wide stance and good handling capability. Wide tires handle the road good.
An amazing first car.
This car was given to me when I got my license at 16 and I was bummed that it wasn’t a cool looking sports car, but my standards quickly began to change. The car is very well made and it’s extremely to get parts for it. When I sold it, it had over 200,000 miles on it and I never had any issues with the engine, and it still drove and rode amazingly. The 6 cylinder engine feels very sluggish for what it is, however, it’s very reliable and makes enough power.
Best 100 dollars I ever spent ...great car
It's a great little car I'm a CHEVY guy but I got this off a friend for 100 and did a couple things and its been a great xar
Broke down every couple weeks
I did not like this car at all. It drove slow, it was harder to maneuver. And just wasn’t worth it in my opinion. . .
very dependable vehicle
Any vehicle that police drive is a good vehicle. They generally last over 200,000 miles. Very inexpensive to repair or maintain. People who have had bad experiences with tauruses must have bad mechanics using cheap parts.
Fix or Repair Daily (Ford)
The 2001 Taurus was one of Ford's worst products. At 124,xxx miles, mine is waiting to die of fluid leaks in every system, assuming the trans doesn't fail again like it did after 82,000 miles (common issue). Other issues include a rust clogged heater core (common issue), a repeatedly bad brake light switch (why mount the switch on the FRONT of the pedal arm, let alone use such poor quality switches that even the redesigned switches fail?), broken shift cable (common), air conditioning compressor seizure at 124,000 miles, and windshield washer hoses which broke off due to low-quality plastic tubing (hint: get mower fuel line tubing that won't fail under the hood instead of Ford or Help/Dorman parts), a coolant recovery tank replaced...and all on a 1 previous owner car! Oh yes, an OBD system that throws random codes when it decides to after not throwing codes for weeks, AND Ford wiring the engine control computer memory power to the underhood Air Conditioner fuse (so the computer had to relearn everything after the a/c compressor seized). Oh yeah...the all-day $$$$ repair for the paper gasket Ford used behind the water pump that fails and leaks coolant will never be fixed (a bottle of K-Seal worked fortunately). I'll junk it when it dies, so there's one less curse on humanity. I've owned older or higher mileage used cars with fewer problems (GM (Pontiac/Oldsmobile/Chevy, Honda, and Nissan 1970's-1990's models), and had I known 2000-2001 Taurus' were so bad, I'd have bought something else.
I don't reccomend any kind of Taurus. The ones in my family had serious engine issues and I've heard of people having the same issues.
Reliable car. Driven by a grandmother so it's in s
This car was purchased for our grandmother who uses lived with us. It was The main focus was for it to run in top shape.
Ford Taurus is a good reliable used car. P
Drives well for being 17 years old. We are the fourth owner. It is needing some basic maintenance. The interior holds up well even after 17 years.
Fully loaded, rides great
The 3 Liter Ford engines are workhorses. Properly maintained, they provide years of trouble-free service. This is the same car used for the SHO performance package, without the badging, or dual exhaust or heavier suspension upgrades.
