Not the most modern thing

This car has lasted nearly 180k miles. It seems to be a great car, but any car with 100k+ miles can have issues. Overall, a great lasting car!


Smooth ride and a reliable gas saver.

As a mom, I love the six seatbelts. Its a smooth ride with cold a/c and a large trunk. Its been my most reliable car.


From A to B, Tarus has got you Covered

Good car for the price we paid for it. Gets me to and from where I need to go! Great car for a high school or college student!


Got it for cheap but its pretty dependable

Got this car when i had nothing for next to nothing. This car has gotten me where i needed to go with little problems. Had the coil pack go out but the car has over 210k miles so the fact that it runs as well at it does is inpressive. It doesnt have much get up and go but its enough to get you where you need to go. Safe car. Reliable. And everything still works. AC needs recharged about every two years but it works great once its been topped up.


best cars I ever drove hwy wise

Drives great, good on Hwy and good on gas. Have drove many Tauruses in the past, this one body style is super good.


Most dependable car I ever owned

This vehicle has held up with minor repairs for 10 plus years.The vehicle was comfortable and reliable. Vehicle got very good gas mileage and didn't cost much for repairs.


Great Fords

Ford man I have owned toyotas mopars chevy and vw FORD is overall bes dependability the distributors are in FRONT keeping them cooler and heat does cause RESISTANCE.


Decent first time car for a teenager.

Very reliable once you fix all the problems with it. Good size for a teenage driver. Once one problem goes wrong you have to fix more. They are inexpensive repairs but it just gets too old after a while.



Need front struts & coil great transportation car had for 2yrs I fixed the rear struts in December now the front in need but if I fix it may keep this car tinted windows & sunroof


First Car, headache

My 03 Ford Taurus SES was my first car. I was the second owner and obtained it when it had 80k miles. I drove the car for a while, and had a few issues with it, but not too significant. No matter how many times I replaced the wires, it was always loose. Battery was quick to erode, the tranny went with no signs, had it replaced twice within one year, and that was really the biggest issue. Aside from mechanical problems, the car was great and did last a while, but when one thing went wrong, everything followed.
