Pros: "Comfy, handles great, powerful engine, fun to drv"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"She's a real gem! She is comfy, handles great, nice ride, heat cranks (lol), lots of room, versatile, and I feel safe. However, the headlights are foggy, a/c doesn't work, weak defrost means I have to roll down the windows in the rain to clear them ...and the door locks don't always work right, but those are mostly minor issues. I got her when my uncle died and nobody wanted her b/c she was filled to the gills with junk and trash and sitting in a deep mud puddle.. I cleaned her up, named her, and other than the regular upkeep like tires, battery, brakes, etc.. I haven't had to make any serious repairs. She had 81k miles when I got her in 2011, and had just had the transmission done. Between my son and I, we put on 24k more miles (so far!) and she's now at 105,000 miles. I was rear-ended in this car and did get hurt - Thank God I was wearing my seat belt... but it could have been much worse. She took the hit well and the car that hit me was totaled, but she only has minor scrapes and denting on bumper and rear hatch door. I'm Still driving her with a :)"

"I bought this car off my parents and aside from some A/C issues and rust(the car is 16 years old) I haven't had too many serious issues. The rust is contained to the rear wheel wells and the rocker panel. The car has +230k miles (mostly highway) on it and still going strong. 70k of those miles I have added to the odometer. My parents have almost always driven Ford's and when this car finally dies I plan to buy another Ford."

Pros: "great price, OK gas mileage"

Cons: "transmission?, overheating, mysterious overheating"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"1996 Ford Taurus-- Pros- Maneuverable Nice interior Easy to use- gears and radio, wiper, and controls etc. were easy to navigate Cons- Sound system Weak transmission Overheating-- took it to a couple of mechanics and they could not figure out why it was overheating so much. THis was my daily driver for senior year of HS and into freshman year of college, and it was miserable everyday. I spent a lot of my time driving in the summer with the heater on to keep the engine cool. It lasted a little while, but I ended up selling it as scrap about 5 months owning it. I wanted to love the car, as it was my first purchase, but could not!"
