"Very reliable. Had mine for 20 years with few problems until last couple of years. Even then, repairs were much cheaper than a new car.
Wish current Taurus was based on the original; I'd buy another without question. Sadly, Ford only kept the name, not the design. Current Taurus has little in common with the original.
Only complaint I had was the poor visibility due to an oval-shaped rear window. Ford went back to traditional rectangular shape, subsequently."
