Pros: "reliable, cost, design, fun , good acceleration"

Cons: "blind spots"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"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."

"For a 6 cylinder car this car is great. Great get up and go, smooth shifting, engine and tranny lasts forever if you take care of your part (oil changes and recommended services)"

"I own a 1999 Ford Taurus SE Comfort Wagon and yesterday I was in a high speed accident. 50 mph into a culvert the car held up brilliantly with almost all the damage to the driver side front ripping a wheel off in the process. that accident I have been told I shouldn't have walked away from. I did I was out of the care in less than a minute with minor bumps and bruises. I loved this car it had its issues (kept blowing head and tail lights) but it was overall a great car I will stand by these cars and recommend them for parents who are getting their child their first car or to someone who is looking for a safe reliable car."

"We bought this car new in 1997. It has been through an elderly lady toodling about town for 8 years, then a young driver going to high school and college. It has always been reliable. The only major issue has been the electrical system, which included fuses for dash lights."
