"Smooth running vehicle, Fun to drive, Fast, Low Maintenance. Welded Cams with regular Preventative Maintenance will keep this car running for a long time. I'd expect another 200,000."

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."
