"Being here in the northeast, the car has a bit of rust after 11 years in the salt. However, it still looks good and it runs very well. Great heater and air conditioning, looks sporty, very comfortable on long trips. Any repairs it's needed in the 10 years I've owned it have always been inexpensive and easy to fix. I highly recommend the Ford Taurus to anyone who wants economical, reliable transportation."

"I bought this former rental, with 10,000 miles on it, in 2001. It's 2016, for most of the time I lived south, so little salt damage, and I had a garage. I'll be donating it, because, it is getting older, and I'm moving 1800 miles away. The only recurring problem is an unreliable fuel warning light, and the gas gauge, which, despite repairs/replacements, may still register 1/8 tank when empty. I rated comfort 9/10 because I'm tall. The ability to open the trunk through to the back seat is a great feature. The fact that the opening is about 34" wide is a design flaw. A 36" opening would have allowed easier loading of so many things.) I would recommend a Taurus based on my experience with this model year."

"This was the original Taurus that we bought. In all, We have a 2001, 2003, and a 2006. We also picked up a running 2001 that we have for parts should they need one. The engine and tranny on the parts car are both good and are not hard to change out if need be. The 03 needed a new engine before we had it three years, so I bought one from a good Salvage company and we have put over a 100,000 miles on it. My 06 looks new and I like driving it a lot. The 02 is driven by my daughter and she loves it. When they have problems, they are a problem, but when they run good, they run really good."

"This car was used briefly for a dealer car. I have had no major problems with the engine. I did have to replace a Barack line that was in bad shape after 8 years of driving in salt all winter. The front brakes needed to be changed recently. Up until this year, the only thing I did was routine maintenance. The driver side back door closes hard. The car on the listing was to have a 5CD player. I was told to bad you loose,or pay 500.00. I went without. It gets 26-28 on the highway, 15in tone. A lot of my miles were are highway. I really like the car, but I want an SUV."
