"It was a good car for the first 5 years. After that, everything started to go. The blower motor, wiper motor, breaks, struts, the body, paint just peeled off after a couple of years, rust all over, constant electrical problems, exhaust, power steering issues, doors won't close at all when it is cold, major rusting out of the body, power windows won't work, car won't start, and on it goes."

"I bought this car last year for 2300 and it has not let me down at all. When buying one of these cars make sure you pick one that was taken care of by its previous owner. This will prevent any major repairs from being needed. The reason I say this is because I used to have a 1996 (same car but different styling) that was beaten and the transmission went at 125000. My 03 has more mileage and runs like new. Also make sure you buy one with the 24v engine, it is faster, more reliable, and has a better built transmission. Lastly get one with ABS its worth looking for. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM, get a fluid/filter change from a trusted reputable shop and change your fuel filter (can mimic transmission problems)"

"I bought this car new. Once the warranty ran out, it was one repair after another. $300 here, $400 there, $1200-1500 over yonder. The blend door actuator for the climate control system goes out every summer or two. Many repairs entail removing the whole dash, or taking the motor halfway apart. Mechanics who've worked on it have called it "the beast" & reported having nightmares about working on it--seriously. I do love the comfort features & the way it drives, but that's the nicest thing I can say about it."

"This vehicle is a money pit and rust bucket. If you look at Taurus' on the road make sure to keep track of the rust over the rear wheels that is on at least 60 % of these cars. It starts around 50,000 miles , Ford's response is that it's because of the materials that were used to muffle the sound by the wheels, some sort of styrofoam that holds in the water.What's even worse is that it's still very noisy by the rear wheels. That's it- just an empty explanation along with the further statement that "If you repair it you will just need to repair it again in a short time.' I can attest to that because I experienced it, I'm just glad it was part of an insurance claim. I know people who have repaired it on their own and wasted their money. Check engine light comes on at around 40,000 miles and no matter what you do it never goes off. Ford's response is they don't know why they do that. It's a problem with a good amount of Taurus'. Major repair at 50,00 - 70,000 miles including the complete a/c heating and cooling system, air bag (for no reason) , a lot of electrical issues that prematurely ruined battery, more rust on drivers side runner, breakdowns on expressway- etc. Also constant exhaust system repairs starting at 45,000 miles, at this point it's yearly. Beware of this car , the general opinion of owners and repair shops is that's it's nothing but trouble. I still have it due to financial constraints and I hate it. My car is well maintained and kept clean so that is not the problem. I have mostly bought Fords throughout my life because my father and grandfather retired from Ford. Ford used to stand behind their vehicles but that stopped in the early 2000's. This is the 3rd Ford in a row that was garbage and I will never buy or recommend a Ford product again."
