I had a Taurus back in the mid 90s and really liked it.
have a Lincoln MKS (2011) with an SHO engine and drive line 13.8 in a quarter mile @ 101mph. Grandpa taurus and fast
I dated a girl that had one,she liked my Porsche better.
When I was in the Navy I remember the MA's had the late 90's, early 2000 Taurus Police cars. The transmissions seemed to grenade in them.
In my County they are all Ford, I hear the PTU goes out in them and the Explorers.
I like the newer ones, but the SHO's are pretty bada$$.
I had a Taurus in the 90s loved it, lost it to my oldest daughter when she got her license.
I drove moms 88 Taurus wagon in high school. The trans went out in it and the mechanic rebuilt it and made it shift like a dragster. I got rear ended in that car and continued to drive it smashed up until the trans let go again. She had a newer one but I preferred the thunderbird I had after it. So, no, I’m good on the Taurus
I think Mom's is a 2010. Very low miles, runs great. I drive it to Florida once a year to see my Daughter.
sorry russ, this thread is fair game as well...
For company cars I've worn out so many Taurus/Sables that I lost count. Great company car.
Yes. I inherited one when my mom died. Good solid car. Nothing special but it was a free car. Fairly new. Low miles.
My wife used to drive my mom to her doctors appointments in it. My wife hated it because she thought she thought she was supposed to hate it after driving my now dead mother in it. Stupid mentality she was taught by her family.
She used it as a trade in when she bought her truck. Bad move. We didn’t get squat for it. I would rather have had the Taurus to wear out than a few dollars off the truck. It would have saved thousands of miles of wear on nicer vehicles.
My roommate had an SHO Taurus and it would flat out stroll. Hell yeah I’d drive one, like I stole it!
After we'd had 3 kids I drove an '87 Taurus wagon about 'til the wheels fell off. The only thing I ever did to it was swap out the passenger side front axle because the outside boot got torn and the road dirt that got in there helped wipe out the CV joint, and it was just cheaper and easier to replace the entire axle. The day after I replaced it I drove the wife and kids from NY down to Disney World in Fla. to spend a few days and see our oldest daughter sing with her Elementary school choir. It certainly wasn't style'n, but it ran well for what it was.
Sure, if I was looking for a sedan I’d get a Taurus. My mom has a 12 year old one that’s been flawless.
I sold a bunch of them back in my car lot days. People liked them and was always happy with them.
That said. I have never owned one and not sure if I am allowed to vote in this possibly flawed poll.
In the mid-late 90s my dept. switched from Chevys to Tauruses for our patrol cars. We did not baby them. They drove well and seemed to hold up to the abuse quite well.
Have a 2003 as we speak. Got it for a family member and let's just say things didn't go as planned. Right now I drive it occasionally and it's seems to be just about bulletproof. Good mileage and everything works. Replaced all four struts, four new tires and plan on driving it for a while. Keeps miles off the 4Runner.
I’d use one to drive to drive away from a coughing Chinese person
The one thing that a Ford guy and Chevy guy can agree on? What dodge screwed up on
My wife used to drive one, we didn't like it but we survived.
Just don't tick off the mob.
