What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Ford Taurus

Ford Taurus Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr Sedan turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I just wanted to give an update on this car now that I have driven it in snow. And lots of it here lately. One of my criteria when looking for a car was that it have All Wheel Drive, and the SHO fits the bill. It came with Goodyear Eagle something or others on it, and I was not expecting much from the tires come winter. Thus the reason for this update. I am extremely pleased with this car and the way it handles winter. The AWD system is top notch and I have had zero issues. Even the Goodyear tires have performed well, much better than I expected. (If you want to know which tires I have, drop a line.. I forgot to look before posting this review) The car is very solid, and it is very stable on the road. It does not get skittish when driving on snow covered roads, icy or windy conditions. It is a full size car, comfortable, quiet and a pleasure to drive and look at. All in all I am happy with my Taurus and at this point would certainly buy another.

IMHO This is the Best Car Ever..... It is a Ford Made by the Ford Motor Company of the USA. Ford has never taken money from the Government like the other two USA car makers. I am a 40 year plus GM buyer but not in 2011. I own a Ford now and it will either be the last car I ever own or I may just buy another Ford when I wear this one out. Right now I have 20,000 miles on it and the only maintenance has been oil/filter change and new wiper blades. I saved the original blades for spares since they were in fine condition and just wanted to be extra prepared for our trip. Again.....Best Car Ever..... No I do not work for Ford. This is just an awesome automobile.

No problems with this one or previous owned taurus in over 100 K miles.
2004 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 3.0L V6

The Duratec V-6 is bulletproof, one best engines Ford has ever made.
2003 4dr Sedan 155-horsepower 3.0L V6

The car does not need much maintenance to keep running well for a long period of time. It can take high mileage.
2002 4dr Wagon 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Drivetrain is rock solid; this car is dependable and starts up and goes day in and day out. Very reliable transportation. Note: Ford maintenance schedule followed precisely.
2002 4dr Sedan 200-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Has never been to the shop for any reason even after 80000 miles. Taken vehicle on countless roadtrips, and it has always done great.

2011 4dr Sedan turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I still have the occasional clunking sound in the front end. While the dealer tells me he is willing to fix it his actions say otherwise. The noise at this point doesn't seem to affect anything, it's just something I need to get looked at. I think I will have to take it to a private garage if I want action on it.
2001 4dr Sedan 155-horsepower 3.0L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
The Taurus completely fell apart on me, starting at a whopping 90K miles. The insides hold together well, but everything important, the powertrain, suspension, etc., failed at very ripe ages.

We have had zero problems with this vehicle. Most vehicles I've had in the past required one more return trips when new.
2010 4dr SUV 180-horsepower 2.4L I4

In 4 years and 60,000 miles we have had zero problems with the car. And the interior has very little wear. It is a very well-built car.

With one exception, every Honda that myself and my family have owned has been bulletproof--follow the maintenance and you can expect years of reliable service.

In 4 years of ownership, we\'ve never had an issue with reliability. I am a cautious person, but at no time did I ever suspect that this vehicle would leave me in the lurch. I give it a full 5 stars for reliability.
2008 4dr SUV 166-horsepower 2.4L I4

For the time that we have had the vehicle, we have had no problems and we know others with the same type of vehicle and they have had no problems either.
