Ford Taurus Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Ford Taurus reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Ford Tauruss with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Ford Tauruss that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Ford Taurus lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Ford Taurus has been recently.

It is July 2013 and I bought my car last month. It is the first Ford I have owned since 1982, when I traded in a '69 Galaxy for a '79 Horizon. Wish I still had the Galaxy! I grew up in a Ford family, had my diver's license since 1974 and driven a bunch of different cars but had primarily been a GM for the last 20 years. They're still doing nice stuff and I've driven some of it but this Ford stole my heart and I'm glad to be back in the fold. Both Ford and GM have had their political and social miscues the last few years but I think Ford's product speaks for itself and I'm glad I own one. see full Ford Taurus review

I get it. This is an "old people's car" in the common mindset. see full Ford Taurus review
