    Have had great luck with my 2003 Taurus SES ohv 6 cylinder. Have had very few problems, except car at apx. 60,000 miles started sputtering when hot and at red lights, felt like bad gas or a misfire problem. For two years I had it tested for every thing one could be tested for for. Replaced plugs the s p wires, several sensors, ford up dated the computer, complete waste of time. Finally a diagnostic man replaced the " HOT AIR SENSOR, to the left of air filter. Engine light went off and engine is 100% better 3 + weeks ago. Had replaced H A S several months before, didn't help first time , maybe part was defective. Car has 75,000 now. spent apx. 1500 to 2000 trying to fix. but OK now.

    I had a 2003 DOHC. Had to give it up at 196,000 miles. Wish I would have kept it. I'm looking for another one with low miles. First time I hated to give up a car. LOVED it. The DOHC has 200 horses. Very nice smooth and stable at speeds I cannot mention here. Never had a major problem. Had the orignial engine and trans at 196,000 miles. The dealer was amazed at the milage and shape the car was in.

    I have a SEL DOHC 3.0, I keep reading these reviews and wondering... are these people driving the same car. It has been good to me for sure, 165,000 miles and has started up everytime I wanted it to. My brother had it for about half the miles and he didn't take care of it at all. All interior parts work, all the paint is still on it and it has never been in a garage. Power seat works, sometimes the 6 disc changer will not work in the cold, but that is it. We had an O2 sensor we replaced at about 102,000, no other parts. It still gets 27mph!

    Air condition had a problem under 30,000 miles according to mechanics at Ford of Cary. Last year we were told car needed brakes master cylender. Took car to Franks all it needed was brake fluit. Now in the back of my head I will always wounder. Did the air condition was really in need to repair, since it was cooling.? Other then that, I love my car. Would I buy a Ford again. No it does not hold value as Honda or toyota.

    I bought my Taurus SEL Wagon new in 2003. I've had no major problems until recently. First the starter made an awful noise once while still under warranty. We could not reproduce until 2yrs ago. The starter which is a sealed unit had a bolt in it. We don't know whether it came from the crankcase or the starter, but we do know it happened on the assembly line. Ford did pay to replace this. Now I have just replaced the crankcase seal which developed a slow but annoying leak after the starter was replaced. Result of the bolt we don't know, but my guess is yes. Other than the fact I got a Monday or Friday car, I completely love this car. Its a tank. It will go anywhere in the winter snow and is very comfortable to drive. If you can find a good one, you can't go wrong.

    my dad owns a 2003 with the pushrod engine.this is our third taurus.best car the ford ever made.shes got 172000 miles and keeps going.only thing is we had to replace the coil pack and wireset.no biggie $180 bucks for coil pack wires and new plugs.runs like brand new.were looking to buy the SHO.ive driven one and man do they fly.rides like a lincoln.this is just a great car.it gets better milage than my focus.i would definatly buy and recommend this car.oh and another thing is the lights are a little hazy.but hey what can you expect for it to be stored out side for 6 years and driven almost everyday.

    I have put 100k miles on this car in just over 5 years. The only concern I have had is that the transmission fell out at 96k. Otherwise, it's been a very comfortable car to drive with no major concerns. The a/c continues to blow extremely cold, even in Texas!
