I bought my 2007 Taurus in Dec. 2010 with 65850 miles. I had a $1200 heater repair in 2012. It only gets 17 mpg but was a comfortable, reliable car which I enjoyed until today. With just under 108,000 miles on it, the transmission is going. I'm really angry as I expected to get 150,000 or more from this car. No more Fords for me.
I purchased my 07 Taurus SEL as a daily commuter with 55k miles from a nationwide used car dealer in 2012. Three years later I have only had to perform routine maintenance and replaced the mediocre tires with new Michelins. I do use synthetic oil and perform maintenance by the book. Build quality is very good. I wanted creature comforts such as leather seats and sunroof: I also have automatic start - All electrical, engine and drivetrain have performed to expectation. So, far this car has been reliable safe and around town gas mileage of around 20 mpg. I believe my car was vetted by the dealer thus very few issues. I am very pleased given the price point: Good reliable, anonymous transportation with low insurance costs.
I PURCHASED A 2007 FORD TAURUS SE ABOUT 3 YRS. AGO I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH RIGHT PASSENGER BRAKES SCRUBBING,TAKE IT IN THEY ALWAYS SAY IT THE METALLIC PADS AND PADS ARE GOOD AND THAT HUMIDITY AND WEATHER COULD ADD TO THE PROBLEM,STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM.NOW HEADLIGHTS ARE ON BRIGHT ONLY CAN NOT DIM THEM.ALSO EXHAUST PIPE JUST FELL OUT OF THE HEADER PIPE DRIVING DOWN THE STREET,I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL COMPLAINTS ON THIS.I HAVE EXTENDED WARRANTY,HAVING CAR TOWED IN FRIDAY TO DEALER I PURCHASED IT FROM AND WE WILL SEE WHAT THEY SAY,CAR UNDER 1000,000 MILES,I BELIEVE FORD MAY HAVE PURCHASED A FLEET OF CARS FROM SOMEONE THAT SOUNDS LIKE CARMAX THEY MAY HAVE BEEN IN A FLOODING SOME WHERE IN THE USA..FOR DID NOT NOT GET A BAILOUT,BUT THEY STILL NEED TO MAKE A BETTER QUALITY VEHICLE IF THEY WANT FORD CUSTOMERS TO KEEP COMING AND STAY AWAY FROM JUNK USED CARS WITH HIDDEN PROBLEMS....MY IS JERRY BUTLER,IF I DO NOT GET 100% SATISFACTION FORM DEALER I WILL CALL FORD CREDIT AND LET THEM KNOW WHERE IT IS PARKED
i bought a 2007 taurus se in 2007; it is now 4/2013, this car has 49,000 actual miles on it (i work from home hardly ever drive it anywhere). so far i have had to replace the fuel pump, and now the transmission pan & gasket, the flap for the heat/air cond is stuck on a/c in the winter and stuck on heat in the summer (i live in AZ). it also already has a leak in the oil pan gasket, the torque mounts & the cradle mounts are cracked. i thought it was a good car, until it needed over $4000 in repairs and is still under 50,000 miles. and when i first bought it, ford didn't honor the tire warranty and i had to pay for my own replacement tires when they were needed. also, when the car was only at 28,000 miles ford wouldn't honor the warranty because i owned the car for 36 months when it reached 28k.
I totally agree, this is the worst car ever. The American car dealers want us (the Americans) to purchase more of the cars made here but if this is what we have to look forward to go foreign. I had been waiting several years to be able to purchase a car. Finally was able to. I went to a well known dealership (Mitsubishi) and this is what they loaded on me. A 2007 Ford Taurus piece of junk. Maybe a month after purchased things started to go down hill, we have had it put on the auto repair computers time after time and have bought numerous parts just to find something else is wrong.
in october 2011 i bought a used ford taurus from town east ford and neve will shop there again. i was told they would check all the fluids and make sure the car was running right. On the day i picked it up it had a flat tire and wasn't running like it was the day i test drove it. I went back and they said cash sale makes it your problem now. I put air in the tire cause they wouldnt then drove it home. next morning I noticed oil on the ground. they asked me to bring it in and they would look at it. turns out they didnt put the oil filter on tight enough. again i said take it back and again i was told cash sale no take backs. I have had to replace the battery, the fuel filter, the spark plugs and wires, clean the fuel injectors, the throttle body, get tires, the compressor squeals, i put on a new belt and now it is squealing when i start the car, the air conditioner isnt cold. I cant wait to get rid of this car. I always hated fords and this makes me hate them even more.
I have a 2007 Ford Taurus and I love it! It is comfortable and does what I want it to do. This is my second car with my first car of 6 years being an 89 Mercury Cougar. Ford makes very affordable and reliable cars!
Had my 07 ford taurus se 1 1/2 yrs now Never thought I would say I Love this car.Great in snow and no problems at all.Everyone I know who bought a taurus had tranny problems.my hopes are after all these yrs ,they got it right.I said I would never buy another ford ,after my 85 escort,bought new piece of crap.But ford is now redeemed with me now.it feels good to drive a u.s car again,and atleast they didn't take the bail out.
I'VE OWNED FORDS IN THE PAST WITH NO PROBLEMS,BUT THE 2007 TAURUS I'VE OWNED FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS NOW HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS, THE EXHAUST PIPE BY THE HEADER HAS ALREADY HAD TO BE FIXED, THE CATLYIC CONVERTER HAS BEEN REPLACED. NOW TO TOP THINGS OFF THE LAST TWO DAYS WHILE DRIVING HOME FROM WORK IN THE DARK EVERY EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR LIGHT DIED, BUT THE CAR KEPT RUNNING (JUST BARELY) CAR HAS HAD TO BE JUMPED EVERY TIME IT WAS TURNED OFF. FINALLY TOOK THE CAR TO A LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE WHERE THEY TESTED THE BATTERY AND ALTENATOR AND BOTH TESTED FINE. TALKED TO A COUPLE OF MECHANICS I KNOW THEY SAID THAT ANY NUMBER OF THINGS COULD BE WRONG AND COULD GET VERY EXPENSIVE TO TROUBLESHOOT AND FIX THE PROBLEM
I have never been a fan of the Ford Taurus, but I must admit that this has been a great car. I bought used in 2008 and have been driving over 600 miles a week for work. It is now 2011 and over 100,000 miles and never been in the shop except for routine maintenance.
I purchased my 2007 Ford Taurus SE used in 2008. I have almost had it for three years now, and I will be the first to tell you to never buy a ford. Granted, my Taurus has more miles on it than it should, but since I purchased it, my Taurus has given me nothing but problems. I have had to replace many things, including my range sensor on my transmission, and that didnt even fix the problem. I have had issues with my car slipping out of gear, not going into gear, sputtering, stalling, and I don't think I can take anymore. I have now found out that I have to not only rebuild the transmission, but I also have to replace my catalytic converter! I haven't even owned this thing for three years and I'm going through major repairs! I will never buy a FORD again!!!!!
I have a 2004 Taurus SEL 3.0 24 valve Duratec engine 122,000 miles on it the car runs great and has been no trouble at all. This is my 2nd Taurus the 1st was an 97 that I sold to my Niece it finally died with 200,000 miles on it.
My ratings are based on value which means I'm considering how much I paid for my Taurus in the ratings. I bought my 2007 Taurus SEL two years ago as a program car and bought it right. It was still under warranty; I had several thousand miles of warranty left and did not have to use it. Since I've had it, I have only had to perform routine maintenance. Beyond that I have spent nothing. Many don't like the Taurus; that was good for me because I didn't have to pay a premium price for it. This is among the most reliable cars I've ever owned.
