2000 Ford Taurus, it's a badge/golden color car with tinted windows

2000 Ford Taurus SE

Recently spent $950 to have the car fixed, it was misfiring and needed a new fuel pump which alone and costed me 350 dollars and it also needed a new starter and a mass sensor. The performance of the car is great compared to my previous vehicle which didn't have any A/C this one does and I'm very happy about it but I feel like my gas just comes and goes so quick, what I dislike about it the most

Sleek, reliable & easy to drive.

2000 Ford Taurus SE

Very comfortable, it is very reliable, has air conditioning & working heat cloth interior, am/FM radio & tape deck, good on gas mileage & has been well maintained before it was even purchased by us only thing that seemed to be wrong were small cosmetic issues such as chipping paint & a cracked windshield, may need brakes/rotors in the near future.

It's a new big car Lots of room Four doors

2000 Ford Taurus SE

I love my car however it has had to go into the shop a few times. It needed new spark plugs and the starter went out and the AC had gone out but to be fair it's a 19 year old car so I expected a few problems. But after being fixed it runs like its brand new. As my first car I would highly encourage this as a first car for someone!

- Dan P

My ford Taurus is very reliable car. If get another one if I could.

2000 Ford Taurus SE

I haven't had many problems for even as old as it is. It seems to be a reliable car. It comfortable and runs good. It has fairly good gas mileage and doesn't overheat. I've had to repair the starter and there has been minor engine problems.. The interior stays fairly good, it's easy to drive and it's comfortable for long rides.


Still works and is in very good condition

2000 Ford Taurus SE

I've never had a problem with my car. It's a very good running vehicle. 19 years old and runs like new. Never missed a oil change and only been to the shop to get tires put on. I used to be a Chevy guy but this fixed that. All around great car and very roomy. The cassette player still works in it

- Chris W

Good Dependable cheap car

2000 Ford Taurus SE

Coolant leaks/overheating can be an issue if you don't do a good coolant flush. But do that and everything else works great! Just the usual wear and tear issues. Parts are cheap and easy to find. Vehicle has never let me down and it has gone through some serious abuse throughout its lifetime.

- Christopher M

The 2000 ford Taurus is a good car.

2000 Ford Taurus SE

it has been a good and reliable car there have not been any issues outside of the routine maintenance. The only thing that I have ever had issues with is the seat belt on the passenger side getting stuck a lot. We have taken it to get fixed and it just keeps getting stuck again.
