Made me a believer in fords.

2001 Ford Taurus SE

I never much for ford vehicles, until I purchased my 2001 ford Taurus from my daughter almost 8 yrs ago..My Taurus has been a very reliable vehicle with only routine maintenance needed,I have been so very thankful for making the decision to purchase it, it is a very comfortable ride with plenty of room..Although it is an older model it still runs and sounds good and does not have any exterior issues either, like rust and such. With routine maintenance, oil changes, tires,and so on my car still runs as it did 8 years ago when I purchased it, I have no plans of purchasing another vehicle anytime soon..No need to.

Great dependable car that has never left me stranded.

2001 Ford Taurus SE

Sometimes runs hot, great rides smooth, pretty color,, plenty of space, easy to operate, good sound system alerts work well, starts immediately,,gets good mileage,has plenty of trunk space, seats are comfortable and easy to maneuver, car gauges work properly, this car is performing very well for its age and I will recommend it to anyone who wants a safe and reliable car that holds up well with age. The car is well maintained and rarely has to be seen by a mechanic except for oil change and tire rotation.

Reliable, safe, and good on gas

2001 Ford Taurus SE

Extremely reliable. Rarely any problems with starting the car or needing repairs. It is very good on gas, as I don't need to get gas more than once every other week. It is an affordable car, safe car with loaded airbags, and cops almost never see something so 'basic' on the road so you almost never get pulled over.

Used car hassles. The pros and cons of used vehicles.

2001 Ford Taurus SE

My car only has 130,000 miles. My Ford Taurus has had Tranny line leaks. I also had to replace the starter, fuel pump, and head gasket. The AC compressor broke and damaged my serpentine belt. It is good on gas and has a nice factory radio. It has decent acceleration

2001 Ford Taurus that's Spacious

2001 Ford Taurus SE

The 2001 Ford Taurus is a very reliable car. I've had it for 5 years now. It's definitely a gas saver and a very spacious car. I have a big family of 7 and we all can fit in there. As far as mechanical issues, the only thing I have had to replace is the water pump.

- Kiara B

It's a 4 door gray sedan Ford Taurus. 2001 still runs like brand new!

2001 Ford Taurus SE

The Ford Taurus is a good built vehicle. Mine is a 2001 and it's been a good running car, the only thing I've had to replace on it is the battery. The ac still blows cold as if it were brand new. It's an all around good made car! I highly recommend it.
