    2002 Ford Taurus - SE Standard (210A) Sedan

    Pros: Illuminated keyless entry

    Cons: 155 HP engine that comes with the SE

    Advice: The 2002 Taurus SE has lots of bang for the buck.

    Lots of great features for little money. If you can live with the 155 HP engine, this is a truly great value. Very roomy inside, comfortable seats with adjustable driver's lumbar support, 6 way power seat. Good ride and handling. Decent CD player/sound system. Optional adjustable pedals and ABS are a plus.

    2002 Ford Taurus - SE Standard (210A) Sedan

    Pros: Auto Locks

    Cons: Wipers

    Advice: none

    This car is very comfortable to drive. Handels curves wonderful. Brakes are very good. Visibility is good, very little blind space. Wipers are not the greatest, I've had my Taures for 2 months and already need new wipers.

    2002 Ford Escort - Standard (100A)

    Pros: Power Windows, locks, trunk access & remote security system

    Cons: Head restraints are not positioned correctly; noisy when back seat is lowered; tires are not readily available in

    Advice: Purchase extended warranty from Warranty bytel

    I have a 1999 ZX2 sport model; 50K miles. I have driven mostly highway miles (11 hour 1 day trip to Columbus OH from KC KS) with no problems & good mileage. The weather turned bad; heavy rain& hail storms...the car 'tracked true' and was stable at 65 & 70 mph. The air conditioning (cycling on & off) didn't cause a noticeable drop in power. The car was delivered with 4 misaligned tires; these had to be replaced during the 1st year. I would recommend this car to anyone.

    2002 Ford Taurus - SE Standard (210A) Sedan

    Pros: Adjustable pedals and the radio controls at your fingure tips

    Cons: Doors that lock automatic

    Advice: Drive it and you'll love it.........

    The test drive was great. I have been looking for a car that my mother would not have to sit right up on the dash and the Taurus was what I found. My mother and I was really impressed with the adjustable pedals. This has really help her from not being right on top of the air-bag. I would strongly recommend this car for people that are short or if they sit real close to the air bags. This is a strong 3.0 engine.

    2002 Ford Crown Victoria - LX (200A)

    Pros: Rear-wheel drive

    Cons: gas mileage

    Advice: Buy the Sport -- handling vastly better than std or LX

    This model is the LX Sport with increased power and upgraded wheels, tires and suspension. Surprisingly good on back roads (though not a TR-3) and plenty of passing power on the Interstate. Smooth, quiet and extremely well outfitted interior. Very comfortable. Mileage is what you would expect of a 2-ton V8 -- about 19 mpg.

    2002 Ford Taurus - SES Standard (300A) Sedan

    Pros: The SES with leather, center console shifter and standard CD player.

    Cons: No power back to the driver's seat and no power passenger seat.

    Advice: As stated previously, do not finance this car for five years if you plan on putting significant mileage on the car. Finance for four years and trade after three. If you take care of the car, you should break even.

    The Taurus is the salesman's answer to being on a budget yet needing a comfortable, safe automobile in which to travel. Ford has made style changes since 1999 that have made this an attractive automobile. For the money, there is no match if you drive a lot of miles per year(25,000 - 30,000). Finance for 4 years and trade after 3 and you won't take a bath in the deal.

    2002 Ford Crown Victoria - LX (200A)

    Pros: Seat comfort/ride quality

    Cons: Interior storage space/traction

    Advice: Get the center console and white wall tires to spiff it up.

    Next to a Lincoln Town Car, the most comfortable car I've ever owned for less than 1/2 the price. The seats are outstanding and more comfortable than my livingroom chair. Gas mileage is great for a boat this size i.e. 20mpg in city and up to 24 on the highway. Although I have the traction control and ABS brakes, traction is fair to poor on wet or snow covered roads. Interior storage space is a weak point and I would opt for the center console option next time around. This car is 60s technology with 21st century comfort. Big, roomy, easy to drive. Looks like a squad car so I'll opt for Mercury next time around.
