I'd be pretty confident in saying you're the first member with a Taurus, too! :D

Welcome to the forums.

apart from there butt ugly styling and belive me the wagon lookes a lot better than the sedan they are a bloody nice car they go like a cut cat
very very nice to drive on long distances but bloody yanks never put a fuel flap release cable in them so ya have to hop out and use a key to fuel up
i may even import my wagon into australia that would be rare and also a well travelled wagon

im pretty sure that my dads had a fuel release thingo.

and he says it was the worst car he had eva ownd.(as in handling)
we had a holiday to vic and drove it ova and by the end he had blisters all over his hands from having to always correct it.

i like the look of them and the interior is a 10 outa 10. i loved it.

as for the body kits and that i think the only way is going to be from the us.

My neighbour had one until recently. He had lots of trouble with the power steering pump and the transmission. Very expensive to repair.

He also said it was a beautiful car to drive on the highway, very comfortable.

Personally I don't like the radical styling.

They didn't call them Ford Turtles for nothing. :wink:

You could get a pallet load of them shipped from the US for less.

Yeah I heard it was bad. Is that because its a FWD and the engine needs to be removed to swap it over? Or is it the price of the box.
