Vehicle Description

2002 Ford Taurus SEL

The Ford Taurus is an automobile that was manufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the United States from the 1986 to 2019 model years. Introduced in late 1985 for the 1986 model year, six generations were produced over 34 years; a brief hiatus was undertaken between 2006 and 2007. From the 1986 to 2009 model years, the Taurus was sold alongside its near-twin, the Mercury Sable; four generations of the high-performance Ford Taurus SHO were produced (1989-1999; 2010-2019). The Taurus also served as the basis for the first-ever front-wheel drive Lincoln Continental (1988-2002). The original Taurus was a milestone for Ford and the entire American automotive industry, being the first automobile at Ford designed and manufactured using the statistical process control ideas brought to Ford by W. Edwards Deming, a prominent statistician consulted by Ford to bring a "culture of quality" to the enterprise. The Taurus had an influential design that brought many new features and innovations to the marketplace.

For consignment, a one owner 2002 Taurus SEL. Presenting with 64,487 original miles, very clean and well maintained, full leather interior, lots of life left and plenty of get up and go!

Exterior
Factory applied Black paint bathes the combination of neoprene crash bumpers and straight steel. A few areas of chipping offs, wear through, dings and scuffs are present throughout the body but nothing to detract from the overall presentation of this car. Swept back headlights flank an oval grille, a semi-carryover from the previous generation Taurus and melt into the fenders. Black trimmings and body moldings keep with the ebony theme with the only deviation being the badging and Ford blue ovals. Keypad code entry provides interior access, and an electric sunroof is shown at the top. Standard Ford 5 spoke wheels are seen on all 4 corners and are wrapped in newer blackwall BF Goodrich Advantage T/A rubber.

Interior
Plenty of tan leather is covering the seating and other surfaces in the inside of this sporty sedan. Large buckets in tan leather have multiple electric seat adjustment buttons that can get things just right for the driver and passenger baby bear. Some wear and soiling is seen on the driver's outer bolsters but no tearing is evident. In the rear is a sprawling bench seat with room for 3. A center console houses the automatic shift lever, cupholders, and has a storage compartment. The original dash is upfront and showing clean with a mix of black, brown and tan all vying for space. Brown carpeting for the floors and is protected by all-weather floor mats and a tan headliner is tightly adhered to the roof of this interior.

Drivetrain
A flip of the hood, and in a clean and unrestored engine bay sits the power plant. Driving the front wheels is a 3.0 Liter 24 valve DOHC 6 cylinder. On the back is an AX4S 4-speed automatic transmission and a 3.77 final drive.

Undercarriage
Slight patina, some road dirt and light surface rust are seen underneath. Floor pans and unibody are rust free and totally structurally sound. We do see some invasive rust on the rear mounting points of the engine cradle that will need to be remedied in the future but all else is very nice. The stock exhaust is suffering just a bit of surface rust but remains buttoned up with no leaks. New independent McPherson struts are reserved for all 4 corners of this car in the suspension department, and power disc brakes are on the front and power drums handle the rear wheel stopping.

Drive-Ability
Slipping inside this sporty yet very comfortable leather interior, this car fired right up, and on the test track performed just beautifully. Great acceleration, good handling and solid braking all add up to a wonderful 4 door family cruiser with all functions operational. Regardless of the opinion of some, this car is fun to drive, and the 200 horses generated by the mill is plenty to have some fun with.

Overall a nice sporty 4 door sedan, plenty of power, and well maintained. Nice black paint, wonderful comfy leather interior, and ready to deliver years and miles of reliable service to the new owner.
