I had to scrap my '95 Taurus this past spring and finally got a new car, a 2001 SEL. I had spent more hours than I would like to count working on the old one (loved every minute of it) and would just like to know what the major differences/similarities are between the two years. I already know the engine block is the same, as are several of the things that attach directly to it. However, are there any big things I should be aware of? I'm talking reliability issues like the rear strut springs (came busted) or faulty transmissions.
