Pros

Ride, looks, comfort, speed, when you hit the gas it sounds a little deep almost like a mustang but without all the noise & power

Cons

miscellaneous noises from engine turn out to be different problems, dodgy cheap parts are a temporary fix, Can't put in a GPS touchscreen radio because of the A/C controls, car is longer than my mom's van and my bf's jeep, steering wheel is a little oddly shaped, transmission is a little clunky at times,  High beams and low beams totally suck, & the sun shades used to block the sun out of the car's windshield doesn't fit at all.., not even the standard or jumbo so you have to order a custom one online.

It Is A Lot Better Than My Last Car But Still Would Love To See A New Motor Put In It. — I love the size, ride, and look of the car but it needs to be overhauled as it's got 123,465 miles on it and I just bought it with 118,000 miles on it, I thought I fixed the problems with the motor but then something else pops up.

My Ford Tank! — This car has happily provided reliability and safety for my family for since 2004. I bought it used and has been a tank so far. Regular maintenance issues, nothing irregular, I wish the new models where more like this...might have to buy another one!

Great, Powerful Sedan! — The car has great acceleration and feels powerful. Last time we took it to Midas, they said everything was perfect except the Power Steering Fluid needs to be flushed. The interior looks nice, and exterior is nice and pretty sleek. MPG is pretty good, 27 MPG highway. Not much maintenance done on it. It is fun to drive cause it packs a good punch when accelerating.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

no air and gas gage doesnt work

My Old Ford Taurus — My car is old. The air conditioner doesnt work and neither does the gas gage. It does get 25 miles to the gallon, and is a very comfortable and dependable car. It starts right up in the coldest winter mornings. But, I am so ready for a new car! Hopefully, next summer I will get a Ford Edge!

A Great First Car!! — This is my first car and i have to say I love it. It has great get up and go. You can really feel the Ford Power when you slam on the gas. It also drives very nicely and turns on a dime. The Ford Taurus is a great car for a first car.

It's a reliable FORD!

Cons

It's by no means the fastest thing out there.

I Love My Car. — I had the windows tinted on my car last summer to help it look not so much like a grandma's car! Also my car came with the 5 spoke wheels and a spoiler, so that helps the looks too. It's been a great car to me and I just got astro start in it, so that makes it even better. I love my car; it has been very good to me.

A Driver's Car — Accelaration Excellent,Handling equivalent to a midsize german car(On SES option w/3.0 V-6 duratec Engine)Pleasantly sufficient,Room even w/center console somewhat spacious - Get the Leather seats they are firm but comfortable - Probably great for trips,don't know yet just bought vehicle today(02/12/08)From what I've read Fuel Economy is decent for a midsize car - will find out soon. Overall very good buy,First Ford car,I've owned Ford Trucks(they just keep going)- I hope this is true for thier cars,must be because thats why they say Its the No.1 selling mid-size car in America!

Love the size, look, and feel

Cons

One thing goes wrong it takes fixing 6 parts before you finally figure out its the cheapest fix but you already spent more than you should have.

Cool Car With A Good Sound — I never thought I would own a Ford.., much less a Taurus. I love my car but the people that had it before me didn't take care of it. I'm not saying that the whole life of the car and the other previous owners didn't take care of it but the second to last owner had it for 18 days..., let me repeat.., 18 DAYS and they didn't want it so they reposed it.., I am stuck now with it making weird noises and a huge vacuum leak that seems next to impossible to find or fix.
