F Taurus — Cheap to get cheap to keep. Got it with 110K miles, 20k miles after AC, shocks and brakes are in need of replacement or maintenance. Paint is holding as well as the inetrior. is a boring looking car, but it does the job for now.

Its Okay I Guess — The performance of this car is okay. The quality of the car though is pretty good. The appearance of this car ,i have to say, is pretty bad. It has 17 MPG in the city and 25 on highway so the cost of ownership is a little bit under average.This car's compact v6 makes it sort of fun to drive though. So overall underaverage, but okay.

Decent Car For The Average Commute — Needs to be repaired more than necessary. Decent gas mileage, but it still costs a lot for repairs. It looks ok but the performance is not enough to be exciting. It has poor cornering but its not a high performance car.

A Good, Solid First Car For Those Not Looking To Race. — Known as the 'Off Road Taurus', she became a legend in her day. The car was build surprisingly solid and put up with everything I threw at it during her 5 year life span with me. She wasn't much of a performer, except when it came to the highway. She could weave in and out of traffic just as good as cars half her size. She has a special place in my heart and all the hearts of those who the privilege of knowing her.

Ford Taurus — Great car for beginners. Good gas mileage, easy to drive, and appealing to the eye. Not for power, speed, or racing, but all around a solid car. I got it after my dad got a new car, and it was great. Already up to 220000 miles, and runs great. I never get scared of it breaking down.

it's a solid reliable car and gets 34 m/g

Cons

the Ford Taurus could have came with on optional high performance engine, suspension, and transmission.

A Nice Looking Car — The Ford Taurus is an engineering marvel that changed the shape in automotive history which made the car stylish and intriguing. the reliability good, power could be improved with a more powerful engine and stronger trans. the suspension could be tougher, and the car could have been designed with sports car enthusiasm in mind. for the most part, my Ford Taurus is another mid sized sedan used for every day use and tends to be very reliable, but Ford could have done so much more to appeal to every market to make this car astronomical besides just economical.

Comfortable, good gas mileage, and pretty cool looking.

Bad handling, needed a lot of repairs (no thanks to me), and it's a Ford.

My Ford Tarus — The best thing about my car is that it is very roomy. Your not really cramped. Unfortunately, it's a Ford so I don't know how much longer my car will last. The handling isn't that great. It's really hard to control in the snow and slush. It has needed a lot of repairs over the years, but it might of helped if I had avoided that ditch.
