Good Value — Great car overall. Roomy, was reasonable for our family of 5 for over 2 years until we got our minivan. Still use it now as my transportation to work, and it's perfect for that as well. Comfortable transportation, even though AC just quit.

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.

Cheap to buy. Parts readily available

Cons

Breaks often

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.

Solid all around, surprisingly agile for it's size, lovable.

Cons

Overwieght, underpowered, not the best car for an 18 year old with a lead foot.

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.

What Is That Smoke From The Hood? — The worst car i have ever owned, I had to drop a new transmission in it, it always broke, the brakes spot welded themselves together randomly, it always leaked fluids and got horrible gas mileage

Pros

Comfortable, good gas mileage, and pretty cool looking.

Cons

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.
