Cons

none that i know of

75

Ford Taurus Se — This is a good car. Great gas mileage. i have 75,000 miles and i've only had to fix a few things for as long as i have it. with the price of gas right now it costs about 70 dollars to fill up which isn't that bad with the gas it gets. It is a very comfy ride i did a four hour drive two weeks ago and it was a very comfy drive felt like i was on the couch. Its a good car and i love the thing. As much of an old man car it is it does its job and.... I can't be mad at at it

My Car — Performance-handling, braking are both pretty good Build Quality- the driver door got stuck open once, but other than that nothing has had to be repaired before. Appearance- gray interior and exterior Cost of ownership- about $30 to fill with gas Fun factor- it's pretty fun to drive, the speakers are pretty good for a stock car.

Pros

acceleration, fuel millage

Cons

bad in winter

55

Powerfull Wagon — pleanty of horsepower and exelent torque, handeling is a little heavy, would be alot more fun if it had a five-speed manual transmission, there isnt much to do in the way upgrading, sounds nice with a cherry bomb muffler, so fun to drive but easy to fall asleep behind the wheel since the ride is so comfortable

Recommended — Impressed with how reliable this car has been, I have gone through 2 starters (lots of starts and stops when the car was first purchased, an AC condenser, rack and pinion, 2 batteries, 2 sets of tires and 2 sets of brakes. Car starts first shot every time.

Decent Family Car. — Looks good, has a nice comfortable ride, and is pleasant to drive. Did not like how the ball joints went out before the car had 100,000 miles, or how the gem module needed to be replaced. Some of these repairs are expensive.

Pros

Great car

Cons

nothing really i bought it has a four door car which it is great at what it is made for

35

Great Car — Performance- The car had good acceleration for a lower end car enough power from the 3.0 doch engine that ford also uses in the ford ranger not sporty braking is fine great as long as you keep up the maintenance handling is very responsive every single time Build Quality- it is very quiet smooth and i do not see any foreseeable maintenance beside the regular maintenance Appearance- interior leather is nice and wood trim comfortable and the exterior styling is fine for a basic model car Cost of ownership- gas mileage is fine highway i was getting 27 at 85 with the cruise on the interstate and 32 doing 65 on a normal highway and in town about 20-22 depending on how you drive so pretty good Fun Factor- only fun factor i could think about the car is the mach stereo system with 6 cd changer and taking it on long road trips because it is very smooth and worry free driving on the road

Aquire — Performance : Could use more torque. Braking good. handling a little soft. Build quality : quiet ride, workmanship not cause of repairs. appearance : exterior - i like the look of the taurus. i'm not sure why... but i do. interior - so much room! even in the back! Cost of Ownership : eh. 15gal tank. needs about 2/3 tank per week. currently about $45 Fun factor: not so much, unless you take a lot of long drives
