Affordable Nice Looking Car In Very Good Shape - Great For First Time Drivers — The car is very comfortable in the front and back with alot of leg room and storage. The trunk is also pretty big. Its overal just a solid, inexpensive car that doesn't look too bad. It did ride too bad either. Its not as smooth as newer cars, of course, but it's actually more smoothe than i thought it would be.

Cons

uncomfortable seats, looks

Taurus — Not the prettiest thing, but it's very functional. Good on gas for a V6, and quite reliable from what I observed. However, the seats are kind of uncomfortable, I wouldn't want to drive for hours on end in it. Overall, not bad, not the worst car I've driven for sure.

I Love My Car!! — I love my car. It looks good, rides smoothly, handles well, what more can I say? It's roomy, is pretty good on gas, and very dependable. It has great trunk space, a moon roof, and all the fun gizmos any comfortable car needs. I even named her Black Betty!! The only complaint I have is that is has leather...but that's also good too!! I love my car!!

Reliable — First impressions: Nice looking and comfortable. The trunk has plenty of room, and there is plenty of leg room in the cabin. This car gets about twenty to twenty five miles per gallon. It a power drivers seat and mirrors. There is two points of access to the trunk from the cabin. This car has been tested as very safe, according to many crash tests.

A Perfect Train Station Car — It has decent power but as plain as they make them, power is good, ride is average, handles larger than it actually it is. Cargo room is more than you'd expect. Not great for long drives because of lack of support in seats. But perfect for short trips.

Equal Or Better Than Any Mid Sized Sedan On The Market,ford Quality Is A Fact. — A dependable,easy to drive sedan,easy to park,excellent transportation,rides highway speed easily and smoothly.Low maintenance costs and the 3 litre V6 is fuel efficient.A practical transportation choice,that is also a comfortable ride.Nice fit and finish on body and interior.Larger back seat passengers need to watch out for banging head on door frame when entering vehicle.

Pros

Dont have to worry about scratches or dings

Cons

gas mileage, and looks, "interior is inferior"

45

Taurus — Probably the most average car on the market. Nothing special about the way it looks, feels or drives. Acceleration is mild, handling is mediocre, and the gas mileage is alot worse than you might expect...14.5 average mpg! However, it was cheap.

Good Value — Good value for the money. Rides and drives nice and has a lot of interior room. Very comfortable and would be great for long distance drives. The gas mileage is mediocre at best but overall it is a nice reliable family car.
