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.

Comfortable Lemon — Ford Taurus SEL was very comfortable and roomy. Brakes were always very stiff as well as gas pedal. It was on the shop at leads twice a year for things other than maintence. It was an 2005 and the cruise control broke and the gas gage broke, both things that usually don't brake for only being 8 yrs old. Other than that it was a good car. Will go with a toyota or Subaru next though.

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.

Basic transportation

Cons

drinks fuel with 3.0 V6 and after 100K miles requires a lot of maintenace.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cons

Taurus — I really love my car... not. It used to be my mom's car, and is mine now. Whenever I see it I just think that- so the coolness factor is -25. Besides that, it's in good shape. A few things need to be repaired soon, but it's easy to drive and is a fairly smooth ride. It's not a car that I would list as "fun."
