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.

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.

Pros

We really enjoyed our trips in this car.  And the fact that it is light in color, shows very little dirt when it is dirty.

Cons

You won't be spinning your tires and burning rubber on take off, but she responds in a positive quiet powerful way and delivers on economy.

Dependable As Anything You've Ever Had. — . Over all it has been a true blue vehicle that has NEVER let us down. Not a mechanical problem ever and not any other problem. Steady, friendly car to own. We have no squacks with this nice Ford. And it cleans up good.
