Pros

Roomy, comfortable on long trips.

Cons

Over 100,000 miles, be prepared to spend around $3,000 (over a couple of years) replacing parts on the engine.

What Can I Say, It's A Ford! — Car was bought as wife's commuter car. Have had to replace the battery, alternator, starter, and a bad cylinder head over the past 3 years. Thank goodness Ford guarantees its work! (GM has the same guarantee on the cars they work on, too!). It is possible the car was not maintained well before we bought it. It does quite well now.

Roomy , Comfortable, Handles And Drives Nice. — This is our 1st Taurus andnere very happy with it. We bought it used but it's in near perfect condition. We have taken it on 300 mile ( one way ) trips and are satisfied with the gas mileage we got about 26 mpg that includes city & hiway miles. The car is very reliable even in Colorado winter driving conditions. Overall we are very pleased with it.

Understated Design — Unless you have owned a Taurus I don't think you will appreciate one. This car rides amazing, has tons of space, gets good fuel mileage, and will also get up and go when you need it to. The interior has everything that you need and is easy to use.

Pros

Good interior volume and fairly good sized trunk

Cons

Old engine design, hi fuel consumption, lots of suspension problems (mainly the rear), lots of body noise, weak brakes, low reliability, weak handling, and low resale value.

Less Than The Sum Of Its Parts... — I bought this car at a good price, so you get what you paid for... Even when my expectations were not high, it was still disappointing to get a proven model with weak reliability. The major repairs are: 1) Exhaust system - The catalytic converter assembly fails at the flex hose joint. Ford refuses to accept this as warranty. 2) Brake system - Spongy brake pedal, lack of feel, and brakes overheat easily even after performing upgrades. 3) Suspension system - It makes all kind of noises and the springs are prone to sagging and even breaking at the rear. The engine design is from the 60s/70s and it is a very noisy and harsh powertrain. It is an average car at best yet, I know Ford can do better...

I Would Definitely Buy Another Tarus — I was always a Chevy girl but when I purchased my Tarus I was so impressed with everything about it that I will definitely buy another Ford. It's well worth the money. Plus this car is all american made!!!!! This is very important to me.

Don't Buy A 2005 Or 2006 — Too many problems. Something always needs fixing or replacing. I had this car for 4 years. Replaced the transmission once and it just went again. Water pump replaced. Replaced all 4 tires twice. Window switch and motor went. This car was reguarly maintained and only put an average of 10,000 miles/year.

Great Economical Car, Low Mileage — Handles great, good gas mileage, comfortable, easy to take care of, no repairs needed. Interior in great condition, exterior only has a minor scratch on front fender. Shows number of miles left before you run out of gas which is a nice feature.

2006 Ford Taurus — Again, I liked this car because it was free as it was a company vehicle. Drove this vehicle very long distances (over 1,500 miles weekly) for my job and the passenger compartment and driver erganomics made this a very comfortable vehicle to drive. Mileage range was excellent for this 6 cyl but it was not as comfortable as the Five Hundred or the Sable because the shortened the drivers seat track.
