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.

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.

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...

Slow — didnt want the car in the first place it kinda just was parked in the driveway. Its not exciting it just gets you where you need to go. Id rather have a 5.0 mustang or a 350 Z which im gonna buy.

Good For Everyday Driving — I like that the car was given to us as a gift. Its really a nice car to drive, but it's not a luxury car. Thats what I really got my eyes on, Luxury cars....(BUICKS) It just needs a few simple things done to it. Tint the windows, buy new tires, thinking Michelin and get rid of these noisy firestone tires.

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.

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.
