The Best Car I Have Ever Owned — This car has been so great to me. I have never owned such a reliable, comfortable car. I am proud to drive it and it has surely increased my opinion of Ford and US cars in general. There is so many places to store glasses, drinks and luggage. We originally wanted an SUV but this car was safer, great for family and business and its Huge trunk is more than enough for storage.

Great Grocery Getter — I have no problems with this car except I'm more into speed and trucks, I'd definitely look at this car in the future when the family comes along, but right now its just not me. As for the cost and reliability of the vehicle it's hands down a great car. My dad who put most of the miles on it loved it and has nothing negative to say about it.

2008 Taurus — Solid sedan. No real frills however very dependable. I have 50K mile and and have had very little problems. power steering pump at around 30K but warranty covered it. Other than that now problems. Very roomy and big trunk great for a family car and typically gets around 25-28 mpg overall.

Drive One — This car saved a life of someone very close to me. You can say it was the car because the accident totaled three cars and the Tuarus still drives good but it was time for some new steel in the drive way. I would buy this car over anything just because its the safest car in the world Ford. Drive One.

Pros

I cannot think of reasons for others to buy this car

Cons

There are so many things going wrong with mine.

I Would Not Buy This Car, Nor Will I Ever Buy A Ford Again. Vw Is My Fave. — Needs tons of repairs, had the torque converter, seal cap, starter, instrument cluster, smart box....the list goes on. It didnt even defog the windows, had to have that done went four days without a car, while they fixed that too. Not fun to drive, a hog on gas, mileage, wouldnt know about that, doesnt calculate gas, mileage, etc properly, even after it was supposedly fixed. Only thing is when some lady hit me from the side, didnt do much damage at all, very solid car!!!!

Love It — Love it, comfortable seats, Fun in a straight line. Performace wise a blast. Build quality is superb, Not to expensive to own. Good looking vehicle other than too close to the Five Hundred. Would reccommend this car to friends for sure.
