Reliable Transportation. — It can be hard to park. I don't like the dark interior. But it is very reliable and has been kept in excellent condition. No major repairs during our ownership. I like the Sirius radio and Bluetooth hands free cellphone system.

Handling Of A Car, Convenience Of An Suv. — This car is great for taking family vacations or toting the young'uns around town for their Saturday soccer game. It has 3rd row seating when needed or extra cargo room for suitcases and such. It's just a great all around SUV for folks that don't like the added complications of an SUV.

The Modern Mom's Superwagon — Although I only have one 3 year old, I am a very busy mom, with 1 dog, a husband, and do volunteer work and a 1st year medical resident...My Ford Taurus X not only provides me the luxury of Microsoft Sync, but also opens the rear hatch at the push of the key fob, my doors open automatically, security, everything, and great moonroof, best of all, great tax credit because I chose a model with E-85...I also have rheumatoid arthritis so I did not want a gigantic SUV to get in and out of, but I wanted the length and size of an SUV without the price of gas of an SUV...Overall my Ford Taurus X is the best in my opinion the "Mommy Superwagon" car I've ever owned compared to the 2-door hatchback of Mercedes Kompressor that I had before my daughter had feet to walk on...lolol

Great Car Would Sell To Friend Or Fmily If They Had The Money — Would have kept car if we didn't commute so far miss the space and utility. Excellent family vehicle always drove when friends went out for dinner seats 6 adults easily ladies more comfortable in rear seats. Very easy to convert to flat cargo load space plus additional space for long materials by folding passenger seat flat!

I Wont Buy Another Ford Because Of The Problems With This Car — I bought this car brand new. It has had reoccurring problems with the transmission and the seat heater has went out two times. It had a "service bulletin" regarding a problem with the electrical system that affected the car and resulted in repairs over 1200 dollars.

Very Nice — i loved the fact that the seats fold up as well as down so people can clime in the back easier.Big plus is the rear conrtol for ac and heat on the head liner with vents coming from the top too totally cool.and plus there are ac adapters in the back as well as the 3rd row with more cup holders.

Great Car — Love this car, all the options of high end cars for half the price. Looks good, fun to drive, DVD for kids and mp3 for mom. Third row option is nice for extra friends to ride along. Good car for the price.

Family Style Car — This brand new 2008 Ford Taurus X is a one of a kind car. My mom uses it for work and loves driving it. It has one of the SAFEST crash test ratings. 6 standard air bags BUT not that gas friendly. It has 3 rows of seating and is better than any other style 3 row SUV out there. HIGHLY RECOMENDED

The 2008 Ford Taurus X Sel Fully Loaded Limited Edition Handles Well And A Good Family Car. — My car is HOT. It drives with class. We bought it fully loaded: sunroof, dvd player, sync, leather seats, air bags throughout, 6 cd changer, infared headphones and remote come with the dvd. There's a reverse sensor and it's all wheel drive. Black and chrome in color exterior, and tan/creamy seats with black and silver dash. NICE RIDE. I recommend this vehicle to families mostly. It has 7 seats, 6 fold down so you can have one seat and all cargo. Not bad on gas, Smooth highway and city driving.

Drive Ford And You'll Always Be Satisfied. — Performance-Good exceleration, good braking, excellent handling. Build Quality-Very good, paint scratches easily and grille has bubbles in the chrome. Appearance-Very good, nice fit up inside and out, except as noted in "Build Quality". Cost of Ownership-Gas milage is between 23 MPG and 24 MPG, and maintenance has only been normal tune-ups and oil changes. Ford Quality is evident. Fun Factor-Drives very well and is reliable, comfortable, and practical transportation.
