Have had very few if any problems with this vehicle. Has space for all 5 of my family, which includes 3 teenagers.

Only fault i have with it is that it collects a lot of snow and mud in the wheel wells.

2nd Best Car I`ve Owned — Have always been a Chevy or Pontiac owner, but when I went to look for a replacement for a van, this Ford was what I found. It has the room I need for my family and for the cargo I need to haul once a week.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Worst Buy Ever — I would NEVER buy this vehicle again. After owning it for only 6 mths, I began noticing problems with the shifting. Since buying this car new in february of 09, I have had to replace the breaks at least 4 times, turned roaders 2 times and replaced them 2 times, break fluid has had to be completely refilled 4 times( 3 of them in past 6 mts). I have had it in the shop for burning something (coolant I was told) out the exhaust and was told by the first Ford Garage that it was leaking coolant into the #4 cylinder. This garage was not able to do the work on the car, so I had to take it to a different Ford Garage who then told me that nothing was wrong with the car. It was smoking all the way to the garage, but when we picked it up it had quit. They garage said they did not do anything to it. The car was out of line when I bought it, and was told to drive a while to be sure, if it was still out of line to bring it back and they would fix it. When I did they refused and said i waited too long. I am working on the 3rd set of tires, and will need new ones shortly in the front. The last set was put on just before christmas and it 4.5 mts ago. Ford refused to do anything about the problems.

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.

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.
