Great Style, Lots Of Options — Large trunk, great feel and drivability. Paddle shifters are cool and fun to use. Love the cooled seats and the tuxedo black compliments the chrome rims nicely. Navigation display is much more user friendly than the current Taurus dash panels.

Great Overall Car! — Great for trips! Comfortable seating for all occupants. Tons of trunk space! Does not do well in rain or snow. Sync works fairly well, wish the Limited would have had a few more bells and whistles. No Nav/Sunroof/Heated Seats. But the options it does have are nice. Replacement Tires for the odd 19" wheels proved to be very expensive.

Great Car — Good looks, clean shape lines, everything works well and no known issues. Very nice sound system too -- that was important to my son anyway. Handling is crisp. Electronics are very intuitively design. Visibility is not so good looking out the rear of the vehicle.

Pros

Nice power(365HP) and All Wheel Drive. Massaging Seats, Heated/Cooled Seats, Backup Camera, Nav, Blind Spot Monitoring, Cross Traffic Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise

Cons

Brakes could be better for a fast, heavy car.

Quick 4 Door That Can Be Driven In Winter — The car itself is great. All Wheel Drive helps in the Northern Ohio winters. Acceleration is very nice(twin turbo), especially for a 4,500 pound car. Gas mileage is only average. If you are on it a good bit, the real average in town is about 15, and 22-23 highway. The trunk is massive. With the seats down, I was able to haul a 46 inch TV, a 50 inch TV stand, and a 50 inch sound bar with room to spare.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Awesome Machine — Very easy driver, fun to drive, love the styling of the vehicle, I would highly recommend purchasing one of these! The engine has plenty of power and the Taurus offers a great range of options making it very luxurious as well.

Power, Style And Features — This car has all the features you would want (I love cooled seats) and amazing power. I have a friend that has owned a number of Audi vehicles. He made the comment, if only owners of European cars new what was in the Ford Taurus SHO.

Fun Ride — I have had car since October. Car grabs peoples attention and I am always asked about it. Very nice styling from Ford. Does have issues w/ blind spots when backing. Also feel a little incapsulated when driving. Overall it is a fun drive with a good amount of punch in the engine.
