I Like It As A First Car — It's a good sleeper. It's also my first car, so it's has a deep sentimental value to me. It runs awesome and sound cool. At first glance it's just a granny taurus, but it's got a yamaha V8 so it's a bit quicker than a regular taurus.

Pros: Awesome sleeper

Cons: It's ugly

Love It But Most People Do Not Untill They Drive It — I love the car because it handles very well for a 4 door heavy sedan and it gets great gas milege while doing so. it also is ultra comfortable and gets off the line for how big it is. not to mention blacked out it looks rather sleek

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

Pros: Fun, Easy, and has a good sound

Cons: Transmission slips and klunks when transitioning a gear at slow speeds up a hill, and it has trouble starting everyonce and a while

Blah — It has bad gas mileage. It needs a new catalytic converter. A new catalytic converter costs more than the car is worth. It has ugly two toned interior. It doesn't handle very well. It gets me from point A to point B.

Pros: blah

Cons: blah

Purple People Mover — It was my old car. The performance was stellar! The body quality was amazing! It was purple. What more could I say about my baby? It was awesome to drive and I want it back because my GRand Am that I currently own...sucks!

Pros: Purple, comfortable

Cons: I don't have it anymore

Taurus — easy to work on, great gas milage, decent power even for a v6, comfortable seats, nice sytling, well build, lots of room, awsome 6 speaker audio system, very reliable, easy to drive, good in snow, easy upgrades, pretty good after market support. the Taurus has very futureistic looks inside and out, every thing is based on ford's logo and is almost too round, very nice look in front, over all a very cheap fun car

Pros: gas milage, room, comfort, cheap, plenty of these cars around

Cons: its a ford

My Over-the-hill Taurus — The performance is what you'd expect for a car of the type. It's got almost 250000 on the original engine and transmission and it runs like a dream! It's a very comfortable and affordable car. I get almost 30 MPG on the 3.0L V6. Long live pushrod V6 engines!

Pros: Great quality, smooth ride

Cons: nothing

Cheap And Reliable — May be ugly but with the 24 valve Duratec its actually got some pretty good midrange punch, I even beat a 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII with it! Not very fun in the corners, but what can you expect. Bought it cheap and has given me no problems.

Pros: Cheap, reliable, good power

Cons: Kinda Ugly, bland, I think every Taurus was made the maroon color I have

1996 Ford Taurus 4dr Gl Sedan — Its practical 4 a first car but i would like a better outer body and a little more power. But she is cheap to run and can help me carry me and my friends around and its a ford so it works for me.

Pros: Ford, runs great, fuel economic, spacious, cheap, no damage

Cons: not the prettiest car, not fast, no cd, mp3, etc.

Bam Bam, My Baby! — It's my first car, so she's my baby. For being 12 years old, she runs great. No big problems have arisen, and it gets great gas mileage. Maintenance is basic oil changes and checking tire pressure. I don't have to keep tabs on it. I love driving it. It's all purple leather interior, and it's gorgeous. The people before me took great care of her.

Pros: It's purple! She runs great, and gets sweet mileage.

Cons: No CD player.

Sho-gun — Overall, for 1996 this was an amazing car. Put it up against any other sedan from the era, and more then likely you will surprise a lot of people. The repair bills are horendous though, so watch out! They were great cars when new, but they are TERRIBLE "old" cars (due to the costly repairs).

Pros: V8 Power, Great interior

Cons: Cost of repairs.
