Best First Car Ever — There is not many aftermarket body kits and stuff. The stereo sucks too, so I'm putting a new one in soon. For an average sedan it only get 21 MPGs. The handling of this car is great. Accelaration is just about right. Nice big interior. A Perfect First Car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Affordable and long-lasting

Cons: If you don't like big cars, don't buy a Taurus

98 Ford Taurus — it has a quick acceleration, and still runs good for being 10 years old. the brakes squeak sometimes, but otherwise can stop on a dime. It has needed transmission oil hose replaced. theres a few small scratches here and there, but otherwise good appearence. Gets good gas mileage. This cars engine gives out a good kick when needed, which makes it fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: engine puts out a good strong kick

Cons: top speed not that high and doesnt have some of the new features found in newer models

Awesome — it is amazing. runs nice but makes weird noises. if you didnt know, youd think there was a beast in the hood instead of an engine. hah. but you can only fill the gas tank halfway or it will leak. and the back left door is coming apart. lol.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: everything yo

Cons: gas tank.

Sho — its a quick car, keeps up with v6 mustangs and camaros, but has the ability to drive in snow. only 68,000 miles :) a little rare on these cars. all leather, mach sound system, 6 disk cd, all the goodies. looks great almost flawless paint. very fun to drive, handles exellently and doesnt even feel fast at speeds over 80. exellent suspension, soft like a car, but still firm enough to be sporty

Pros: reliability, uniqness

Cons: poor gas mileage when driven hard

Ford Taurus — reliable family car, that still runs. The worst part is having to replace the heater core, it's in the dash. Not a job for rookie like me. Good on gas and roomy enough for a family of three. The v6 is a good engine.

Pros: Good gas mileage, good power

Cons: replacement of the heater core

98' Ford Taurus — Performance: from a dead stop it takes a little under 10 seconds to get to 60, will hit 111mph governor going downhill, braking is the same as any other 3300lb Ford sedan, handles like a bathtub with traction control. Build Quality: it's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it's built like a tank; aside from the normal 10-year-old car sounds, just the seat springs are a tad squeaky, other than that it's a trooper. Appearance: it might as well be a bubble, everything is circular (dash, headlights, windows, even the body). Cost of Ownership: gets 20mpg with a light foot around the city, about 26mpg on the highway, have put about $3k into it with misc repairs and tuneups (it sat for 3 years, and survived through 2' of snow for 2 weeks one year). Fun Factor: hahaha, you're kidding right?

Pros: My first car, and its lasted A LOT longer than most Tauruses do on average

Cons: Its a Taurus :P

Just A Car — just a car just a car just a car had a good engine, but transmission was too slow. hard steering, plastic interior all the way. did not really like this car design or driving. was wife's choice and she quickly regretted it. she really wanted the station wagon, but the saleman put us up with a sedan instead.

Pros: just a car  keypad allowed you to forget about the keys

Cons: poor transmission

Taurus Sho — This is a great family car, lots of room. I bought so that I would be able to have room for my son. The car has all leather, 6 disc changer in the trunk, sunroof, all the bells and whistles. It has pretty good performance, considering the weight of the car.

Pros: Roomy

Cons: Needs Paint

My Car — It's slooowwwwwwww, but it is a good first car and kind of average. Unfortunatly it is a gas hog only returning 16 miles per gallon barely in city driving. Had to replace the power steering pump after i got it and still have yet to replace the shocks on it, replacing the power steering pump took all day and it was a pain my grandpa has an acronym for ford (found on roadside dead) due to difficulties working on fords (he's a mechanic).

Pros: it's average and a good first car

Cons: it's slooooowwwwww
