Ford Taurus — Great car for beginners. Good gas mileage, easy to drive, and appealing to the eye. Not for power, speed, or racing, but all around a solid car. I got it after my dad got a new car, and it was great. Already up to 220000 miles, and runs great. I never get scared of it breaking down.

Pros: Reliability, Style, Beginners, Cheap

Cons: Speed, power

A Nice Looking Car — The Ford Taurus is an engineering marvel that changed the shape in automotive history which made the car stylish and intriguing. the reliability good, power could be improved with a more powerful engine and stronger trans. the suspension could be tougher, and the car could have been designed with sports car enthusiasm in mind. for the most part, my Ford Taurus is another mid sized sedan used for every day use and tends to be very reliable, but Ford could have done so much more to appeal to every market to make this car astronomical besides just economical.

Pros: it's a solid reliable car and gets 34 m/g

Cons: the Ford Taurus could have came with on optional high performance engine, suspension, and transmission.

My Ford Tarus — The best thing about my car is that it is very roomy. Your not really cramped. Unfortunately, it's a Ford so I don't know how much longer my car will last. The handling isn't that great. It's really hard to control in the snow and slush. It has needed a lot of repairs over the years, but it might of helped if I had avoided that ditch.

Pros: Comfortable, good gas mileage, and pretty cool looking.

Cons: Bad handling, needed a lot of repairs (no thanks to me), and it's a Ford.

My Old Ford Taurus — My car is old. The air conditioner doesnt work and neither does the gas gage. It does get 25 miles to the gallon, and is a very comfortable and dependable car. It starts right up in the coldest winter mornings. But, I am so ready for a new car! Hopefully, next summer I will get a Ford Edge!

Pros: great mileage

Cons: no air and gas gage doesnt work

A Great First Car!! — This is my first car and i have to say I love it. It has great get up and go. You can really feel the Ford Power when you slam on the gas. It also drives very nicely and turns on a dime. The Ford Taurus is a great car for a first car.

Pros: Great Get up and go, great on gas, drives real nice.

Cons: Had slight oil leak due to dry rotting of parts when i got it and sometimes the radio knob doesnt work. but other then that its good.

What Is That Smoke From The Hood? — The worst car i have ever owned, I had to drop a new transmission in it, it always broke, the brakes spot welded themselves together randomly, it always leaked fluids and got horrible gas mileage

Pros: Looked almost sexy when it was raining and it was remote started

Cons: It broke way too easy

I Love My Car. — I had the windows tinted on my car last summer to help it look not so much like a grandma's car! Also my car came with the 5 spoke wheels and a spoiler, so that helps the looks too. It's been a great car to me and I just got astro start in it, so that makes it even better. I love my car; it has been very good to me.

Pros: It's a reliable FORD!

Cons: It's by no means the fastest thing out there.

More Than Nine Million Sold Can't Be Wrong —

Taurus - the car that saved Ford in the mid 1980s. The fourth generation Taurus (2000-2007) is a very good choice in the larger range of the midsize sedan class. It is essentially the same car as the third generation Taurus (1996-1999) minus the overly oval styling. The powertrain was upgraded for 2000, and again for 2004. The base engine is one of Ford's most reliable designs, albeit an old one. The 3.0 liter overhead-valve V6 is named Vulcan after the Roman god of fire and ironworking, Vulcan, because of it's completely cast iron construction. It puts out 155hp and 185 lb/ft. of torque. Flex-fuel versions, able to run on methanol or ethanol in addition to gasoline, were available from 1993 on. Optional was a 3.0L Duratec V6. It is a more modern dual overhead cam design, pushing 201hp and 207 ft/lbs. torque. It has also proved to be very reliable since its introduction in 1996. PERFORMANCE: Acceleration wiith the Vulcan engine is average. It certainly won't set the world on fire, but it will get you to 60mph in about 10 seconds. The Duratec will get you there in eight, but it has much more higher-RPM kick than the Vulcan. Handling is pretty good for a relatively big, soft family sedan. The original equipment Continental tires absolutely ruin the car. The chassis is very stiff thanks to several key design elements of the unibody structure: one-piece side stampings running the full length of the car; front strut towers integral with the firewall; and rear strut mounting points tied directly to the side panels and to each other (the rear parcel shelf is a structural piece). The car gives more driver feedback than, say, a Toyota Camry. In stock form at the limit, there is safe, predictable understeer. Grip is good without the atrocious Continentals. Braking is average. The lack of rear discs on the sedan is disappointing. Pedal feel is better without the optional adjustable pedals, but mine has better feel than most adjustable pedal cars I've driven. Swapping to rear discs is relatively straightforward. Performance category recieves three stars with the VUlcan engine - four with the Duratec. BUILD QUALITY: After seven years and nearly 90,000 miles on the road, the only thing that really rattles on my '01 is the power mirror switch. Occasionally the moonroof shade will rattle if it's left in the wrong place. Springs are a problem area. Watch for sagging or broken springs. This is a design flaw that may or may not show itself, but is more common in places that use road salt. Other than that, the interior is a nice place to be, and the car is well put together. 300,000 mile examples are more common than you might expect. Build gets four stars because of the spring issues and it's not a Rolls Royce. APPEARANCE: It's much less controversial than the third generation "jellybean"/"catfish" Taurus It still looks modern, sleek, and classy. There are a few key lines that absolutely make the car's looks that the designers nailed, all while working in the constraints of the old car's platform (and doors!). ANd this one's Spruce Green. Five stars. OVERALL: Excellent value, very reliable, roomy, comfortable, good looks. I spend lots of time on the road, and it's a nice place to be. Find yourself one that wasn't a rental and has been well maintained. Five stars.

Pros: Bulletproof engine (and the noise it makes), simple to work on, parts available anywhere, huge trunk, roomy, steering feel, fantastic highway comfort, as reliable as a wood-burning stove.  More involving to drive than a Camry.

Cons: No factory disc brakes on sedans, engine is perfectly competent but could use a bit more power, city fuel mileage.
