    Awesome — The build is solid as a boulder- ive been in two accidents. both of them the car came out with no scratches whatsover The acceleration could use a boost-it accelerates like a grandma- but once it reaches ideal cruising highway speed it accelerates fine.

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

    Pros: roomy+powerful engine

    Cons: slow acceleration

    Ford's Are Usually Not Worth Your Time, And This Is Also The Case For My Car. — My ford taurus is pretty much worthless. I had to spend one hundred dollars on it in order to replace the battery, and then within the next two weeks( I onlly drive my car once every two weeks, when I come home from college) it was producing a ridiculously loud squeal. I can't wait to graduate college so I can sell the ol' POS.

    Pros: It has an engine

    Cons: Poor build quality, it's a ford.

    Just Look How Many Are On The Road, Enough Said! — Performance - 3.0 V6 has get up and go without the problems some of the 3.8 had. Build - Electric mirrors are broken, but I think that is a fairly silly feature anyway. Cost - Paid 6k for a 7 year old car with just over 100 thousand miles on it. Gets about 26 MPG consistently (even the way I drive). Compared to my old Corsica, this thing is a luxury car. My college roommate drives a 2002 Subaru Outback (stick-shift). We tend to use his car for short fun hops and mine for freeway trips. Love this car, would buy another one in a heart beat if some jerk slams into this one.

    Pros: Roomy, enough horsepower to comfortably travel freeway, decent gas milage, smooth ride

    Cons: Miss the turning radius of my corsica, but otherwise none to speak of so far.

    Third Taurus — This is our third. We bought a 88 new, then replaced it with a year old 95 in late 96. We bought the 02 from the dealer rental car fleet and it's been a very good car. Currently using as my "salesman's car" and has clocked just over 86,000 miles to date.

    Pros: Old Reliable

    Cons: Won't be able to replace this one when it's worn out...

    Better Than The Grand Prix — great ride strong motor...lots of options...lots of potential..far better and faster than the Grand Prix was. ford Taurus rules ford rules and gm sucks..period! and plus...ford is the only north American auto maker to win every single auto race out there in the world!

    Pros: strong motor

    Cons: head room

    My Blue Machine — Car is great - has major hesitation/jerking motion if you are merging on the freeway and hit the gas like trying to pass someone - hopefully just needs a tune-up. Brakes squeek every once in a while but hard braking is good and since I just got 4 brand new tires, handling is excellent. Concerned about an electrical issue in the dash - left side of gas gauge only doesn't light up, occasionally lights won't come on unless I hit the dash - and twice in 5 months it has not started until I got and and yanked on the battery cables. There seems to be a bad connection some where. Gas mileage could be better especially with an 02 but same old same old with a V-6. This car did such a great job in the snow I was amazed, still got stuck several times, but my 1991 Thunderbird wouldn't even get me out of my parking spot let alone get me to work and this Taurus did! I would reccomend this car - it's a great commuter!

    Pros: Great acceleration and braking, traction control, abs brakes and handles well

    Cons: gas mileage

    My Blue Machine — Performance is ok, accelerates and brakes great, handles well, hasn't needed any repairs as yet, but has an electrical issue I need to have looked at, hopefully not too catastrophic, look pretty good, but I like sportier styles, no repairs so far but gas mileage is what you'd expect for a 6 cylindar (not great). It drives pretty good and it kicks ass in the snow, 10 times better than any car I have ever owned, Love that! I would reccomend this for a commuter car, not for a fun car.

    Pros: handles great, ABS brakes are great, along with traction control

    Cons: gas mileage

    My Blue Machine — The acceleraton and braking are great, handles well, has some electical issues that I'm going to have checked out soon, hopefully nothing too catastrophic, looks ok, but could be sportier, gas mileage is what you'd expect for a 6 cylindar(not great), but this car has so far kicked ass in the snow, 10 times better than any car I have ever owned! Love that! I would reccomend this car for a commuter, not necessarily for fun.

    Pros: Drives and brakes well, no major problems so far

    Cons: some electrical issues, gas mileage isn't that great
