    Aquire — Performance : Could use more torque. Braking good. handling a little soft. Build quality : quiet ride, workmanship not cause of repairs. appearance : exterior - i like the look of the taurus. i'm not sure why... but i do. interior - so much room! even in the back! Cost of Ownership : eh. 15gal tank. needs about 2/3 tank per week. currently about $45 Fun factor: not so much, unless you take a lot of long drives

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: MPG

    My Car — Performance-handling, braking are both pretty good Build Quality- the driver door got stuck open once, but other than that nothing has had to be repaired before. Appearance- gray interior and exterior Cost of ownership- about $30 to fill with gas Fun factor- it's pretty fun to drive, the speakers are pretty good for a stock car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: sound system

    Cons: not really anything

    Decent But Too Heavy — this car is decently good pickup and passing power is adequate but if the car was a couple hundred pounds lighter it would fly its been totally problem free except when im driving the tires and struts tend to fail..=] i like how this year taurus looks after the bulbous models and before the executive look it just looks sleek the gas mileage is horrible if you drive it like i do but other than that this car is good clean fun =]

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: comfort...and handling

    Cons: turning radius and gas milege.

    Taurus — fords suck. it really sucks at accelerating, breaking. MPG sucks and over a really bad car you know what they say about fords Fix Or Repair Daily. but if your looking for a car to just get you from point A to point B heres a car.

    Not Sporty Enough For Me — Very smooth ride. like your floating on air and can fly. very unique car at that as well. dont think that i would own another one cause its more of a family car and i go for sporty cars but thats just me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good 3.0 motor and very smooth

    Cons: none

    It's A Nice Car. — Not a bad family car. Limited production Centenial Edition. fully loaded, only needs a rear spoiler. DOHC V6 could have a little more power to move it. I get around 20 mpg around town. It needs better handling, not sporty enough for me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The options

    Cons: Electric system

    Good For Everyday Use, Not The Most Amazing Car Though. — Performance - great acceleration, good breaks, handles well, could use some new tires though. Has a 24 valve engine. Pretty good gas mileage, 22 mile per gallon and i normally drive it kinda hard cause it's just more fun that way.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: It's pretty common.

    Dependable, Reliable No Problems Just Regular Maintanence! — love that it's made in the USA, would rather have leather seats though!Cost was reasonable back in 2003, It's fun, I have a spoiler on the back, It looks good and performs well, Never had any problems with it, My next car will be a mini BMW or a bigger BMW I think!

    2003 Ford Taurus Se Wagon Reveiw — Performance: I was expecting more from the 3 litter V6. It only has 155 HP and 185LB of torque. it dose sound really good though. It gets around 23MPG usually but i live in a vary hilly place. Its even gone up to 28 on the highway before. It is desen't on the way to 60 with a time of around 9 sec, but after that it slows way down. The wagon is electrically limited to a top speed of 111MPH (because of the tiers) but if you remove the limiter your looking at speeds of up to around 128. There are alot of horror story's about Taurus transmissions but the 2003 model year had a great rating. The steering is VARY light and had almost no feel to it. The brakes are vary stiff but has excellent ABS. it holds the road well for being a 2 ton monster that is more than 16 feet long, and unlike most fords this has interdependent rear suspension. Build Quality: The only things that have gone wrong with this particular Taurus is that the starter went bad and the "water tight seal" on the driver side door had to be replaced a few times. No major mechanical problems have happend so far with this car....Knock on wood. Appearance: Interior: this is the middle of the range SE Wagon. the interior is kind of bland and the dash is a mess of different color panels. The cloth seats are vary comfortable for long trips but the 3rd row trunk seats are only good for short trips. Exterior: I really like the styling for the 2000-2003 models. It is a vary good looking car from the outside, as long as you don't get it in black or red. with roof racks as stranded it is vary good for road trips. Cost of Ownership: Parts are usually cheep for the Taurus and they are fairly easy to fix. I have gotten up to 28 MPG with the Taurus, but usually get around 21. Fun Factor: With a great sounding engine and independent suspension it is a fun car to drive. be careful for wheel spin when its wet though. Connor Pence

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: holds 8 people with the optinal trunk seats

    Cons: back drop down alot fully loaded and steering is vary light
