    Ok — It's nice, but not my first choice. It's a great first car and it is reliable. I never would've chosen this car but it was given to me for free so I enjoy having it. I would look for something with better gas mileage.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: reliable

    Cons: 17-18 mpg

    Good Family Car And Every Day Driver — The Ford Taurus had some years where Ford ignored it and quality and reliability were an issue. For 2004, this was not a problem as Ford started paying attention again. The SES has all the standard features for mid value sedans of that year. The 3.0 L engine is a little weak for a car this size but it is adequate. Just don't expect it to put you back in your seat if you hit the gas to get on the freeway. Ford doesn't seem to think people want or need second gear. I've noted several models over the years that did not have a second gear on the automatic gear selectors. I find a second gear in heavy traffic keeps the car from shifting constantly.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfortable ride, plenty of room, fold down rear seats provide for extra cargo space

    Cons: Wish the gear selector had 1, 2, D and OD.  They leave out the 2 so I can't stay in 2nd.  A/C could be stronger as it doesn't work real well in 100 plus degree heat.

    Very Reliable All Around A Great Car For Anyone — my favorite thing about the car is its roomy inside but it doesn't take away form the power of the car like some vehicles the car still has a lot of go in it good for kids who wanna cruise with friends or a family that wants to go somewhere

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: big interior and trunk great family car good for long trips or just a everyday drive around car with the family

    Cons: some blind spots the gas mileage is ok not the best but not the worst

    This Is A Good Realiable Car ,if You Maintan It — the brakes are very touchy, acceleration is something you very notice: picks up very fast. only thing is the bumpers are a bit weak but only 60 bucks a bumper its not much a problem. This car is a 6 cyliander so its drinks gas but shows u how much you have till empty. low maintence, and loud speakers make this an ok car. This car is also a work horse!!!!! we put 220,000 miles plus an shes still working it!!! so treat ur cars right an they can do the same for you.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: drives like butter on a hot pan

    Cons: in the snow trackion is touchy

    Probably The Best Car I'll Ever Own — Quick car, fully loaded. Only repair neded was one that was caused by the previous owner being an idiot. 25 avg mpg, 205hp(stock). aluminum dohc 24v duratec ax4n non sychronous transmission. Sunroof, traction control,leather, spoiler, premium wheels, 6cd. Bought for $7200 after taxes and title. Fun car to mess around with.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quick, reliable, fun to drive

    Cons: interior noise can become annoying on the highway

    Couldn't Expect Any More, Runs Great. — Good american car without the ridiculous price tag. 10 grand for 30,000 miles beautiful condition, not a scratch, interior perfect. MPG not great 18.9 on average. Does have a little quicks and has a cool metalic green color. My second taurus, never have had a problem. I think people get sucked in to thinking more money and foreign is so much better. WHY? I paid cash, no car payment and have great car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good price, good quality, and depenable

    Cons: little more get up and go would be nice

    Its Dependable... — Ok... so I think the car gets decent gas mileage. We have found that gas from Shell Gas Station works better in the car and gives it better gas mileage. I would say 20/city 24/highway. Yup good reliable car to drive. It kinda looks a lil crappy right now because the drivers side mirror is hanging on by a couple of wires.

    Pros: Gas Mileage..6 disc CD player...Dependable

    Cons: It needs new brakes
