Understated Design — Unless you have owned a Taurus I don't think you will appreciate one. This car rides amazing, has tons of space, gets good fuel mileage, and will also get up and go when you need it to. The interior has everything that you need and is easy to use.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, safe car

Cons: Seats not very comfortable

Less Than The Sum Of Its Parts... — I bought this car at a good price, so you get what you paid for... Even when my expectations were not high, it was still disappointing to get a proven model with weak reliability. The major repairs are: 1) Exhaust system - The catalytic converter assembly fails at the flex hose joint. Ford refuses to accept this as warranty. 2) Brake system - Spongy brake pedal, lack of feel, and brakes overheat easily even after performing upgrades. 3) Suspension system - It makes all kind of noises and the springs are prone to sagging and even breaking at the rear. The engine design is from the 60s/70s and it is a very noisy and harsh powertrain. It is an average car at best yet, I know Ford can do better...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good interior volume and fairly good sized trunk

Cons: Old engine design, hi fuel consumption, lots of suspension problems (mainly the rear), lots of body noise, weak brakes, low reliability, weak handling, and low resale value.

I Would Definitely Buy Another Tarus — I was always a Chevy girl but when I purchased my Tarus I was so impressed with everything about it that I will definitely buy another Ford. It's well worth the money. Plus this car is all american made!!!!! This is very important to me.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love everything about this car.

Cons: No Cons!

Don't Buy A 2005 Or 2006 — Too many problems. Something always needs fixing or replacing. I had this car for 4 years. Replaced the transmission once and it just went again. Water pump replaced. Replaced all 4 tires twice. Window switch and motor went. This car was reguarly maintained and only put an average of 10,000 miles/year.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Not much positive. Very average car when it's running well.

Cons: Horrible transmission

Good For Everyday Driving — I like that the car was given to us as a gift. Its really a nice car to drive, but it's not a luxury car. Thats what I really got my eyes on, Luxury cars....(BUICKS) It just needs a few simple things done to it. Tint the windows, buy new tires, thinking Michelin and get rid of these noisy firestone tires.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easy to drive, great for trips, good on gas mileage.

Cons: Hard to see out of the rear window when reversing. Noisy tires

Great Car — These are very nice cars if you are looking for something cost effecient and plain. There is not a whole lot of shock and aww to the vehicle but it will get you to point a and b with not issues

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very economical, do not have to put a whole lot of money into these. They are a very low maintenance car.

Cons: Plain looking other than that its great

Great Economical Car, Low Mileage — Handles great, good gas mileage, comfortable, easy to take care of, no repairs needed. Interior in great condition, exterior only has a minor scratch on front fender. Shows number of miles left before you run out of gas which is a nice feature.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Quality

Cons: Nothing, We are planning on leasing a car and need to sell this one first.

What Can I Say, It's A Ford! — Car was bought as wife's commuter car. Have had to replace the battery, alternator, starter, and a bad cylinder head over the past 3 years. Thank goodness Ford guarantees its work! (GM has the same guarantee on the cars they work on, too!). It is possible the car was not maintained well before we bought it. It does quite well now.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Roomy, comfortable on long trips.

Cons: Over 100,000 miles, be prepared to spend around $3,000 (over a couple of years) replacing parts on the engine.
