It's A Good Everyday Driver — We bought this to rack the miles up, it's purely a commuter. It gets great gas mileage, not just for it's size, but in general. It has plenty of power and it's comfortable. It isn't the prettiest car out there but she's not bad, and the price was right too.

Pros: Gas mileage, price

Cons: Fit and finish, potential reliability issues

My First New Car — This was a wonderful car, I enjoyed having it and it was my first sunroof. The car was kinda loud on the highway compared to the other one we had. It was a very nice car

Pros: Looked expensive, nice seats

Cons: Loud on the highway

Overall:

An Absolutely Shocking Car! — I had the misfortune of having one of these as a hire car last year. The one I was given had a fairly low mileage on the clock but felt like it had been severely abused. The steering wheel was off centre and the handling felt borderline dangerous. The steering was unresponsive and it felt underpowered too. I wouldn't recommend one of these to anyone. There are much better cars availble in the USA.

Pros: Roomy and quite comfortable.

Cons: The way it drives, build quality and poor performance. Fuel economy isn't too good either/

Very Good — I have had two things go wrong with the car. The car would not turn over one morning. And the Distance to Empty does not read right on my message control board.

Roomy , Comfortable, Handles And Drives Nice. — This is our 1st Taurus andnere very happy with it. We bought it used but it's in near perfect condition. We have taken it on 300 mile ( one way ) trips and are satisfied with the gas mileage we got about 26 mpg that includes city & hiway miles. The car is very reliable even in Colorado winter driving conditions. Overall we are very pleased with it.

Owner for 0 years, 7 months

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: Roomy, Comfortable & Reliable

Cons: Low ground clearance, a little hesitation off the line.

2006 Ford Taurus Review
For my 2006 Ford Taurus, its a very decent car. It does have over 230 xxx miles, but it runs smooth, and all it needs is some slight brake work, and then its good to go.
