"The car has been a problem since I purchased it from the dealer six years ago. The paint is peeling it is rusting all over. The engine will not stop squealing always getting worked on. Never to buy a ford again. Buy a Toyota they are worth their money you spend on them."

Has been very good car!

Pros: "safe, has a big front end, and comfortable ride"

Cons: "lousy turning radius, poor visibility"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5

"Turning radius is awful. Heater and a.c. went at 85000 miles. Visibility is poor, front window makes me feel like I am driving the space shuttle. Has a very comfortable ride and is a solid heavy duty car. It is a very safe care that is why I bought it. If you get hit in this you will likely walk away from it unscathed unlike other more cheaply made modern cars. I have lower back pain and certain vehicles exacerbate this. This car is super comfortable to drive. No backaches when you get out of this one."

"I bought a 2006 SEL in late 2012 after my 1998 Sebring Convertible was rear ended and totaled. I bought the 2006 Taurus from a dealer I know and it had 100k miles when I bought it. Just over 40k miles later, through two very harsh outside winters, more than a dozen 1000+ mile road trips, this car is still running great and I've had no problems with it. Driven this car up through the rocky mountains, through blizzard conditions, through intense rain storms and it handled it all very well. I kept up with the regular maintainance (oil, fluids, tires, breaks, etc.) and this car ran perfectly with no mechanical issues to date. The interior is very comfortable for in town driving and long road trips. It is spacious enough to hold 4 6' tall people comfortably along with all of their luggage in the trunk. Good instrument panel layout, comfortable steering wheel, easy to use climate/audio controls. Exterior is in pretty good condition after two years on a college campus and through many harsh storms and poor weather conditions (some minor dings, dents and scratches). I keep up with waxing and detailing my car, so I would expect nothing less given the work I put into keeping it nice. Honestly, I do want a new car, but I'm having a really hard time justifying getting rid of this one. It is reliable, comfortable, moderately efficient, spacious and works for everything I need a car to do."
