"My wife likes to drive this car, that is why I still have it. Visibility is great, you can see out the back when backing up, and it handles great in traffic. I guess that is why we are slow in getting a newer one. Thank you"

"This is the best car I have ever driven. My husband is over 6' tall and it fits him, even in the back seat! I'm only 5'1" and it fits me just as well. I love the options such as the memory seats that remember the settings for both of us. Lots of get up and go. I've had my car for 5 years and only have had to replace brakes and regular oil changes. Great gas mileage for a car this size. Huge trunk and plenty of leg room for all!"

Great Car

"This body style Taurus is not only nice looking and comfortable, but it has plenty of room in the cabin and trunk!! As a big guy, it's fits well and is roomier than one would think. Mine is sage green and has a modern looking front on it even though it is 7 years old. Love the front grill, the fog lights, the Mercedes style rear lights, the trunk size, and the speed. It has the 24 valve DOHC DuraTec engine which has 263 horsepower. Love to sit at a light and have some loser behind me think I'm a slowpoke. When I leave him in the dust, I get some real satisfaction!!!!"

Pros: "Spacious interior/trunk, FWD Does great in snow"

Cons: "Gas (18 city, 23 hwy), Manual headlights, Parking"

"I purchased this car about 6 months ago for $9000 with 53k miles. So far it is great. It did better than expected in the snow (great traction, did not slide, went up hills/bridges with ease) this was important to me. Being somewhat tall (6' 2") I was looking for a vehicle that was spacious and had high ceilings. The Taurus gives me plenty of room between my head and the ceiling (8+ inches), the drivers seat is also higher off the ground than other cars I have driven. Both of these aspects are comparable to a small suv/crossover. The back seats are very spacious and are comparable to a Lincoln town car. There are only a few negative aspects to this vehicle. The headlights are not automatic (they stay on when the car is turned off) and you need to turn a switch every time you turn them on/off. My previous car had automatic lights so this took some getting used to but is not a big issue. Another negative is gas mileage. Other reviews have said they get up to 28 mpg, but I disagree. I drive about 60% of the time on the freeway and 40% city. Typically I get about 18-21 mpg on average, and never more than 23 or 24 mpg when I am driving solely freeway. Lastly, the Taurus is a full size sedan with a somewhat wide turn radius. A lot of the time while parking in a spot I need to back up and straighten up. Parallel parking is also much tougher if you are used to a smaller car. Overall great purchase and would definitely recommend to buy."

"A great car, perfect 10 in every way and I had no idea it would be as comfortable, reliable, and good in the snow as it is. Bought it off lease in '09 with 16,000 miles on it and now have nearly 100,000 mid '15 and NEVER had an issue. It had two tires replaced around 80k and it's about time for the other two so that goes to show if you're good to this car it is awfully easy to get along with. More stylish than it's given credit for and anew awesome interior and ride quality. Average of 22 mpg, but the ride is superior to a Honda or Toyota without a doubt and I bought this the same day I tested an Audi A6 and have 0 regret and plans to buy a newer one when the time comes but it's paid for (a lot easier to do than, say, that Audi) and why jump the gun if I'm still 100% satisfied!"
