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

"I got this car from a former Farmer's Insurance employee (they used these as company cars) at around 55,000 miles. I'm at 90,000 miles now and haven't had any problems. The original battery is still in this thing. I had to change out the rear breaks, as they were grinding -- but other than that I haven't touched a thing. Very smooth ride, extremely spacious, and very safe. Considering what I paid for this, I recommend this car to anyone who wants a high quality vehicle w/o the high price."

"It's been reliable easy driver for over five years. The only problems have been batteries, on third Ford battery since new, but were covered by battery warranty. Sync leaves a lot to be desired though, I still haven't learned hot to make a call without repeating names several times, maybe the latest versions are better. Good options for the price."

Pros: "roomy, pick up, drove great, reliable"

Cons: "SENSOR INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION"

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

"I only had one issue, a sensor in the transmission gave me issues at about 90000 miles which was something you might expect at that high mileage but it was within the transmission...something so simple as a sensor took the mechanic all day and 2,500 dollars to fix...the transmission shop said it was the dumbest thing Ford ever did. It was time consuming to fix..thats why it was so much money...but I loved this car!!!! Other than that nothing but oil changes breaks and tires!!!! SO RELIABLE"

Love this car! I'm buying another Taurus!

"Current company program lucrative enough to upgrade to newer version. Likely buying new taurus. I'll drive the Edge and the Escape just to check them out. I've had so many Taurus', hard to imagine driving something else. This car has complete and total service record from local professional shop. Any buyer would clearly see this car has been serviced on time, every time. 75% plus of 173k miles are highway miles."
