"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."

This was a fantastic car

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."

"I love this car, it's ride, acceleration and comfortable leather interior. I have driven this car long distance and it was just an awesome experience. The stereo system, SIRIUS Radio and 6 CD changer and MP3 dock is sounds great as well. I hope my next vehicle is just as dependable and comfortable."

"We purchased this vehicle in North Carolina to drive in the blue ridge mountains, where the all wheel drive worked wonderfully. We lived up a long steep gravel driveway and never had a problem climbing it. We then relocated to California. The drive across country was so comfortable and enjoyable in this vehicle. The sound system is excellent, as is the air and heating system. The only problem we have had with it is the transmission, which was very costly to repair. Also the navigation system needs to be upgraded, but it is too costly for us at this time."

"this has been the best car I have ever owned, 181000 completely trouble free miles, only repairs done are 2 sets of brakes and driver heated seat gone twice. AWD is amazing, pushes through snow up to bumper no problems"
