2008 Ford Taurus X Limited 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

We purchased this vehicle after our 2005 Ford Freestyle lease was up. The Taurus X is the Freestyle with a lot of improvements. After 4 months of driving it, I am very pleased with our purchase. I thought I would miss the smoothness of the Freestyle's CVT but I don't miss it at all. The Taurus X's transmission is very smooth, the ride is very quiet and the engine is very peppy.

Favorite Features

I can see out the rear-view mirror with DVD player in use (improvement over Freestyle). Love the two-tone interior and heated leather seats. My husband loves the ride. It's very car-like. It doesn't feel like you are driving such a large vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Better mileage please! I get the same mileage with my FWD Taurus X as I did with my AWD Freestyle. I was hoping for better. Fit and finish isn't perfect. There are some gaps in body panels. Dual climate control is confusing as is Triptunes for Ipod.
