2008 Ford Taurus X Eddie Bauer 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I routinely buy or lease a new car every three years; I have had a lot of cars over the years. The Ford Taurus X is my favorite so far. The ride is smooth, the handling and braking exceed my expectations, and it is so comfortable.
My favorite feature is the ease of entrance and exit. My 92 year old father has difficulty getting into and out of other cars; they either sit too high or too low. The Ford Taurus X is just right. He loves the bar on the passenger side of the dashboard (What a great idea!!).
A passenger seat that rotated toward the door would make this a great choice of vehicle for aging baby boomers or people with disabilities.
