2008 Ford Taurus X SEL 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I have never owned a Ford product before but was drawn to the safety features and interior room, Very roomy for kids and gear. I think this car has a lot of Volvo in it but at a Ford price. Car feels very luxurious and solid on the road, too. I don't understand why Ford is not promoting this car more-it's a bargain given the features it has.
Virtually no road noise. Smooth engine and transmission. Looks good and has loads of interior room. Airbags galore, AWD, Dual climate control.
You would think that a 3.6L V6 would get better than 15 MPG on average. Maybe it will get better with time as I only have 1000 miles on the car.
