2008 Ford Taurus X Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I heard the Taurus was back. It is one sweet ride! The engine has good power & the ride is comfortable. A bit heavy on fuel, but it is a heavy vehicle. One pet peeve: The keypad mastercode is NOT user changable! It is permanent! Protect this code or one may face a security risk. Even if you program another code, the master code still works. Thieves may not be able to steal your car, but can steal what ever is inside. Ford needs to make the mastercode user changable and resetable in the event one forgets the programmed master code. You can change the module to get another code, but it costs around $700 cdn.
There's only one name in tires and that is Pirelli. As far as I know, Ford seems to be the only North American company to use them on some of their cars. Heated seats, moon roof, power hatch,
Don't like integrated key and FOB. It makes key too bulky. User programmable master code on keypad entry. resetable to factory default if one forgets the user master code.
