I bought my Taurus in September '06. It has been an OK car, although it has not been trouble free. It has needed a new radiator, rear struts, new speed sensor, and new power steering pump, altough it is not unusual for these kind of things to happen to cars with more than 100k. The 3.0 L V-6 is good but lacks punch. Flimsy, shaky interior but a very comfortable car, runs well.
Comfortable seats, well designed interior, huge trunk.
Interior is cheap, though well laid out. Bigger backseat, more power. Sound system stinks. Could have better reliability
