I purchased my Taurus in 1998 used with
24,000 miles. I was extremely surprised
with the power and handling for a
domestic car. On the highway the car
gets 30 miles to the gallon, and 20 in
the city. It's held up extremely well,
and is still going strong at 112,000
Power Moonroof, CD player really
accentuates a great factory sound
system. The 24valve DOHC engine roars
like its Mustang cousin - never a
shortage of power. Interior Design is
very comfortable with bucket seats.
The only negative in my book is the
4-wheel disc brakes. They tend to wear
out a little faster than other similarly
sized cars. Perhaps larger front rotors.
