1997 Ford Taurus GL 4dr Sedan
Review
The Taurus was my first car. I bought it from the rental fleet at 22k miles. Also, this car initially served as a training vehicle for my wife and my friend, and it took abuse from renters and us pretty well. Key buying decision factors were size, safety and style, but the Taurus turned out to be very dependable and with timely maintenance required very few repairs over the years (battery, tires, and struts).
Favorite Features
Roomy - fits 6 people if needed. More baggage capacity than Cherokee or 4Runner. Low maintenance cost and unexpected dependability. Style - both interior and exterior. The radio/stereo console design is pretty cool. "Power everything" - nice for the price. Safety ratings are great.
Suggested Improvements
The curvy backs of the seats are not comfortable for tall people on long trips. A small cushion solves the problem. Fuel economy to horsepower ratio can be improved.
