This is my 4th Ford. Prior to this, I
owned a Bronco, 1997 Thunderbird and
a '97 Lincon Mark VIII. The Taurus
SEL was a step down from the Lincoln,
so I must admit that I thought the
interior was rather nice for an entry
level car. I was disappointed with
the comfort of the front seats(used
for long trips). I was also
disappointed with the fuel economy.
Overall, the car drives very well and
has a good deal of power at high rpms,
but could use a little more
effeciency. I have 30,000 miles now,
and I have a strut that went bad,
other than that, trouble free.
