I always swore I would never own a Ford. But, after driving a Blazer gas hog decided to try. Interiors roomy, especially if you have members of your family at least 6ft. tall. Rides smooth, quiet, and full of power.
I love the cupholders, thats a major plus. No fear with passing as this vehicle has some major power. Overall a heavy duty vehicle and I (knock on wood) fortunately have not had any mechanical problems with it. It has made me change my opinons about Ford vehicles, at least the Taurus.
After owning Hondas I can't think of any improvements for the Taurus. Wonderful vehicle. Improved gas mileage would be my only suggestion.
