As a single 40-year-old male, I
resisted the idea of buying a wagon
initially. The prospect of almost
doubling my fuel mileage, while
actually gaining cargo space gave me
the push to try it. Having lived with
it for more than a year, I wouldn't go
back to an SUV ever again. The Taurus
wagon handles so much better, gets so
much better mileage, holds more stuff
and is a much better value than any SUV
in its price range. I'm a true
believer, though I still wouldn't call
it a babe magnet.
Great A/C and stereo, virtually
Use better-quality brake rotors, which
have a tendency to warp. I've had them
machined twice already.
