With a son in college and some big
tuition payments to make, I decided to
step down from a 2000 Lincoln LS to a
Taurus SEL. The LS was wonderful and
very hard to give up. To ease the pain,
I got the SEL Premium configuration
with all of the options (Silver
exterior with Dark Charcoal leather
interior). While no match for the LS,
it is a great car for the money. It has
good power for its class and an
impressive array of creature comforts.
It handles well when driven
aggressively and is smooth down the
turnpike. The duratec is know for
taking some time to break-in. Even so,
I got 27 mpg within the first 1,000
miles. Also can say enough for the Mach
Mach sound system, digital heat/air
controls, leather interior.
