Bought my Taurus used 2 years ago, have had no problems or expenses other than routine maintenance. Leather seats, sunroof, 24V V6, alloy wheels, a nice looking, comfortable package. Have averaged over 28 MPG over the last 30K miles, get better than 30 on the highway. Seats could be a little more comfortable, and interior trim is kinda cheap looking, but so far I have no complaints. Doesn't hold value well since there are 60 gazillion of them on the road. Very smooth on the highway, a little more wind noise than some sedans.
Good sound system, gas mileage, trunk space, reliability.
Front seat support, interior trim, wind and road noise, resale value.
