2003 Ford Taurus SEL Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The car is a good overall value; if you
are someone who’s only interest in
driving is to get you from point A to
B! The engine is strong, if only the
brakes and suspension were designed as
well. The braking is a very weak part
of this package with the suspension
close behind. The steering offers
virtually no feedback for road feel.
It you are a driver get a Passat! If
you have to buy American, such as I,
then this is a good deal. I have
driven American all my life, but my
last car was a base 1995 Jetta with the
weakest engine you can imagine! The
cheap '95' Jetta right now feels more
solid and is more fun to drive than
this brand new car!
Ford - Design your suspension and
brakes similar to your European and
Japanes counterparts, then you'll have
a true competitor.
