My family has owned several Taurus's and Sable's. All but the '86 Sable were great. All were bought new, all lasted through my parents driving, and me and brother's "Hot Rodding" teenage years. My most recent one is a 2003 SES. It is a nice BASIC family car. If you want luxury buy a Lincoln LS. Have had no problems with the car, other than a couple recalls. The bucket seats and floor shifter make you think its a performance sedan, but it's NOT!. Great to get groceries and go to work in. Took it on one 500 mile trip, and immediatey realized why people with two kids get an SUV. Oh, if you buy one new, plan on driving it until the wheels fall off.
Spoiler...ah...ah...not a whole lot to be excited about. The 0% financing was great.
Bring back the SHO. Pontiac has a supercharged Grand Prix GTP, Chevy has a supercharged Impala SS, why not put a V8 back in one? Well maybe in the 500.
