I traded in a 1997 Audi Quattro wagon
for the Taurus. You might ask, why get
rid of an Audi in favor of the Taurus?
We owned a 1987 Taurus for 12 years and
put 153k on it. We loved that car! As
far as I'm concerned, the new Taurus
drives better than the Audi and is more
reliable. We got the 24V Duratec engine
and it hauls!. We're getting better
than 24 mpg in mountain driving (we live
in CO). Fit and finish are beautiful.
Duratec engine. Auto climate control.
Auto rear view mirror. Personal safety
system. Traction control.
Definitely rear discs. Powered lumbar
support on driver's seat. Our 87 Taurus
