This is my first Taurus, and overall is
a decent package. Since new, it didn't
idle smooth, ran rough, and surged when
stopped in gear. After 400 miles Ford
replaced half of the fuel system and
fixed a rattle in the front inner
fender. These are common issues. The
first 4k or so I never got better than
20 MPG, but now I get 19 mpg city/ 24
mpg highway and average 22 mpg
overall. The biggest gripe I have is
with the seating. After driving long
periods of time gives me back trouble.
The root of the issue is the drivers
floorboard. As it comes back to the
drivers seat it narrows and leaves
Better keyless entry than my Lexus
(more lights come on and stay on, great
remote range), terrific center console,
easy controls with nice features,
respectable mileage, decent ride and
handling. Overall, lots of well laid
out features for the money.
