2004 Ford Taurus SE

2004 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I put a considerable amount of miles on this car each year; mostly highway. Car has averaged 20mpg. For the most part the Taurus has been reliable, but soon after I passed 60,000 miles (warranty expire) I started to have nagging issues. I performed the regular maintenance, but mechanical elements still broke down (i.e. transmission, alternator, etc.)
I like the size of a full-size car with a relatively low sticker price.
You would think Ford would've identified all the bugs in the Taurus since it has been on the market for years. Seats wore down quickly, very noisy, tires did not last long, cannot use sun visor without blocking the entire windshield.
