2004 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan w/Duratec (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
We have had two 2004 SES's. We owned the first one for 5 weeks before we were hit in the rearended by someone doing 50+ MPH and we were stopped. The car saved our life. I think the safety of the Taurus is fantastic. We have had the second one for 3 years. The Duratec engine if fantastic. Wonderful road car, very reliable. Still has original brakes at 80,000 miles, replaced tires at 55,000. No problems with it. 20MPG in town, 25MPG on hwy. We love this car!
Reliability, comfort, Duratec 24V engine.
Automatic headlights, front power windows creak (both my Taurus' did that), wish it would last forever.
