I bought my Taurus about a year now and have been very happy with it. I have not taken any trips and do all in town driving averaging about 20 mpg. The ride is comfortable and inside and trunk are roomy. Since I bought this car at a used car dealer, the prices have actually gone up about $1,000 asking. Not bad for what some call a throw-away car.
Easy controls well placed, comfort, gas mileage and room.
It is a bit underpowered off the line but since it isn't intended to be a sports car, it works.
