Good for the price. Good gas mileage for its size. Great room around trunk, in front and back seats. I get an odd rattle/humming from under the hood. Cons: hard seat for traveling, poor expected resale value; doesn't ride, handle or stop as well as top competitors, and a few times acted like it stalled when quickly accelerated.
The on board PC (i.e. systems check). Good stereo ... it does have a clean look though.
Hope they improve the new 2006's after all of our comments even though Taurus is discontinued!
