I've owned my third Taurus for just shy of 5 years and I love it. Bought it brand new. I have 80,000 miles on it and have only replaced tires at 60k miles; no other repairs. Still has original brakes which I consistently have checked and they're still good. Now that's amazing!
This car is extremely reliable and I highly recommend it. My previous Taurus had an issue with the heating core which was a costly repair, but this one is still going strong. Love the restyling of the 2010 model and will probably invest in another one.
Gas mileage could use improvement. I get less than 20 miles to the gallon and do mostly highway driving.
