Taurus SEL Wagon
By neilwoida on
2004 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
24 Valve V6 has plenty of power. SEL
has upgraded interior - qulity and
comfort are very good. Is affected by
crosswinds more than even my minivan.
Does not handle as well - tuned for
soft highway ride.
Overall, a solid value - but the time
has come for an updated chassis.
The 24 Engine is terrific. Adjustable
brake and accelerator pedals, along
with power seat and tilt steering
equals a very comfortable seeating
position. I founf the interior
materials equal to most mainstream
Ford will introduce the 500, based on a
Volvo chassis platform, which should be
a huge improvement to handling. The
Taurus is not a good handling vehicle.
