2005 Ford Taurus Wagon SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

bought my '05 wagon new, replacing a '95 volvo 960. the volvo was my dream car become rude awakening, so i wanted an affordable, reliable car. i got one. i keep the mobile one fresh, am careful with the transmission, complete stops before shifting, etc. when i change the trans fluid, the old looks as clean as the new. 84,000 problem free miles so far. smooth ride, quiet cabin, ice cold air, wonderful stereo, cheap to insure, and invisible to cops. she is garage kept, and i always park her at the far edge of a lot, so she looks new. last oil change, my mechanic offered to buy the car. i'll drive her 'til she drops, then i'm buying a ford flex


Favorite Features

great balance of size, comfort, safey and economy


Suggested Improvements

ford has improved the care immensely

2005 Ford Taurus Wagon SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car is so roomy and quiet that if you're not driving it, you will fall asleep. The trunk is huge. I feel a lot safer in this car than our previous one.


Favorite Features

Roominess, comfort and all around reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy. 20 city - 28 highway.

2005 Ford Taurus Wagon SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have had 30 days. Great features -- moon roof, MACH stereo, great ease of audio and climate systems. Good highway mpg = 27. Only issue -- at 900 miles appeared to have transmission fluid leak, but dealer said it was over filled at factory. Hopefully no more remaining issues.


Favorite Features

MACH audio, auto climate control.


Suggested Improvements

This is one of last Ford/Mercury wagons -- assembled 10/04.

2005 Ford Taurus Wagon SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car is very reliable, a good performer, and well made. As good as any Honda, Toyota, or Nissan. I liked my first one so well, a 1998 model, I went out and bought another one. I didn't even look at anything else. My daughter bought a 2005 Nissan Altima and it doesn't ride any better than the Taurus, and cost a lot more money. The buttons on the radio stick badly in cold weather on the Nissan.


Favorite Features

The best feature I like about the car is I have the one without the console in the middle of the seats. That gives you a lot more legroom and it doesn't make you feel like you are glued in one spot.


Suggested Improvements

I would like to see adjustable rear seats in the back for passenger comfort. Seats that would allow you to recline a little for comfort.
