It drives well, tracks down the road very confidently, and has a good steering centering ability. Car feels solid and secure. The car is quiet at highway speeds. There are many features that come standard on this model: keyless entry, strut hood supports, 16 inch wheels/tires, liftgate opening glass, rear window wiper/washer, roof rack, 50/50 split folding second row seats, AM/FM stereo cassette, air conditioning, automatic transaxle, and floor mats.
Favorite features are the ABS/traction control, side air bags, and the keyless entry that turns on the exterior lights. Also like the eight passenger seating capacity, cargo cover, and wide door openings.
Wish all Tauruses came with automatic headlamp control standard. The digital odometer should come on when the driver's door is opened instead of requiring the ignition key be in the start position. The interior lights could have an off setting as found on many minivans.
