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.
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.
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.
