The used '05 Taurus SE that I had purchased from dealer had approximately 25,000 miles on odometer upon delivery. Vehicle looked and felt brand new. I'm very satisfied with the firm but smooth ride, comfort of the power drivers seat, great base stereo/cd system, and especially the very quick acceleration that the Vulcan V-6 has on the open highway. It's not your 24 valve Duratec engine that reeks for traction from a standing start to finish, but a very respectable engine within its own design. I had a slight shimmy in front wheels upon delivery, but proper wheel balancing corrected that problem. Build quality appears second to none, and so far, I'm very pleased with the vehicle and my purchase.
Exterior perimeter lighting, great sounding base stereo/cd system, power drivers seat, power and durability of the Vulcan V-6.
Exterior color selections, choice of tires from factory (Continental Tires) a minus, more inspiring instrumentation gauges and dash panel design. Headlights appear to be a little weak for night-time driving.
