Reliable and good value for the money

2006 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
This car was NOT my first choice but I have been pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. While not the sexiest or most stylish of vehicles, it is a solid performer. The ride is smooth and comfortable, the engine is quiet and the interior cabin and its parts all seem pretty solid. Gas mileage has been very good. For the money, a used one of these with low mileage is the way to go if you are looking to save some money while still being able to drive a decent size car that has some "bells and whistles" (i.e. leather, moonroof). My only complaint is with trying to park because it is hard to judge where the nose of the vehicle is when pulling in a parking space.
Smooth, comfortable ride, quiet engine, very easy to drive.
Dashboard is HUGE, handling/suspension is a bit soft.
