2007 Ford Taurus SE Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I've owned '88, '94, '97,'02,and now the '07 Taurus. The '02 was the best overall. I like a combination of reasonable size, safety, and overall economy of operation. I'm averaging right at 27mpg overall with most of my driving on the interstate. I did better on my '02 with the 24V engine. My current '07 has 3 front seatbelts which allows for six passengers, something many newer sedans do not offer. If I had the purchase to do over I would find the SEL model for some better interior quality and for extra features however this seems to be a good car so far. Only one issue so far: front driver side window went down but would not come up. Only happened one time. I think something may be loose.
Roomy interior. Good power. Seemingly good value for the price.
Being discontinued I hope the reliability hasn't suffered by shutting down the product line. Time will tell. Would really like to see 30 mpg highway at 65 mph.
