2007 Ford Taurus Sedan SE Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my moms car and was my first car to drive. We bought it used with low miles in perfect condition. I figure it was probably a rental or company car. We have had no problems at all with the car and it now has 86k miles. We have replaced all of the tires, replaced the front pads and rotors, and replaced the alternator and that's it. Personally i think the car handles and rides well for being what it is. Performance is what you would expect with 153 hp but its actually not as bad as you would think. Brakes are also very strong. The only problem with this car is the transmission is definitely slow to shift both up and down and ive heard they sometimes fail early.


Best Features

Value, Interior room, 24 mpg, not terrible looking, parts seem to be relatively inexpensive, has never died


Worst Features

Radio and speakers, tranmission shifting feel, offer abs as standard, no automatic lights

2007 Ford Taurus Sedan SE Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with 49 K on it from the dealer in my home town. I have taken several long trips in it and find it to be comfortable to drive long distances. I have been avg 42 MPG (IMP) with it, on the Hwy with cruise on at 55 MPH. This car is terrific for long trips, loads of trunk space and fairly comfortable when loaded with 4 (adult) passengers.


Best Features

For the money, who cares about dated looks. It has all of the most important features associated with other class of cars in this class. A/C, Automatic, All power accessories, and ABS brakes. And it does what all my other vehicles did in relative comfort.


Worst Features

No complaints about this car, has not been to the shop once for any repairs.

2007 Ford Taurus Sedan SE Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my SE for a year or so now and it's still the best value of any used car I found. It's funny that the editors or Edmunds rate this car low 'cause it doesn't handle like a BMW or Acura but it starts, gets pretty good mileage, has pretty good acceleration, has a lot of room, good safety rating, kinda cool looking, American made, cheap parts that are easy to find, good visibility and head room, comfortable on the road. Sure it's not exciting or flashy but it's very easy to live with and does it's job very well. Remember your last high school reunion when you saw that girl you had a crush on and she was fat and divorced three times? SE is that smart plain girl you married.


Best Features

Reliability, room, cost to buy, American made.


Worst Features

Maybe better interior materials, but that would make it cost more, wouldn't it.

2007 Ford Taurus Sedan SE Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased in early 2007, with 20k miles. Have driven it heavily for 3+ yrs and have had one issue, clogged windshield wiper fluid pump (~$20 @ Auto Zone). Despite claiming to only have 153HP it performs much better, quick acceleration, good stopping power, smooth shifting, etc. A good, BASIC car for every day driving - ton of room for people/cargo, decent gas mileage, quick cooling ac, quick to heat in winter, cheap parts, and easy ability to perform your own maintenance. At 70k I've put on new tires and brakes, a new serpentine belt (15 min job if you know what you're doing), & stay up to date with oil changes/other maintenance. Good car, and a lot cheaper than equivalent.


Best Features

Space, cheap parts, cheap basic maintenance costs (brakes, tires,etc). Pay less than competitors. No it doesn't have that great of resale value, but you pay a lot less up front, so it evens out. Plus, you shouldn't buy a car for resale purposes, you buy it to own and drive.


Worst Features

Upgrade interior -- cheap paint on trim, basic dashboard design could use an updating. Don't take through a car wash, you'll see the 'swirl' effect in your car's paint right off the bat.

Review

Bought my 07 Taurus with 72,000 miles. I like my Taurus. Smooth comfortable ride. Roomy inside with high ceiling. Good gas mileage. Beautiful leather interior. Only problem is the radio. Lots of AM static. Dealership cannot figure out problem. My first Taurus had a better stereo system. My 1st Taurus, a 2000, had 209,000 miles when I sold it. Both of my Taurus' are very reliable vehicles.


Best Features

The decent gas mileage. The comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel. Radio controls on steering wheel.
