Great for the Cost
By Older but not dead on
2007 Ford Taurus SEL Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Had 36K mi when bought and in like new condition. Rough handling on most Ohio roads, but good on improved roads. If I featherfoot it the fuel economy is unbelievable. 24 local/27 mixed/and 32 highway. Roomy interior and trunk. It is nicer than my '98 Sable but cheaper looking inside. The only problem I had was replacing the bolts on the subframe assembly. Ohio roads, go figure. Best feature was the price, $10,800 over 15 months ago. I even Carfaxed to see why and that came up clean.
FUEL mileage!!! Ability to seat 5 comfortably. Not to hard on the eyes.
Ford seems to have taken care of those when it introduced the 2008.
