2008 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


My 2008 Ford Taurus SEL AWD is a great upgrade from the 2003 Lincoln LS Sport V8 I used to drive. The Taurus has a lot more room in the cabin, a much bigger trunk and AWD. The AWD makes a world of difference: in rain and snow the Lincoln LS was a death trap. Unfortunately the finishing of the trim of the Taurus is not up the Lincoln standard but I guess that is to be expected. I was able to install factory navigation myself so that was a nice bonus. I also bought the Taurus really cheap so I got a lot of value for money (definitely an under appreciated car)

Best Features

Cabin space, trunk space, integration of steering wheel and audio, AWD, height of the driver seat (you see more further ahead).

Worst Features

Trim finishing should have been more professional, the gear box does not always shift as smooth as it should be (known issues).

Can you give me an estimate of your highway gas mileage?
