2008 Ford Taurus Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I purchased a year ago, and 22,000 miles later, this has been one great car. This is a large car, and for the class, the ride and handling are better than expected. It is no barn burner, but acceleration is very good, and the ride is very good. The car is comfortable, quiet and rides well. I almost bought the Avaolon, but I wanted AWD and back up sensors in a large car. The saftey factor and visibility, and the fact that the ride and quietness rival the Avalon won me over. The car has been cheap to own, and trouble free. Coming out of German cars the last 10 years, this is a nice change. I like the bold looks, even with the over the top use of chrome. Mileage on highway is very good, city OK
Hands free communication, AWD, ergonomics, visibility, lots of car for the money, ride, quietness, roominess, no squeeks or rattles typical of other domestic cars, the touch of luxury for the price (wood steering wheel package, analog clock, seat memory/heated, back up sensor, nice wood grain trim)
Telescoping steering wheel would be nice, but seating position is good. Audiophile system is good with decent bass for most, but not great (swapped the subs for additional speakers and added sub, amp, and eq). Add front bumper sensors, memory for front passenger, improve city mileage, michelin tires
