2008 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I've driven Mercedes, Infinity and Hummer for 20 years so I never thought that I would buy a Ford. But, when gas hit 3.50 a gallon, I wanted better mileage. I stopped at a Ford dealership and drove a Taurus. I couldn't believe it. It is as solid as a Benz and it drives like a dream. The second day I owned it, I drove 1100 miles in one day. I just never got tired. What a great car. Ford should be proud. The 6 speed tranny is so smooth. I am more than impressed.
My wife thinks the interior look like our Benz. I've gotten 35 MPG on a few tanks. (flat land on interstate) And, the seats are very comfortable. I love this car. We take it on trips and leave our expensive vehicles sitting in the garage. MP3 Plug is very handy.
Since I have to name something: The sunshades could be bigger. For a few minutes a day, there just isn't enough shade. But, that is such a small issue. The car is great and I love it. And, so does very hard to please wife.
