First 3000 mile review
By WStaso on
Vehicle2008 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
ReviewI traded my 04 Mustang GT in for this car (I needed a back seat) so I know power. The Taurus will accelerate decently if you put your foot down with force--but the mpg really suffers. The Limited series has a quality feel to the interior and the tech system is impressive, especially with the nav and synch. The exterior styling is less impressive, but I was after more space and the car delivers that well. Gas mileage is tricky. I was actually getting better mileage with my GT in town. On the highway I notice that if I drive steady at 70 mph I get about 22.5 mpg; cruising at 65 I get about 24.5; and at 62 (tried today) I get about 26 mpg. Not sure what speed gets 30 mpg--55 maybe?
Best FeaturesSynch and voice controls, Nav system, auto lights, USB for zune, interior space, dual climate control
Worst FeaturesLateral supports on seats, better city mpg, different placement for wiper and high beam control stick, nav system higher up on dash
