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

Review

Although this it's technically my mother's car, I do most of the driving and this car is amazing! I had a '92 Taurus and this car is light years beyond it. The engine is smooth and powerful (you can't hear it running, I have to look at the tach to make sure sometimes). Very good fit and finish as well, interior is comfortable but my only gripe for the whole car is that the driver's side needs more room for your feet side to side. AWD is great, I was driving through snow banks, where my old FWD got hung up every time, with ease. No wheel slippage that I could even detect. Perhaps the best thing is the "command seating". You sit high and can see almost like you're in a pickup, it's great!

Favorite Features

Smooth, strong engine. Seating position is great for egress and exiting as well as visibility. AWD is very reassuring in slippery conditions. Interior that is nice and comfy and doesn't feel cheap. Back seat, I am 6' tall and 380 lbs. and I can sit in the back seat with the fronts all the way back!

Suggested Improvements

More foot room on driver's side! (plenty of leg room though).
