2008 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I bought a used '08 Taurus with 1K miles. I think that this is a very underrated car. The interior is well finished with lots of features. Power is decent and fuel economy is better than expected. This is a lot of value for a VERY affordable price. It is a better car than Camry and Altima. It is very spacious in both interior and trunk. Drive one before you buy Japanese and you might be in for a surprise.
Good engine performance/economy. I like the space and price for what you get. The interior is much nicer than Japanese competition with leather, dual A/C and CD changer.
The car needs a telescoping steering column for tall drivers. Styling is bland but the new changes for 2010 will fix that.
