Poor mileage/interior cabin noise
By Frank on
2008 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I am flabbergasted, all these people stating outstanding mileage. it doesn't sound like my Ford Taurus SEL 2008. I am a conservative driver and this car has not given me l8mpg in the city I usually get about 14 mpg. When I drive out to Valley Stream (Nassau County) I might get 17 mpg, averaging 55 mph. Did Ford put the wrong nameplate on this car? (Joke)
This car is comfortable, the interior and trunk space are great. Regarding the quietness in the cabin, only on pristine roadways. In the Bronx we have many roads that are not too pristine, the roadway bumps and noise invade the cabin mercilessly, which makes listening to the radio next to impossible.
Seating up high, good visibility. Engine compartment, can see very easily what liquids need filling.
Wish that the doors would automatically lock after several minutes. As it is now the doors close after a 1/4 mile when driving.
