2008 Ford Taurus Limited 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Wow, what an improvement over the old jellybean style Taurus that lived only at rental car fleets and some taxi fleets! It's beautiful to look at, angular but not like a CTS, rounded but nothing like the old one. It has 'presence' and attracts looks, something other than the 1986 Taurus couldn't do. A VAST improvement over my last Ford, a Mercury Mistake, err, Mystique with the disappearing transmission. Well done Ford!
Style, incredible rear seat space, better than a Rolls Royce! Trunk is a cavern, you could put an SUV to shame! Ride height, like a small SUV. AWD is a bonus. ALL buttons do light up at night, amazing! I hope they don't burn out!
Sun visors need extensions on them. Too many bland looking buttons, only 1 knob on HVAC/Radio! Impossible to use buttons with heavy gloves on (very cold up here!). Turn signal has strange mother in law clicking sound. Door interiors too bland/uniform in color. Needs a separate wiper control stalk.
