After auto accident with 2002 Chrysler 300M, obtained the 2009 Taurus as a rental. Fell in love immediately!! Test drove all other American-made sedans in this class along with a few 7- passenger crossovers. Nothing compared in interior room, fuel economy, features, and price! Three adults fit very comfortable with 41" leg room in back seat, quiet and smooth ride, classy appearence, loaded with features, get 28.9mpg on interstate @70mph using cruise.
Fuel economy, Sync system, USB plug for iPod, roomy back seat with lots of leg- room for teenager + 2 car seats, lots of storage in cabin and huge trunk, chrome accents.
The only feature I miss is there was not an option for stereo controls (volume, station change) on steering wheel.
