Traded 2000 Sable. Taurus steering requires very little effort - like the old power steering days. Very comfortable. A very quiet car: No tire noise, very little road or wind noise. Love the big trunk. Good engine performance. Transmission pauses a bit when cold. On straight, flat open Interstate - got 28 mpg with AWD. Like position of information center buttons. Sirius radio nice to have.
Cloth seats are very comfortable and give a nice snug feel when driving.
Transmission may need tweaking. Slight hesitation when cold. Drops out of 6th gear on slight grades.
