2009 Ford Taurus SE Fleet 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Driving position is one of worst I have had, pedals too close, steering wheel too far, lack of seat side support, low beams are terrible, bad torque steer, subject to wind gusts, noisy engine under acceleration, whiny transmission shifts that passengers ask about, radio display disappears unless you have the dash display up full, can't rest arms on rests and reach steering wheel but can't reach the 10 and 2 wheel positions because wheel is so far away, you end up leaning forward to reach the top of the wheel to turn, pushing the wiper sqirter can turn on signal lights or brights, most anoying is the intrusion of the front wheel wells into the foot wells - uncomfortable
good acceleration, comfort ride but you are so uncomfortable in the seat you cannot enjoy it, leg rests against large center console that makes a sore spot on your leg, mp3 plugin is good, roomy back seat
driver's seating needs major work, or at least adjustable pedals and telescope wheel to help, low beams are dangerous, such a bad seat position, hard to like anything about the car - waiting out the lease and celebrate the day it's gone
