2010 Ford Taurus SHO SHO 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Had 3 muscle cars back in late 60s, early 70s. The SHO is the luxury version of those. It's lightning fast for a big car and handles amazing easily. Every guy who looks at the interior says one thing, What a Cockpit! I did have to add some side detailing as I didn't want a sleeper I wanted everyone to know it was a SHO. Pickup is amazing smooth giving the fact it's turboed. Had a turboed Mazda before with front wheel drive only & was dangerous. Love the soundproofing although miss the rumble of a true muscle car. Love the Sony sound system. Wanted a car built in America so coming out of Chicago was very important. Gas mileage is only negative although knew it going in. All I can say is WOW


Favorite Features

Styling is great, a real head turner. Love the all wheel drive with the turbo no violent steering issues. Quietness of it is amazing. Driving on the highway at 70, no road noise at all. Favorite feature is of course 365 HP.


Suggested Improvements

Headrest lean forward too much. Vision out the back is not very good, but rear sensing helps. Decal package option. I had to have it done myself. Who in there right mind would want to hide the fact that it's a SHO. Nothing outrageous like the Chargers just something on the rear side panels.

2010 Ford Taurus SHO SHO 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

We bought this car last year 10/09. Have had it in the ford dealership for same problem 4 times, transmission downshifts at all different speeds. Feels like transmission is going to fall out of car. Can hear big thunk and feels like car downshifts. Is anyone else having this issue. Dealership can not figure this out, very upset and unsafe. Every time we bring it in, it does not do it for dealership


Favorite Features

can not love a car you do not feel safe in.

Review

This car is very nice overall, but the headrest are a joke. Extremely annoying, I took mine off altogether. It has bad blind spots, and for the size the rear seats are puny .


Favorite Features

Safety. Rain sensing wipers.


Suggested Improvements

Adaptive Headlights with Night Vision. Rear Center Consul. Larger Rear Seats. Parallel Park Assist. Front, Side, and Rear Parking Sensors. Better Audio Option.

Review

The SHO Taurus is amazing - incredible job by Ford. I've had Lexus, BMW, Infiniti, and Acura - shockingly this car competes in that group at $10-$15K less. If Americans don't consider this car they are snobs. First, it is QUICK - this car has the zoom-factor that will make you grin. The integrated SYNC, Sirius, and voice controls make the navigation and satellite radio a must have and set the bar for the industry. At first sticker seems high for a Taurus, but with the options you get it is extremely well equipped relative to all luxury sedans. GO DRIVE ONE!


Favorite Features

Absolutely love the adaptive cruise control. Nav system with Sirius radio/travel link is awesome. BLIS works like a charm and a great safety feature


Suggested Improvements

I'd be nitpicking to come up with flaws - it does lack snob appeal.

Review

This car is amongst the best in the world. I couldn't imagine having anything else. It is missing some key safety features and luxury features to. The Headrest are plain up retarded though. They are insanely uncomfortable for some people.


Favorite Features

Everything. Its not perfect though It should have heated, cooled, and massaging rear seats and headrest to. Heated and cooled steering wheels are almost mandatory in this class.


Suggested Improvements

Lane-departure warning,Roll Stability Control,Occupant-sensitive Airbags,Dynamic Brake Control, Adaptive headlights+night vision,Knee Airbags,One Touch Windows+sunroof,front sunshade, Self Park Capability,refrigerator,Dual TV System,Front+Side Cameras+sensors, heated+cooled cup holders, all under 60K
