2010 Ford Taurus SHO 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)
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!
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
I'd be nitpicking to come up with flaws - it does lack snob appeal.
