2010 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

The only thing that I really have to complain about is the ride quality. I have driven a lot of cars with "performance" suspensions. This Taurus rides a lot like an SUV. Ford, you need to do some more calibration work. Shock rebound is weak. Roll stability under road undulations is just like an SUV. If the target market was to satisfy an SUV owner, you hit the mark. If the target is to reach buyers of a Honda, BMW or Mercedes, you are far off the mark. Rest of the car feels a lot like the Volvo S80 platform. Good European feel but not up to the best of Germany or Japan. Don't get me wrong. This is the best Taurus I've driven. It's at 9/10th ready.

Favorite Features

Steering wheel. Good feel and grip. A driver must have have input on the design. Ice Blue lighting with lit pointer... perfect. LED front driving light - excellent "bling" factor and works well.

Suggested Improvements

Calibration of the suspension. Put better tires. The GoodYear's are too stiff. Good for mileage and tread life. Bad for ride and handling qualities.
