I really love my new Taurus. I have an SEL FWD, took it on a highway trip yesterday and the ride is more smooth and quiet than the Mercedes C Class I just traded in for it. Needed a bigger family sedan for hauling kids around and the Taurus definitely delivers in this category. I can easily fit 3 car seats in back, or 3 adults for that matter. Performance is great with good acceleration both from a stop and at highway speeds. The car corners well for such a large sedan.
All the tech gadgetry, the Synch feature, the blue/purple interior running and floorboard lights, free Sirius satellite radio (for 6 mos). The interior styling and size.
Poor visibility to the rear and a large blind spot.
