2010 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Had an '08 put 60K on it, great car lots of room. '10 is basically same pan with zoom zoom styling. Ford forgot to put a back seat in this version. Too bad. Last year had limo- like room in back, this one has same leg room as Fusion. Roof chop WAY too aggressive. Has passť "Gangsta" look. It's juvenile and restricts outward visibility to point of dangerous; like being in a machine gun bunker. Rear headrests block so much that they will cause cut offs on highway. Center console big enough to bury a body in. Why? So what's good? Engine & tranny (carryover), handling not bad for a big car, good mileage for this class, much improved seats (front). Last model was great. Ford sold out for the bling.
Handling pretty good. Great seats (front) for long hauls. 28+ mpg on highway. Fit and finish is very good. Ford has gotten this right for several years now. Keep it up. Drivetrain very flexible and responsive for a family sedan. Shift points under hard acceleration are spot on. Cabin is very quiet.
Really really good radios are cheap. No excuse for the base junk you've installed in a 28K+ car. Back seat in a car this big is a disgrace. Whack the center console down to size, and give me storage! SUNGLASS BIN!!
