Had our Taurus only a little over a month, but have already taken it on a 5 day driving trip to the mountains. It handled great, we even used the shift paddles coming down some of the steeper grades. They were easy to use and safer than riding the brake. We averaged 26 mpg which was better than expected. Passengers in the backseat commmented how comfortable they were and that they could see out well. Love the hands-free SYNC system. We used the directions coming and going, even though we had a map. It helped us even find a Walmart. Huge trunk, nice height for seating, you don't fall into the car. Everywhere we go, we always get comments on what a beautiful car it is.
Comfortable, but sporty ride. Convenience of everything to the driver (feels like you're in a cockpit). SYNC system. Large trunk. Exterior lighting when you unlock doors.
Trunk lid is a little hard to pull down without getting fingerprints all over. Had a problem with the headrest poking me in the back of the head at first but after some playing the seatback it's better now, wish there was a way to adjust the headrest forward and back.
