The serious fault with the 2011 Taurus Limited is that it as ALL electronic. That means that if the battery dies with the doors locked, you may not be able to exit the vehicle. There is no manual override for opening the doors from inside. The same is true for the trunk, where most keep jumper cables.
If you live near water and a collision sends you into a lake, river etc because the battery fails, or vehicle catches fire,
you will have to break the windows to escape.
Maybe not a problem in Kansas, but I live in SW Florida. While a situation did happen, it fortunately was on land.
Everything else is on a par with or exceeds my last vehicle, a 2001 Seville STS, which was also "loaded"
with accessories, GPS, Nav, etc
For safety, there must be an override for the door locks and while not a safety issue, for the trunk as well.
