Review

I have been a Ford man my whole life. However, the last 3 Fords I have owned have been severely problematic. The older Fords we have are excellent and have been a great value(00 Taurus, 02 F150), however, this new Taurus has been a disaster. First, the clearcoat is cracking and the paint on the trunk was poorly executed. Ford has offered to repaint, but I am afraid they will make it worse. Next, the interior materials could be better. I barely rubbed my finger on the faux wood and scratches galore! Ridiculous! Now, and apparently this is a know issue, the trunk(when closed), rubs on the bumper and the paint is rubbing away. Also tearing up the tailight. Unacceptable! My last Ford.


Best Features

Sync, color(Ginger Ale is beautiful), most of the styling, trunk space, gas mileage is fantastic(took it on a 6-7 hr road trip and still had a 1/4 tank!), tan interior(Ford has gotten away from many choices and it is a shame, glad the Taurus still has the option), interior design(mostly), Love the high roof.


Worst Features

If you are going to use fake wood, at least make it durable. Unpainted plastic skirting is hideous. Paint it! Speaking of paint, learn how to paint a vehicle and teach your workers how to inspect. This is my second Ford since 2010 with a paint defect. Rattles..car is starting to already have them...unacceptable this day in age. Brakes...did anyone at Ford drive this vehicle before they released it? Brakes are too weak. And please get rid of the shiny black plastic on the b-illars. It scracthes waaay too easy and looks awful quickly.

Review

I have put 2,000 miles on this car and still don't know what to think. From the beginning the goodyear eagles 19" have been a joke, it took 10 tires to get 4 that would balance, huge disapointment however dealer was great and made it right. The ride seems to be quiet at times and real noisy at others, road, wind, tires?? i don't know. however the ride is soft the seats real comfy and all the amenities top notch which leaves me to wonder why the crappy tires. anywho a gtreat car to short lease but that maybe it, still its better tan a cadillac cts.


Best Features

interior, backup camera


Worst Features

tires, tires, tires.
