2012 Ford Taurus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Only had my Taurus since October 2011. Seemed to be a pretty good car and was looking forward to winter driving now that I have AWD. Only problem is that the first cold morning after I had the car outside all night, the windows were stuck and I couldn't get them open! Finally, one window in the rear opened, but the other three were still stuck. Is this a feature I glossed over and it's actually designed to keep the cold out??? Really Ford - what genius team of engineers is responsible for this flaw??? I can't wait to see what it takes to get this fixed. Also, the cup holders are so tiny I can't find a cup small enough for these crazy things, except maybe a dixie cup. Strike tw


Best Features

Heated seats, AWD, Sony stereo, body style.


Worst Features

Windows that open in the winter and larger cup holders.

2012 Ford Taurus Sedan SEL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


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.

2012 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I just got out of a 2010 Taurus with about 71,000 miles and into this 2012 and there is very little noticeable change. I even have it in the same color? The good news is there was little wrong with the 2010 model and I am hoping to have the same luck with this car. The position of the power outlets allow me to use the rear one for my inverter that powers my laptop, the one in the center console powers my iPhone so I can listen to my music, and the one up front powers my Zumo 660 GPS unit so I do not gt lost during the day. The car rides great, the music system sounds great, plenty of room in the trunk, and excellent power. I will be back in 2014 or 2015 if they continue to be this nice.


Best Features

I love to use the aux link to my iPhone 4 where I use XM and music rather than pay for it on my car and be limited to only listening to it in my car. Huge truck where you can easily fit up 4 sets of golf clubs and gear. Pots of power adapters in the car.


Worst Features

I would love to have had SYNC standard on the full line including my SE.

2012 Ford Taurus Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Bought this car a month now. Price close to what we got from Edmunds. Overall the car rides good (especially long drive) but the front view is limited. My wife is 5'4" and she has a hard time seeing due to the dashboard being too high. Steering abit stiff for local driving with a lot of turn. Console is hard to understand. Too confusing. We seem to get slight better milage than report on highway.


Best Features

Love the extra cup holders (6 in the front).


Worst Features

Better frontal view and simpify console. Outside looks great, but feel cheap when step in the car.
