Purchased this car used with 9k mi. Car has been relatively inexpensive to maintain, remains solid and has provided unfailing dependability. Currently has 130k mi. Not an exciting car, but is solid and safe feeling. Smooth highway ride. I call it my 4-wheeled sofa. Has the tried and true base 6-cylinder as I was a bit wary of the more powerful 24-valve 6 cyl. Factory brakes were poor, but once after market brakes put on, no problem. Adequate performance, very useful for family trips, 18-20mpg city, 24-25mpg highway on regular gas. Still running on stock transmission with no signs of problems. Dash, upholstery, and paint remain in excellent condition. Plan to keep for 2 more dependable years.
Comfort. Solid, safe feeling. Dependability, versatility, room. Excellent paint finish. Good steering feel for a conservative Detroit wagon.
Ford should've kept updating and modernizing the Taurus/Sable, rather than allow it to get stale and outdated. There seems always to be a place for value priced dependability.
