I love this car!
By Chris Jeffries on


2008 Ford Taurus X SEL 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I got the car new and now have over 50,000 miles on it. It has been better than I expected based on reviews of the Freestyle. The engine is very powerful. My wife has an 08 Merc Mariner and I hate road trips in it b/c I miss the power of the X. Another surprise was that I have taken it off- road in CO and never gotten stuck. I don't recommend it, since the ground clearance is like a sedan, but the power and the AWD didn't let me down. Drives great on snow and ice. I love the way the 2nd and 3rd rows of seats fold flat. I have heated leather seats and they have been great. I also love the rear proximity warning when you're about to hit something in reverse. Not one maintenance issue yet!

Best Features

Engine, rear proximity warning, handling, reliability, AWD, rear seats.

Worst Features

The roof rack is flush in the back, so I had to be creative to mount a rack on it.
