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


We bought this car to replace our 04 Tribute. It gets marginally less gas mileage - about 22 overall vs 25 for the Mazda. But it has much more room, is much more comfortable, rides more smoothly, and carries more cargo/passengers. It all - a hit, a palpable hit. Like other raters, I wish mileage were better, but this is a large vehicle, rather boxy, with a big engine. If you need 30 mpg, get a smaller car...or wait for the hybrid.

Best Features

Effortless driveability. Smooth shifting 6 speed AT hardly ever makes its presence known. The 3.5 L engine is a winner.

Worst Features

Make the rear seat console easier and more intuitive to open. Also, the console is not flush with the floor so you can't lay long object flat without balancing them on it.
