Taurus X - good car but
By Rae on


2009 Ford Taurus X SEL 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Feels solid, comfortable, flexible, enough muscle for family care, very safe, fair mileage (18 mpg), nice ride, low wide stance very attractive. Found reliability problems with battery dying, trans computer malfunctioned disconnected trans while running, front end strut connectors poor quality. Been driving Fords since early 70's. Not as reliable now. Wish Ford focused on reliability longevity and had more comfortable steering wheel (bigger diameter please with thinner ring).

Best Features

Car feels solid has excellent family safety features, good solid soft riding feel, trans pays attention when you slow down to remember speed automatically, rpm provides good gas mileage feedback, very flexible and has wheelchair/walker friendly doors for easy side transfers.

Worst Features

Make them built to last at least 10 years (forget the phoney green recycle stuff-"if it last longer I'm not filling up the trash dumps faster"), put in better batteries like Die-Hard at the onset, bigger steering wheel for easy turning, otherwise love the car.
