2005 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Just bought a former rental car with 18,700 miles. Good value. Not as fun or comfortable as my 1991 Taurus SHO with leather (best seats ever had), but I also paid $7k less driveout 14 years later. Pretty comfortable except - I tried really hard to find a comfortable seat after having a lack of thigh support on '96 Olds 88 & '00 Buick Park Ave. The Taurus fooled me on the test drives (see below). MPG does not appear to quite what I hoped but not too bad. Checked last night using info computer. With A/C and cruise control on - 55 mph=27 mpg, 65 mph=24.5 mpg, 70 mph=23 mpg.

Best Features

Good looks at a good price. Pretty comfy, seats 5-6. Good acceleration.

Worst Features

My gripe/request to Ford to check, improve on other models. The left foot dead pedal is too close for me. I'm 5- 11. After 10 minutes I start fidgeting. The driver's floor is not flat so it's not comfy to rest foot on either. It slopes up near the seat. A moveable/locking dead pedal would be great!
