Nice car for the money

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


Traded in the minivan for a sedan, mainly to improve gas mileage. We were averaging about 20 mpg with van, and about 21.5 on the Taurus after about a week; not a whole lot better, but at least it's not worse. The interior of the Taurus is nice with two-tone leather and a moon roof, definitely nice extras - makes losing the extra space in the van a little easier to take. Really like the vehicle so far - smooth ride, good acceleration, and good brakes. It has the Flex Fuel engine, but there's only one station in my area with e85 fuel, and they charge the same as regular unleaded, so that wasn't necessarily a selling point for me. Would recommend purchase of this vehicle.

Best Features

Leather seats, moon roof, outside temp/compass on dash, console setup in front, fold out arm rest in back seat, and huge 17 cu. ft. trunk.

Worst Features

More fuel efficient engine standard - to compete better with Accord and Camry.
