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


I was going to buy a Ford Escape or a Ford Edge, but my son said to try the new Taurus. I bought the Taurus SEL FWD, which is almost 200 lbs lighter than the Limited AWD. The Taurus 3.5L V6 engine with its 263 HP is as fast as my old 2004 Marauder with its V8 and 302 HP, but with 18/28 MPG! Its also just like a baby Lincoln. Probably the best sedan for the money around, considering its roominess, performance, handling, ride quality, quietness, and its build quality. I suffer from partial paralysis in my legs, so I need a car that I can get in&out of more easilty. The new Ford Command Seating allows me easy ingress/egress. I feel like a normal person again when I drive our new Taurus SEL!

Best Features

Performance. Ride quality and handling. Roominess. Gas mileage. Luxurious feeling of all the trim, leather seating, etc.

Worst Features

Add a tilt/telescope strg whl, like in the Edge. Build an SHO version. Offer Blazing Copper paint (I love this color). Offer 8-way power pass seat also.
