Rear leg room!

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


Getting 26mpg at steady speed of 62mph. I assume those getting better mileage have 2wd version. Performance adequate. Main reason to purchase this car was that leg room in rear seat, even with driver seat back, is excellent. We were unable to find any other sedan with enough leg room that even average adults can ride in the back seat for extended trips. They all seem to have yielded this market to mini-vans, which I don't car for. Can't figure out lack of automatic headlight switch. Even our $10,000 cheaper Chevy Cobalt had that! Now we are out of the habit of turning on lights at dusk and catch ourselves driving with them off at unsafe times. Nature's ugliest shade of brown on dash.

Best Features

Rear leg room! AWD in a sedan for road safety. Seems to be a very safe design with side airbags, handling features.

Worst Features

More comfortable seats, ie: lumbar adjustments. Auto headlights! Different shade of brown on dash. Easier sequence to disable seat belt chime. Requires 9 seat belt connects/disconnects within so many seconds!
