Great car but......

2011 Ford Taurus Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


The serious fault with the 2011 Taurus Limited is that it as ALL electronic. That means that if the battery dies with the doors locked, you may not be able to exit the vehicle. There is no manual override for opening the doors from inside. The same is true for the trunk, [where most keep the jumper cables].
If you live near water and a collision sends you into a lake, river and the battery fails, or vehicle catches fire, you will have to break the windows to escape.
That said I am impressed with the amount of electronic features on this Taurus Limited. It does lack a tire pressure psi readout monitor and oil pressure guage, but the radar type warning system and back up cam are noteworthy. The features rival other manufacturers' luxury cars.
