After owning this vehicle for a while, I still love it. It's perfect for us. I shopped a variety of sedans with V6 engines before deciding on our 2016 Taurus SE. We could not be happier with the initial quality and features relative to the excellent price. With sedans somewhat out of fashion, we found that it was a great time to get one.
I've driven Fords since 1978 (EXP) - driving both cars (T'birds mostly) and SUVs (Explorer, Flex & Expeditions). The Taurus is a 4-door Thunderbird - love the way it handles and quick response to the pedal. I thought I would miss the Flex but I have just as much room and storage area (trunk is huge) in the Taurus. Ford Sync 3 is a big improvement over 1 and 2. Really enjoy driving it.
I Bought this SE new in January using the outstanding rebates offered by Ford. 7000 miles into it inclusive of 2000 mile Round Trip to Wilmington NC (From Boston Ma). Gas Mileage is way above expectation Avg 26 with mixed driving, The V6 is plenty powerful to get around slower traffic I usually set CC at around 60MPH, but ran it at 70-85 MPH on the aforementioned RT. The electronics are fine if you're not a Techno Wiz The hands free for phone and audio are all I need at age 57. Sound quality is fine controls are easy for CD and Radio, Handling and ride is fine on highways and and town roads. It's not a Lincoln but it sure is a comfortable sedan with Cloth Power Seats. I always get a thrill when I'm stuck in traffic next to SHO or SEL knowing the cost difference . VERY HIGH Recommendation. If people care they are built in USA VS Mexico, I still look at it in Parking Lots VS other Full size sedans and love the Style and the Color (White) Everything is the same from my last update, I have had 0 trouble with this sedan and would recommend, or buy another Taurus. Only surprising Drawback ( To Me anyway) is the Depreciation, alot more than I expected. Only Buy, if you plan on holding onto it, Resale, Trade in Value goes down fast.
