The 2000 Ford Taurus is an excellent vehicle with plenty of space.

I love my 2000 Ford Taurus! It is comfortable and everything is easily accessible as I am a small woman and about 5'7" in height. I have had very few maintenance issues. I love my car air conditioning, my radio and CD player, my spacious trunk makes grocery shopping easy, I have plenty of cup holders in the front and back seats. There's also plenty of legroom for my tall car riders in the front and back seats. My Taurus is great on gas. It is very reliable and always starts even in the middle of winter. I do have an issue with rusting. The Taurus rusts around the bottom of the doors and near the back tire fenders. Under the hood of the Taurus things are pretty accessible. It is easy to refill fluids and get to the battery.

The family vehicle you have been looking for.

I think this car gets my daily chores done quite effectively! It has good gas mileage and is easy to load my family into. The repair is fairly easy as well considering it is American made and easy to find parts for. I have found the parts are also usually easy to locate. I would recommend a Ford Taurus to any family. I do have to say it is not the best looking ride on the street but overall I am pleased with it is performance. The motor does not have any extra power but it does have enough to get daily needs and appointments taken care of. It not something I would choose to travel in though even considering it is roomy.

Reliable car that sticks it through.

This is a very reliable car. We have had it in the family for years, and it has made it through multiple teenagers driving it. We used to have another of the same model and year, and the only reason it gave out was because it wasn't up kept and didn't have the fluids it needed. The only problem is that every once in awhile it experiences a strange jolting, usually on the freeway, that we cannot explain, and so far the mechanics cannot either. Other than that, it is a great car. Very comfortable with lots of room.
