Green. Beige plush interior. Spacious trunk. Safe. Radio with cassette player.

My car is wonderful! I have had the car for a little under seven months and I am so pleased! The only issues I have experienced so far are electrical, mainly the door sensors and lights, but as it is an older model this is only to be expected. The car is equipped with adjustable pedals, which I find very convenient as I am not very tall and am uncomfortable with sitting too close to the wheel. The car drives very smooth, is very sturdy and reliable. The only other issue I face is that she is a little bit of a gas guzzler, but this does not pale in comparison to how comfortable and safe I feel operating it. This is the second car I have owned and by far the best despite it being older and a little more loved! I was a little skeptical purchasing a Ford model at first mostly because of past recalls. I am the type of person to stick to specific brand or manufacturer for purposes of comfort and security. I am also typically inclined to purchase larger vehicles for safety purposes because I am very small, and feel unsafe in tinier vehicles that are typically not built with much bulk. This car feels very secure to the ground, and I feel that if I got into an accident that I would be entirely safe. Another feature that I enjoy is how open my vehicle is. There is so much room! There is even an optional middle seat in the front. Overall, I am very satisfied with my vehicle.

Having a v8 engine, my car gets good gas mileage. It is safe and easy to drive.

I enjoy driving my taurus, it is very comfortable and easy to drive. It rides well and there is plenty room for four adults. My taurus has cruise control, but mine happens to be broken. I really like the color of my Ford taurus, it is a nice taupe color with a neutral interior. To be 17 years old, it is in great shape. There are no spots or tears in the upholstery. One thing I would like to change is the radio. It is an older stereo with only a cassette player and the radio. There is no auxiliary in port to plug a cell phone of mp3 player into for additional music. But I have learned to live with that little issue. If you are looking for a good used car, i'd definitely look at the Ford taurus. I think you get a lot of car for your money, and they have a very reliable reputation.

Made me a believer in fords.

I never much for ford vehicles, until I purchased my 2001 ford Taurus from my daughter almost 8 yrs ago..My Taurus has been a very reliable vehicle with only routine maintenance needed,I have been so very thankful for making the decision to purchase it, it is a very comfortable ride with plenty of room..Although it is an older model it still runs and sounds good and does not have any exterior issues either, like rust and such. With routine maintenance, oil changes, tires,and so on my car still runs as it did 8 years ago when I purchased it, I have no plans of purchasing another vehicle anytime soon..No need to.
