It is a comfortable, smooth-riding vehicle that has plenty of trunk space.

I absolutely love my Ford Taurus. It is incredibly comfortable and easy to drive. The trunk is huge, and it is perfect for big grocery trips. My car is a little bit older so I do not have an Audio jack which is unfortunate, but I make do with the radio and CDs. It rides very well, especially with new tires. The only problem I have ever had with it was the heat/air conditioning acting up. One of the hoses needs to be cleaned about every six months because it gets clogged. As long as that is done, I do not have a problem with the heat or the air conditioning. The interior of the car is cloth, which I find nice. It does not get hot when the sun is on it, which makes driving it during the summer so easy. The steering wheel and shifter does get very hot, so I bought a steering wheel cover and that alleviates the problem with the steering wheel. There is not really a solution for the shifter, but I do not usually have my hands on it long enough for it to bother me.

I love my car. It runs smooth and is cute red.

My vehicle is a 2003 Ford Taurus. It's a red four door and an automatic gear shift on the right of the steering wheel. I bought it at about 1200 with the book value around 5000. I have owned the car for about 3 years and put about 3000 worth of work into it. I have put on new ball bearings and strut. Have put in a new fuel pump and alternator. I have purchased and changed out two new batteries. Have had about 3 realignments done and purchased two new sets of all season and than winter tires. I have a rust spot underneath the rear left door and the front right window doesn't roll down. I have changed the spark plug and the entire window button piece but something is not connected so the window doesn't pull down. All of the other windows work. I had done oil changes and gas treatments along with buying an air gauge for the tires.

Comfort and space are the best features of my car in my opinion.

I bought my Taurus used and it had very low miles on it. I wanted a 4 door car that was big enough for my family and it ended up being perfect. We all ride comfortably regardless of how far we are going. I have never had anyone complain about being uncomfortable in my car. It is very roomy and the seats are soft. The heat warms us up very quickly in the winter and the air keeps us all cool in the summer. One of my favorite things about the car is the amount of trunk space it has. I have never had a problem fitting everything I need to take on a trip or have never run out of space when loading up groceries at the store. I love the color which seems to change with the lighting, sometimes beige or tan and has been called light green in the right light.
