My car has a brand new stereo.

The Ford Taurus runs very well. It is great on gas mileage. The interior comfort is great, mine is from 2004 and has very few problems since I have gotten it. The only real issues I have had with mine since getting it is the exterior paint is bubbling and wearing away but that is because of the age and as well as the salt where I live. The trunk is very big, I can fit a baseball bag and golf club bag easily in the back. If I were you buying this type of car I would get rubber floor mats because of the material inside of the car the mats can wear through pretty quickly. Overall I have had very few problems with my Taurus and it is a very affordable and reliable car.

2004 Ford Taurus smooth and relaxing.

The quality of the car is second to none. The luxury of having power everything makes for easy use. The Taurus has such a balanced and smooth ride whether on the highway or inner city. Very comfortable and reliable in any weather condition. I find that it has just as equal performance as any other vehicle that is on the road today. It is not just a reliable car but also a very family friendly and safe vehicle to purchase and ride in. It also has access to a sunroof and capabilities for a trailer for hauling.

2004 Ford Taurus. Red exterior. 97, 000 miles.

My Ford Taurus if very reliable. It has a very comfortable interior. Tauruses are synonymous with getting great mileage as well as being able to hold up over time. My specific Taurus is from 2004 and it has held up great. Minor issues we have had has included leaks in the air conditioning unit as well exhaust oil leakage. The paint depending where you live may wear and chip mine does but I am in a place where I drive often drive on salt roads. All together the Ford Taurus is a great and comfortable car.
