Comfortable ride, tons of trunk room, spacious interior, simple to operate, no fancy and expensive bells and whistles that break down and are costly to fix

My 2005 Taurus has a huge trunk, which is important to me because I am always carrying stuff - groceries, lumber, yard sale finds, household goods, and more The backs of the rear seats fold down so I can carry even 8 or 10 foot long 2x4s, fence posts or rolls of fencing, for example. The ride is still comfortable even after 13 years and over 170,000 miles, there is plenty of legroom for rear seat passengers, and the rear bench seat is deep enough so you can sit back and relax. We have had relatively moderate repairs and replacement parts needed, mostly tuneup, tires and brakes. I have two complaints. One would be the catalytic converter and tailpipe, which needed replacing just a couple weeks after the warranty expired! The other would be that it comes with a "donut" tire, like just about every vehicle these days, I replaced it almost immediately with a regular spare tire, even though that does take up some trunk room, so it's easy to replace a flat tire on the side of the road and keep going.

A great running car with minor problems for all the years I have owned it.

I have always loved my Ford Taurus. It has always been reliable and I have had very little trouble with it compared to other cars that my friends own. It is still in great shape except some rusting underneath because of salt in winter. It has over 100,000 miles on it but still runs great. I would certainly buy another Ford if I could afford it, hope rust does not get much worse that it will not pass inspection. I always tell my friends how great my car is. It is still very quiet, no squeaks or noises inside and certainly a very comfortable running car. I have had quite a few cars in my lifetime, but this is my first Ford which surpasses them all. I hope the newer fords are as good as the older ones. I would not think twice about buying another ford.

The car has a lot of problems but is reliable.

Well first of all I have a older model car it has a lot of problems I do not know if its from how old it is or how the previous owner took care of the vehicle. But I have a lot of transmission problems my car jerks and shakes while my foot is on the break I tried a tune up and stuff but it never helped its less shaky when I put transmission fluid in. I run out of gas pretty fast I haven't tried fixing it yet but I will soon. My power steering is hard I stride power steering fluid only helps for about 10 minutes. But other than that it gets me from place template I know its fixable just have to get the money to do so the a/c and heat works just fine great breaks.
