The trunk space is great if you travel a lot.

One of my favorite things about my car is the cruise control. I travel a lot back to IL and it not only makes the drive easier, it saves on gas, and helps keep my arthritis from flaring too badly. It also gets decent gas mileage. The trunk space is amazing. We have met, my husband, my teenage daughter, a toddler, and 2 dogs. We need a lot of space to fit it all when we visit family. It has held up pretty well over all the years. What I don't like are the leather seats. over time they have cracked and stained from skin oil to spilled drinks. They are ridiculously hot in the summer. 3 of my tires had to be replaced because the rims were messed up. Got that fixed and recently, less than 2 years later, found out that the rims need to be replaced again. That might even be an issue with the rims that we got as replacements and not so much the manufacturer's fault. The middle front seat, though I like that it folds from seat to armrest with drink holder, it is kind of a pain to clean since if you spill, which I am sure everyone does at some point, it gets underneath and it is awful to clean.

Best reliable and functioning car I have had to date.

My Ford Taurus was handed down to me and has never let me down since then. For being a 2007 its still running wonderfully. Only problem I've personally had was transmission acting up at about 130000 miles. A change of fluid did the trick. I rely on this car for everyday work and weekend adventures. I really appreciate the display screen that tells how many miles until empty. Gas mileage could be better but for a 2007 it seems good. I get an average of 18-20 miles per gallon. All chairs are comfortable and the back seat has plenty of room for our toddler and his car seat. The truck is huge and can hold large amounts great for all our adventures.

My favorite automobile "betsy lou". I like her. She maroon great on gas.

I love my Taurus. It gets great gas mileage city or open road. It's very comfortable with bucket seats in front an arm rest between the seats that lifts up. My car is an automatic which is the only thing I would change if I could. It's been very dependable since I have owned it. I am the second owner, the first passed away. The car sat up for eight years and all I had to have done was replace a fuel pump and clean the gas tank and add tires the others dry rotted. I recommend that anyone looking for a reliable car, that has a very roomy trunk,, comfortable seating and great gas mileage the Taurus is the best.
