Our Taurus has the backup function, and it comes it very handy for me.

We have been very happy with all our Fords. Love that we have dual temp. Controls. The seats are heated and cooled (they get warm or cool even before the car does). We have not had any major problems with our Ford, as we keep all the maintenance done. Fords are the most reliable vehicles out there. The back seat folds down which gives us more trunk space, but we use it mainly for our Scottish terrier. The color is red and believe me it stands out and I love that.

My car is in excellent condition for It's age.

First of all, Ford's have always been very dependable for me. My current Taurus is the most luxurious vehicle I have ever had. I have leather seats (heated and cooled), 2 automatic driver seat settings, heated seats in the back, it is larger and comfy. The color and shine for this vehicle is beautiful, even for being 6 years old. The mileage is good, the maintenance is reasonable, and I have currently had no issues with my Taurus.

A smooth operator: this vehicle is beautiful and performs like a dream.

I love this vehicle. It has proven to be reliable as well as comfortable. The interior is spacious and it is easy to connect my phone to play music. You can also connect Bluetooth so that you can answer calls hands free. There is plenty of legroom for all passengers. I have not experienced any issues with this vehicle. It is great on gas and mileage and runs smoothly. This car is a great size. It is not too big or too small.
