Ford Taurus: An economical fit for your family.

This is a reliable vehicle that will comfortably seat four people, but can seat 5 total. My husband is tall and it fits him well. He doesn't feel squished while driving. The seats are leather and are comfortable. It was Bluetooth capabilities to allow for hands-free driving. It only holds about 14 gallons of gas, but has excellent gas mileage. It also has a large trunk, which makes it possible to pack everything needed for a trip or for kids sports, activities, etc. It has required very little maintenance other than regular oil changes. Overall it's a great vehicle and meets the needs of our family.

Very good car for the price

The Ford Taurus is an OK large car. It has a large trunk and a cushy ride, and the available SYNC 3 infotainment system is user-friendly. However, it hasn't been redesigned in nearly a decade, and that shows. Its interior looks and feels older than what you'll find with rivals. The Taurus has below-average fuel economy and a short list of standard features, and its seats are surprisingly tight for a vehicle this size. Although both of the Taurus' V6 engine options are adequate, the base V6 isn't impressive.

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.

- Tina Y

A solid sound system, strong engine and is equipped for driving long distances.

The Ford Taurus has been a great car for us. It is big enough to take the grandkids on short adventures and comfortable for my wife and I to take 5 hour plus road trips. I would recommend the Taurus to anyone. As far as durability, we lift approx. 1 Mile off pavement and the Taurus has held up extremely well. The engine runs out very well and the overall comfort of the vehicle will exceed your expectations.

Ford Taurus: reliable comfort

The trim package is what drew me to it. The car has over 100,000 miles but drives very well, it has electronic seats and windows, as well as a built in trip computer. The Ford Taurus has 4 doors and is the SEL trim package. I find it very reliable. Above all else, comfort is the strongest feature of this car. The car is soft, yet supportive and is a very smooth ride. I thoroughly enjoy driving it

- Nathaniel S

Heated leather bucket seats.

Leather is so soft and heated seats are perfect. No bad blind spots in the rear window, easy to change lanes. Very smooth and quiet to drive. Excellent on fuel, road trips are a breeze with great mileage and cruise control on the steering wheel. Bluetooth, radio, volume control all with the touch of a finger on the steering wheel as well.

- Chandra F

It is reliable and has not given me any problems.

There are no problems with my car. It is really comfortable and it is just what I need. It is nothing too fancy. It is just a useful car and I wouldn't trade it for anything. It is big enough for me. It is not small and it is not huge. I love my car. There is no point in trading my car or getting a new car because it is reliable.

- Brittany F

Ford Taurus, nothing special.

Uncomfortable. Ac vents do not point correctly. Seat is average comfort. Coin box in front of shift is hard to use. Glove compartment is too small. The car seems reliable. I bought it used. The radio works ok but is nothing special. The thermometer for outside temperature was always a few degrees off and then it broke completely.

- Joseph S

Comforts of the Ford Taurus.

The vehicle has a great interior theme with the cockpit style console. It is a large vehicle for most drivers which as to a comfortable ride. Road noise when driving is exceptionally small, and does not washout your radio or conversations. The vehicle has a smooth handling and can pick up and go if you really need to get going.

- Whit R

A lot of people I come across say that they not know the Taurus is spacious.

I like that my vehicle sits up high because I am tall. I like that it has a big trunk so I can load bigger items. I also like that the back seats fold down so I can enter the trunk or use the extra room for long objects. I also like the fact that it rides smooth and with all the horsepower you can hardly feel the car moving.

- Jessica W

Because of its performance and style I highly recommend the Ford Taurus.

My 2012 Ford Taurus is very dependable. It is silver in color and the style is so unique that people often mistake it for a Lexus at night. I haven't had any major problem in the six years I have had it. The only problem I have had was the starter; which I had to replace. It is easy on gas and takes to the road like a champ.

- Mary R

One of the best cars ever.

The ford Taurus is a pretty neat, compact car with plenty of gears and gadgets that makes it perfect car for a family of 4. It drives smoothly and it does not break down a lot as long as its maintained. It's a smooth ride sitting inside, so smooth that if you have babies they will not wake up at all during the car drive.

- Kyle C

The car is super comfortable and reliable.

I really enjoy this car. It is extremely reliable and sturdy. Although it is easy to speed and the break is squeaky. I also like the seats, they are super comfortable and the whole are is very roomy. The trunk is also extremely roomy. The ac cools down the car super fast, but the heat can take awhile sometimes.

- Stephanie K

Ford Taurus has the best room!

I have absolutely loved my vehicle! Other than the regular maintenance, I haven't had any problems at all. It has been a very reliable vehicle. We love having the extra space in the trunk to haul everything. We love the extra room having the stadium seats in the back. There's plenty of legroom up front as well.

- Chloe-Ana D

Taurus, safe and reliable. Family car.

It reliable and dependable I love the way it looks and runs so smooth. I haven't had to do any major repairs just normal wear and tear repairs. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone and everyone. Because I love my Taurus. Since I don't have to spend money on costly repairs I have more money for my family.

- Suzette L

Ford Taurus sure has some great qualities.

My vehicle requires for everything to be looked at in a shop. This includes putting oil into the vehicle and its expensive. It rides smooth and I like the lighting inside the vehicle. You also have the option to change the color of the lights. The back windows has a sunscreen that you can put up as needed.

- Crystal W

My vehicle is sporty, roomy for my whole family, repair maintenance is minimum.

I love my vehicle. Besides the basic maintenance I've had no repair issues. I have owned the vehicle for five years the performance has not changed, I would recommend this vehicle for families. There is enough leg room and both the front and rear seats my husband and I are both right around 6 feet tall.

- Regina S

2012 ford Taurus sho twin turbo. 0-60 in 5.2 seconds.

The ford Taurus sho is an exciting and thrilling sports sedan. It has a twin turbo v6 engine that does 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. It has massaging front seats for your back and bottom. But not both at the same time. The shifter goes into manual and paddle shifters give you the feel of driving an exotic car.

- Kyle L

Great car, great value, couldn't ask for more!

I love my 2012 Ford Taurus . It is a fun comfortable car that is great for getting around and fell as having a little fun. There is ample space and cup holders. A huge trunk is great for shopping and hauling around stuff. The maintenance on this vehicle is not too bad for it being a sports sedan.

- David K

I would recommend the Taurus to anyone looking for an affordable vehicle.

I love my Taurus it is very roomy for a car. The trunk is huge I can fit a cooler and two suitcases. It has excellent gas mileage we spent only 100 to go on vacation to the outer banks this year. It is large enough and high enough to go great through the snow. I haven't found any problems yet.

- Laura S

Once you drive or ride in a ford Taurus you will be amazed .

This car is wonderful ! Very reliable, just make sure you do the regular oil changes & you'll have no problems. It is very comfortable & spacious to all passengers, even in the back seat. This car rides and feels like I am riding in a Cadillac only without the Cadillac price tag .

- Mary L

Fast driving V6 white Ford Taurus

There are a few things that don't work great on the car. I like the way it looks, don't love it. Drives fast. Needs paint work. The sunroof is good. The speakers are good. I like the trunk space. Lots of room. Smooth ride. It is a noisy ride through. There is a lot of headspace.

- Kyle R

Ok car but wouldn't buy again.

Bad breaks, bad electric system and gets terrible mileage. The car drives nice but shudders in the front end. The computer system malfunctions and drains the battery. We like the car but need to get another before the mileage gets too high. Air conditioning system could be better.

- Geoff T

Family car but still a little sporty.

Comfortable seating; dual climate control, reliable; no major problems; smooth, comfortable ride; enjoy all of the technological features such as: Bluetooth, backup camera, navigation, satellite radio. Spacious enough for 3 children in the back. Convenience of all power features.

- Jim A

Ford Taurus sedan good road trip car

It is a good car could be better on gas. It is roomy and plenty of power ports for all the phones. Smooth ride comfy for long trips. Sirius radio CD am FM radio. Huge trunk. Great car for road trips. Easy handling, great in the rain and the snow. Good looking car. Blue in color

- barbara W

Extremely spacious. Perfect for a family !

At first I thought that I was going to hate my Taurus. Then I fell in love with everything I thought I was going to hate such as, how long the car is. Now I love the space and it is so perfect for us and our 1 and 5 year old ! It comfortably fits a large convertible car seat !

- Alyssa D

Drives fast and smooth like a sports car but also feels safe.

I honestly love my car. It drives fast and smooth. Has a lot of car and trunk space. It accommodates to almost any basic sized family needs. The air conditioning and heating system adjust to the driver and passenger separately so there isn't just one overall set temperature.

- Morgan M

My Ford Taurus, the greatest car of my life!

No problems. It performs well in city driving as well as highway driving. I bought it used in 2016 and it is the most reliable car I have ever had new or used. It is a pretty silver color with a gray leather interior. I give people rides in it and am proud to show it off.

- Marisa O

Great and reliable vehicle with solid performance.

Comfortable and reliable. Has a nice, modern look. Minimal maintenance required. Maintain their performance throughout life if vehicle. Comfortable on the inside, spacious. We can fit 2 car seats and also seat a third person in back seat. Roomy front, came move set back.

- Mary M

Taurus keeps moving on and moving forward.

No serious problems. Brakes, rear wheel bearings. At 100k miles the car was tuned up and battery was switched out for a new one. Auto start has stopped working and dealership had no idea on how to fix other than put a new auto start in. Gas mileage on average is 30 mpg.

- Scott H

What's wrong with my vehicles.

My minivan has been sitting for 2 years and. Needs a new transmission put in it so it can run. And probably needs 4 new tires as it has been sitting for 2 years. But I am currently driving a 2012 ford Taurus se and it runs pretty good but does need some work done to it.

- Elizabeth H

Taurus SHO is excellent and spacious

I have the SHO version of the Tarsus and I love it. I have only had it for a few months. I bought it used. The only issue I have had is the key fob is not unlocking the doors. Performance is amazing, it is comfortable and has every imaginable feature you could ask for.

- Crystal R

My rims. The lights that display at night.

My vehicle drives good although it is a used car. It saves good on gas. The inside is very spacious and has lights inside of the vehicle at night. I have heard a lot about Ford cars not being very great cars but so far I have not had any problems with my used car.

- Jefferson M

How unreliable it is and how it is constantly in need of new parts.

I dislike how often something goes wrong with it. I dislike how it isn't as quiet as other cars. I don't like Ford supporting Trump. .makes me wanna never buy a Ford again. I thought the car would be more durable than it is. .always something going wrong with it.

- Brandon A

Rear back up assistance. I like the rear back of assistance.

What I like about the 2012 Ford Taurus are the leather seats, power seats and windows, rear back up assistance, and the amount of space inside of the car. I do not like the gas mileage. The performance is pretty good except there are some suspension problems.

- Shannon T

Not your father's Taurus. So much more than you'd imagine.

We bought our Taurus used with 35k miles. It now has 66k and with the exception of tires and oil changes has not required a thing. Rides like a dream, roomy in side, and lots of trunk room. Everyone who rides with us comments on what a nice car it is.

- Rachel S

It is ugly and too small. I can not have any extra people in my car so going places with someone else isn't an option.

It is too small for three car seats that I want to fit. There are dents in the side and scratches on the top from a tree hanging down. I want something with less miles and a lot more room. I don't want the biggest vehicle but something comfortable.

- Maggie R

Luxury at a reasonable price is the best feature of my vehicle.

My vehicle provides great gas mileage and has a comfortable ride when traveling. It has modern features such as syncing with my phone, driving directions and satellite services. I enjoy my Sunday rides and luxury features without the added price.

- Hattie S

It is extremely dependable.

Technology, speed and responsiveness, phone connectivity is what I like.. What I do not like is the display panel on the info center is hard to read on sunny days. When I get a low tire pressure warning, it does not tell me what tire is low..

- Kevin P

Good car overall I would recommend it to anyone looking for a car that is easily maintained

It is a good riding car not too big or small I really enjoy the fact that it does not cost much when time to fill good on the road car and it is big enough to accommodate family on road trips. Ford is American made so that is a plus as well.

- Michelle C

That the car is heavy duty and great for all seasons

It's a vehicle with plenty of space, it is reliable and a heavy duty vehicle which makes it good for all the seasons. I dislike how hard it is when something needs to be replaced on it they can be expensive parts and hard to get to...

- Jennifer B

It is very durable. I bought it as a used car and it has functioned well for me.

My vehicle functions well, but the brake and gas pedals are less responsive than I would like them to be. I like the exterior and the color of the car. I also think that it is a dependable vehicle that does not use up too much gas.

- Anna N


My car has been a good one. I have made sure to have regular maintenance on the car and there have been few mechanical problems. It is comfortable to drive but, of course, it doesn't have today's technical advances.

- Elisabeth W

It's great gas mileage. I average about 26 miles to the gallon.

My car gets great gas mileage and handles very well. The car rides so smoothly that I often don't realize how fast I am going. The sound system is wonderful. However, there isn't really enough storage for me.

- Jonathan H

Cool car. Overall I am pleased with my car purchase. I find it funny that people mistake my car for a police car.

The tartus I drive so far has had no major problems in regard to going to the shop. Minor issues would be more be more trunk space and more reliable GPS navigation. Comfort wise I like the dual ac system.

- Marlena S

I love my ride! It's the most comfortable ever!

I love my Ford Taurus. It is spacious, it is comfortable, it carries passengers well. It has a huge trunk space. I love the color of my car, charcoal gray. I love the interior, it stays so clean,

- Anita G

The size of the trunk space is huge.

My vehicle is large enough to transport 5 people comfortably. It also has a great sound system that I enjoy listening to. The trunk space is huge and even more so when I lower the back seats.

- Robert M

I have never felt safer In a standard size car which handles extremely well and very sturdy

My Ford Taurus is extremely spacious despite the compact look from the outside. While inside I feel safe, which is important to me considering my two daughters are generally in the car with me.

- Erika W

The car has a lot of space and features for a low cost.

The car is a good value for the size and features. Nice interior and runs smooth. The dash has a very dated feel and the front wheel drive system spins its wheels easily from a stop.

- James C

Large, spacious, and comfortable vehicle that gets decent gas mileage and can fit large families or belongings.

The car is very large and spacious. It is also incredibly comfortable for both short and long term driving. I can see through all windows and mirrors with ease. I have no complaints.

It is silver with a black interior.

I love the Ford Taurus. It's reliable and gets great gas mileage for being a midsize. I love the space it gives for my groceries in the trunk and my kids in the back seat.

- Cathy C

Spacious trunk and great Gas mileage

The vehicle is really smooth with driving, the gas mileage is awesome with the traffic I go through, and the car has a lot room in the back seat and trunk.

- Amanda B

It is really too big. It's not economical on gas and it's not comfortable.

It is a gas guzzler. It is just too big. The dashboard is too high and I feel like I'm driving a tank. It does have a huge trunk which I do like.

- Pam M

That as good as it looks (candy apple red in color), and driving comfortable and reliable, it still gets 24 miles to the gallon during highway driving.

I've put 170,000+ miles on this Ford Taurus, mostly highway miles. Very comfortable touring vehicle and very reliable. Comfortable in every way!

- george a

I handles good with the features I use.

It is easy to handle put would like a smaller car.. Good gas mileage has good features put not too many the one I like is the backup system.

- Norma S

It has convex mirrors that are great for seeing in your blind spot.

Lots of room in the back seat and trunk. Drives very smooth. Have put a lot of miles on it both short and long distance and is still great.

- Brooklyn V

Its reliable. Gets me from point A to point B.

The sync keeps disconnecting and I have to constantly unplug the battery to make the sync work which messes up the computer all the time.

- Autumn C

The bumper sits really low.

I like the space, however I hate the style. It's also terrible on gas. The material that was used to make/design the care is very cheap.

- Angelique D

That they are economical to maintain.

It gets great gas mileage it is spacey and comfortable when driving I love the interior the color and how the gauges look in the inside.

Reliable. Can drive it wherever and can trust it to start right up.

Reliable, nice size and convenient. Fell in love with Taurus vehicles. Large trunk, back up camera and warning. Love the interior.

It is not for everyone. It should be test driven for a whole day.

I hate the way you can see from the rear window. There is also a blind spot on the sides..... I like the smoothness of the drive..

- Andrea S

The car has a lot of room on the inside.

I like that I do not have to spend a lot of money on gas. The car rides very smoothly and there is a lot of space for my family.

Ford's are unreliable and my Taurus has been nothing but headaches for me

breaks down too often . .gas mileage is the oneplus, but with the durability issues i have to give it a low rating.

It runs okay but does the job. It is good on gas and the ac blows cold.

Ride is smooth. The cabin space is not big enough for a guy with my frame. The vehicle has had electrical issues.
