Ford Taurus: An economical fit for your family.

2012 Ford Taurus SE

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.

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

2012 Ford Taurus SE

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 .

Extremely spacious. Perfect for a family !

2012 Ford Taurus SE

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 !

What's wrong with my vehicles.

2012 Ford Taurus SE

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.
