If you don't have enough room in your trunk, just lay the backseat down!

My vehicle is a 2013 red Ford Taurus sel 4 door. I love it! Like all other vehicles you have to keep up with oil changes, good tires, and all that other stuff you have to keep up. But with the Ford Taurus its a lot less hassle to it, everything's digital so it tells you how much oil you have and everything else. My favorite thing is that it even tells you when your tire pressure is low. What other vehicles do that? The next best thing is the screen on the dash, it has the radio, your navigation system, the temperature settings, and its Bluetooth so it has your phone information on it to. It also has a CD player so if I didn't want to listen to the music on my phone or the radio and could just put a CD in. The steering wheel has volume control, you can also change the radios stations on it to. There's also cruise control on the steering wheel. Both of the front seats have heated seats, which comes in handy during the winter when its gets really cold. In the backseat, you have the option for three seats or two. By that I am meaning that there's a little arm rest in the middle that you can pull down and it also has a cup holder. Or if you have to carry something that's to long for your trunk you could also lay the back seat down to have more room for that item. I have not had any problems with my Ford Taurus.

Easy to maintain and lots of joy.

This car has been driven pretty much anywhere in the united states that you can drive to from Seattle to Mississippi and everywhere in between. The only recent issue we have had is the transmission going out but that is to be expected eventually with a vehicle of its age and the amount of driving we do with it. The maintenance on the vehicle is easy and mostly handled by the mechanic in the family and has never cost a lot except for the transmission going out. I would definitely suggest this car to someone wanting a easy vehicle to maintain as well as one that will last through numerous road trips.

This car delivers the ultimate experience in performance and comfort.

I have not really had any problems with my vehicle except for the navigation system. It does not always understand what is being said and requires repetition of the address/location and intersection to try to get it to understand what you are entering. Most of the time it is simply the easiest to actually look up the address and enter that information. than you only have to deal with the recognition of the address you are trying to enter. If you make to many repetitions - the system will stop and than request you to start over again. Other than that inconvenience the car has performed beautifully.
