Well-rounded, comfortable and reliable car with exceptional performance

2013 Ford Taurus SE

I love this car especially for its driving and handling performance. This is a very large car that feels very heavy and even handles particularly well in winter weather. The steering performance of this car is exceptional and drives very smoothly and easily. I have not had any issues with the vehicle in my 7 months of owning it. I do also enjoy the comfort of the vehicle as it is very spacious and sits very comfortable. My only complaint about this vehicle is in the lack of compartments and space for storage within the dash and middle console. For a large center console there is very little room for placing items and placing items that are out of the way of the shifter I find. At times, there are noticeable blind spots when looking out of the vehicle. Otherwise, this vehicle rides and drives excellent.

The Ford Taurus'Best in Class

2013 Ford Taurus SE

My car rides like a dream, so smooth and comfortable. The trunk is very large and roomy. The car looks very sharp and stands high above similar size cars. I feel very safe driving it. The dash shows many features that can be modified to bring up other features as desired. The air conditioning system is fantastic because the driver and passenger areas can be controlled on different temps. Great gas mileage too. Very nice car.

Very reliable and comfortable vehicle.

2013 Ford Taurus SE

Our Taurus is still going strong at 170,000 miles. We have had to make minor repairs (rust, ball joints, wheel Barron). It rides very smooth and gets about 27 mpg on average. The AC is currently broken. Other than that it has been a reliable and comfortable vehicle used for transportation to and from work/school and the occasional long distance drive for shopping or such.

Taurus is a nice comfortable car.

2013 Ford Taurus SE

The car is comfortable. Back seat is spacious for two people but a bit crowded for three. Nice big trunk. The back up camera has gotten a bit foggy which makes it quite difficult to see out of. We bought it used and haven't had any troubles with it. I feel the headlights are either dim or just tough to see out of at night.

Great smooth ride and handles well

2013 Ford Taurus SE

Very smooth ride. Enough bells and whistles for me. Fits all three grandkids car seats. Sunroof gets clogged. Have to have it blown out every time I take it in for service after a major flood inside. Even Bluetooth was affected. I'd like recommend the leather seats if you have kids. Wish the window tint was darker.

5 years strong no issues with my car!

2013 Ford Taurus SE

I love the way my car handles on the road. I have had my car for 5 years now and not once has it given me a problem. The comfort, the room, and the looks of the car that make me love it even more. The cost of an oil change and tire rotation are not expensive at all. I would buy another for sure!

Heated and cooled seats..

2013 Ford Taurus SE

For some reason the ac wants to turn off on its own. Very spacious and comfortable. Has dual ac for both driver and passenger. Has heated and cooled seats. Has touch screen radio that has Bluetooth. Lets you know when oil needs changed or when your out of windshield washer fluid.

Wonderful car that keeps me safe

2013 Ford Taurus SE

I absolutely love my car. I have been in two accidents in this car and it has kept me safe and protected each time. My only complaint would be the black leather seats in the summer is extremely hot but that would be the case with any car. I highly recommend.
