Is high-tech necessary on the road?

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

Although the ford Taurus is somewhat of a gas guzzler, and rather pricey to fill up, now pushing $50 a tank, I love this car! Every time I get in my car I am happy to be there. It is a major comfort machine! My entire body is comfortable, nothing hurts, no cramping, no pain. I use the Bluetooth for my phone, but other than that the computerized features are a bit much. I like the compass. I do not like the way my iPod works when connected in the Taurus. It is difficult & cumbersome to operate while driving. The car is a pleasure to drive.

My Taurus SEL Review - Love

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

My Taurus was personalized by the first owner so it is essentially a Limited, but without the nicer rims and backup camera. The Taurus is VERY spacious and has a tone of room in the trunk. We took it on a road trip and got over 30 miles to the gallon in stop and go traffic. I do wish it had a little better sound system and came with more tinted windows though. The SHO model has both of those features.

- Kelsey S

Smooth ride that is pretty, sleek, and reliable.

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

No problems, lot of room, large, drives smooth, enough space in the back seat, exterior paint is sparkling, only needed oil changes so far. Reliable. Cannot think of anything I do not like. Cloth seats are stylish and warm in the winter. Wish I had heated seats. Easy to clean. Automatic seats. Power steering is great. Cruise control is easy to use. Better than other cars I have driven.

- Nikki T

Extremely reliable, spacious, and comfortable!

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

My 2013 Taurus has been my all-time favorite vehicle I have ever owned. The seats are incredibly comfortable, it's reliable, there's a lot of legroom, a ton of features, a huge trunk space for my stuff and my son's sporting equipment, and I feel extremely safe driving it. I have only had to have routine maintenance done on this vehicle and will drive it until it won't run anymore!

Used 2013 Vehicle Problems

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

Some electrical wiring problems. The rear view camera comes up on the screen upside down. The electrical screen will sometimes randomly shut off while driving. The cruise control does not always work. Sync does not always work with my Bluetooth or for phone calls. Great trunk space. Good leg space in the back seat. Very comfortable.

- Casey A

Very smooth riding and sleek.

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

Great car for the money. One of the main problems is finding a battery that suitable for the car. Once you find that, your car will run very smoothly. With a battery that doesn't work, you have a lot of mechanical problems. The car itself has a lot of power and can definitely move! A great buy for a family as well!

- Micah S

Love the cup holders in my car

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

Love how large it is. The trunk is huge. Great for families. I would recommend this car to anyone. Runs great! I have had it since it's new and would not trade it in tell it gives out on me. It's really comfortable. We have taken it on long trips it's done well. Its smooth on the road. And it's a quiet ride

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

My car is awesome! It is a beautiful blue color with tan interior. It is fast and sounds good. It handles corners well and has great gas mileage and handles travel mileage very well. It gets the oil changed regularly and is well taken care of. The trunk is quite large and holds a large amount of cargo.

Ford Taurus 2013 review by me

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

I haven't had any major problems to speak of. The cabin is spacious enough for my entire family to ride comfortably. Plenty of HP when needed and the ride is smooth and quiet. Only wish the my sync was more useful and didn't cost a fee. Just keep up with regular oil change

- Michael D

Very comfy car with lots of room for passengers and trunk space.

2013 Ford Taurus SEL

Vehicle is very reliable, only had trouble starting it a few times in very cold weather of -30 degrees Fahrenheit. Vehicle has enough get up and go, while maintaining ~26 mpg in summer and ~22 mpg in winter. Car rides very smooth and quiet. Large inside and trunk space.
