Incredibly adequate

2018 Ford Taurus se

I bought the SE because The SEL is just too expensive and I felt it was a good value for the money. Not too many left on dealer lots since Ford slashed prices and discontinued them. I like the high window sills, they seem to be a good safety design. The standard 18" wheels look sporty and are wrapped in Michelin Pilots tires.The front end styling is a little dated but overall it's a nice looking car. Fold down rear seats and a huge trunk make for plenty of storage space. Inside the SE model you get weird looking/ feeling cloth seats but appear like they will hold up well. Also with the low end SE you get the tiny function screen and a lousy stereo/speaker system. Power from the 3.5 base engine is quiet and good at moving the car quickly when needed. Bluetooth hands free system has already gone bad and waiting for parts from my dealer for 3 weeks now. The bottom line is I bought a near-premium car at a deeply discounted price. I'm adequately satisfied.

Mid-size sedan, looks and feels like a bigger car

2018 Ford Taurus SE

I am a short person and this car. Fits me very well.I can raise up both front seats electrically The key insert is not on the steering wheel or the center console. Steering wheel raises up or down. The bucket seats are very comfortable. And electric. It has a seat air vents on the backside of the center console. Four doors are in this sedan. Has a large deep trunk. Outside mirrors are only manual for closing them. Electric door control for mirror adjustment inside. Seats are a dark nylon. The trim inside is a tan color. Outside paint color is white. There are no fog lights. This is a very roomy car for a smaller four door car.

My Ford Taurus is a very reliable vehicle!

2018 Ford Taurus SE

I have only had my car for about 8 months, but I really love it. It's really reliable, it's decent on gas for city driving. I feel really safe and secure when I drive around town. It's very roomy inside, perfect for dogs or kids to ride in the back seat. I took it to Durango a few months ago and it did really well on gas and it was comfortable to ride in the whole trip. This is one of Ford's greater vehicles in my opinion.
