Great car to drive, large and comfortable. Can't recommend it however, after 7 years of ownership and just under 130 k miles, I just crested the $8,000 mark in repair bills, not maintenance, repairs. Where to start....power steering pump, steering rack, axles and CV joints, wheel hubs 6 no less,

Body is stylish enough for an average priced 4 door sedan. Paint color choices are nice. Metallic black is the color of this. The quality of trim is beyond terrible. The plastic molding around the windows and doors ( front ) are notorious for coming off!? The interior is crazy?!

Pros:Handles great, gas mi.good, reliable

I bought a 2011 Taurus 6 months ago. I suspected interior dirt from the beginning and now that it is dry this spring it is certainly confirmed. The design of this vehicle is definitely not to be driven on country roads. When you open the back doors there is a

Braking system is a joke. Calipers , brackets, rotors and bearings of poor design and worse quality. Have had several issues and made my own modifications and it needs constant monitoring. Lucky I'm an engineer and a mechanic myself. Transmission has always shifted hard and is constantly shifting while coasting

This car has some fairly nice features and is quite large. The trunk is huge! But the visibility is poor which makes it stressful to drive. Has a nice ride and gas mileage is average. Sync works great.

The 6th generation Taurus is a great car for those looking for a cushy ride, simplicity of operation, and occasional nuisance from the Sync operating system. In general, the car has great steering feel for the size of car, although the large size of car still is present. Acceleration is

The car looks nice but is cheaply made. The Sync system does not work correctly - even after upgrade at dealer. The roof hangs loose at the rear window and the dealer says that is how Ford make it. The sound system is good but does not have easy access

I bought this car because I liked virtually everything about it. I liked the way it looks & rides. I liked the roominess in front and back and the comfort of the car. I have always been a Ford guy. I like the quality inside and out. But I have

Car spends more time in the shop than in my garage at home. It seems as if every 2 to 3 months something breaks. Started with a blown engine at 7000 miles. Heater quit 3 times, LED lights are nice when they work. Chrome flaked off the tail lights 3

At 30,000 miles the steering gear went out. The part had to be ordered and took 3 days to retrieve. We had an accident and hit a deer going 70 mph and the airbags puffed but did not deploy and now the airbag idiot light says the airbags are off.
