1998 Ford Taurus
|Exterior styling & interior styling & comfort||Head rest on passenger seat is difficult to see around|
|Ford synch - it is an excellent system||Projector head lights, bordering on dangerous at night. blind spots on sides|
|Sound system: sony with 12 speakers||Adjusting to a 6 speed transmission from a cvt.|
|Electronics : computer permits a lot of options||Would like more open room in center front console|
|Handles excellent - cornering, brakes, crusing||Leather seat quality; not equivalent to volvos or jaguars|
|Exterior body fit & finish - good appearance||Minor road bump noise carried to interior due to low profile tires|
|Roomy comfort of interior; cargo area||Entry to vehicle is tough for tall passengers|
|Handling - car handles very well||Doesn't ride as nice as grand marquis|
|Interior - love the combination of technology & functionality||Rims/wheels: improve them to enhance the look even more|
|Gas tank entry without cover / cap||I don't care for the cup holder in the door|
