2008 Ford Taurus
There are 10 user reviews for the SEL AWD trim shown below
- Roomy, solid drive, huge trunk
I drove the Ford 500 last year and went out and got the Taurus as soon as it was out. Before that I drove a minivan and I was apprehensive about losing all that room.
I don't miss the minivan at all. The Taurus is comfortable, quiet and feels super safe even when I'm driving faster than my comfort zone.
All the standard features are more than I expected. And the trunk space is great.
Ford, don't change a thing about this vehicle.
Anyone in the market for a family car, needs to drive a Ford Taurus....read morehide

- Roomy, comfortable, great hauling capacity
- Drivetrain a little noisy
I've had this car for a short time, yet it is quickly growing on me. I've owned a 1999 Taurus, a 2002 Sable wagon (basically a Taurus), a 2005 Freestyle, and now this. I'm proud to be back in a Taurus again. After researching and driving several competitors' offerings, the Taurus stood out in all areas. Nobody can match this package for the price. My only complaint so far is that the engine & trans can be a little noisy, but nothing like the Freestyle. I compared this to a still-new '07 Five Hundred, and the refinements on the '08 make it a much different and better car. Ford has really stepped up....read morehide

I have owned a Taurus ever since 1999 and the 2008 surpasses all of them and I like the AWD feature.

- love it all I get 33.4 on the interstate
I absolutely love my 08 Ford Taurus it iss by far the best car I have ever owned. Perhaps the people who are complaining about fuel economy dont know how to work the buttons on the steering wheel. you need to press the miles per gallon buton 2 times and it will clock your miles instantly. Buy one save Detroit save America!!!...read morehide

- Beautiful ride. Smooth, handles the road with precision, brakes the best of any car I've ever had.
- The rear view mirror sits too high, view partially blocked by moonroof controls.
I love it. When I got the 2008 Taurus, at first I thought it wouldn't hug the road like my 1999 Taurus. I was pleasantly surprised. The ride is smooth, and it handles curves almost magically.

- everything is very good
- only small problem with brakes
I HAVE A LONG LINE OF FORDS IN MY PAST,THUNDERBIRDS, ONE MUSTANG AND MANY FORD TRUCKS FOR MY HUSBAND. WHEN GAS GOT SO BAD I DECIDED TO TRADE MY 99 TAURUS SHO AND LOOKED AT THE 2005 500 IT WAS NOT AN EASY DECISION BUT I LOVE THIS CAR AND WILL PROBABLY TRADE IT FOR AN 08 TAURUS, JUST BECAUSE IT IS A NEW VERSION OF SAME. IT HAS GREAT PEP, GOOD GAS, AND RIDES 5 PEOPLE EASILY WITH ROOM TO SPARE. FORD HAS FOUND A CAR TO BRING US BACK WITH ONE PROBLEM, WHAT ABOUT THE DELUXE VERSION BEING A TAURUS 500....read morehide

- The fit and trim are better than the Honda and toyota, I drive a 2002 Taurus SEL and I love it.
The car looks and feels great! Hondas and toyotas can't compare and you get more for your money with ford.
