I have the 2008 Taurus and it's a smooth ride. I like the way it sits higher than the average midsize cars. The ride id very smooth and quiet. And it's not bad on fuel either, Also, the appearance is real nice.

- Well designed car "Nice Comfortable Ride" Not bad on Gas for the size.
- Not as sporty as I would like, but 2010's have improved
Purchased As Used
I have had this car for 2 months now. Dealer are willing to deal on this car. Great value right now in this economy. If you are looking for a SAFE large car with good gas mileage this is the one. Lots of nice features that are standard on the SEL. Well worth the upgrade.
Getting 20 MPG City not sure about Highway yet. This car is a 6 speed to help with gas mileage. All cars will be made this was in the future. Nice job FORD you will servive this down economy. Keep up the good work on building more fuel efficient cars both Big and Small. FORD, good move on calling the Ford 500 the Taurus old Taurus owners will love this new design even better. Try one......read morehide

- great power, fuel economy for a large car, and tons of room
- styling a little bland
Purchased As New
Bought this car new in May 2008. It was greatly discounted and has everything I could have wanted in a car. The power is impressive for a large vehicle and there's tons of room for the kids. For the value, this is truely a fabulous car and has great fuel economy. Currently I get 21.7 mpg mixed driving. The fit and finish is great, smooth transmission, and smooth engine. Ford has truely improved on its quality. I have owned Fords from the 80's and there is no comparision in quality. I think with the new Taurus, it will be a great hit just as long as Ford markets it correctly. Kudos to Ford!...read morehide

- Engine power, highway mileage, interior room, trunk space, features
- Bland styling, no bodyside molding protection, engine noise, heated seats optional with leather
Just picked up my 09 black Taurus with leather interior and Sync. This car has the room I need, unlike many of todays downsized sedans with a real big trunk. The interior is roomy and fairly comfortable and the new V6 gives strong passing power and gets good highway mileage. The Sync is a must have if you like hands free phone use and listen to music. Ride and handling are good but sometimes this car does feel a bit top heavy at higher speeds. In several weeks of ownership a few annoyances have surfaced. The V6 when pushed is a bit loud and sometimes the transmission seems hesitant. I like the leather seats but why doesn't Ford include heaters like Chevy does on the Impala with leather? The exterior styling is not my favorite as it looks tall and ungainly. A bodyside molding option would help in this regard and shame on Ford for not offering one as an option. You have to go to aftermarket for this! Bland styling aside, this car does what I need it to do and will hopefully give many trouble free miles....read morehide

- Great fuel economy in a good sized vehicle about 30mpg highway. Quiet and smooth ride. Huge trunk.
I don't know why Ford does not promote there cars this is truely a much better car than many on the road today I have had it for 3 months and it has been great. Fit finish performance all top rate. My last car was a Toyota avalon I can honestly say the Taurus is a better Car. The Avalon was in the shop three times in the first month I owned it....read morehide
