Best used car I have ever owned

Have owned several Taurus in past . This time I held out for Limited model . By far and away this is much better road vehicle . Handling is great , mileage is up almost 5 mpg with 6 speed transmission . If need excellent stable car for your long trips, this is the vehicle .


Great car, even better price!

I love it. I was looking for a vehicle under $7,000, and I got the most for my money with this vehicle. All the reviews are true: spacious, comfortable, great handling, great milage, and simple yet effective interior design.


Best car any female could have.

This car gave me know problems , got me everywhere I needed to be, fast ,smooth and very reliable. Runs good on gas , lots of personal space for you and your friends and family , the trunk comes in handy with all the space in side it for family's who love to travel. It was a good experience to be able to have own it... To be behind the wheel of a 2008 Ford Taurus limited AWD sadan.



Our Company bought it NEW in 2008. The outside salesman is 6'3 and always on the go. This car has tons of room so it suited him well. Now in 2017, 250k miles later, he won't trade it for anything! Never had any problems! Great gas mileage! Super reliable! Overall GREAT VALUE! Totally impressed! :)


Love my car

My car is very comfortable, plenty of space. Love the sunroof. Smooth ride. Drove it to new York, Washington dc, Alabama and it was a comfortable enjoyable drive. I really like that the a.c. or the heat also has a vent in the back row for my son.


Going Strong

My 2008 Ford Taurus now has 173,000 miles on it and it's still going strong. It's even survived two teenagers. Typical maintenance, one major repair, a new set of tires, a new battery and it's still holding up. I hope this car goes strong for another 100,000. We use this car for all our driving needs.


Best ride I ever been in

Love it wouldn't change anything to it or wouldn't replace it. I recommend for all my friends and family to buy one


So far so good

Ive never really been a ford fan. That being said I do like our new car even though it is 9 years old. Got lots of safety features and it isnt a bad looking car. Smooth ride as well


If my Taurus were a girl it would be my girlfriend

I did a lot of research on this car, and due to all the good reviews I bought one used. It's a 2008 Limited. It now has 127000 miles on it, and it runs like a dream! I love this thing! I thought after several months the excitement would wear off, but even now I still love getting behind the wheel! The interior is so incredibly roomy I can't even believe it, and the trunk.... oh boy. It's ginormous! The rear and passenger seats all fold down, so you can fit almost anything into the car. The sound system is pretty bumpin totally stock, and I love the heated seats in the winter. And boy do I love to push down on the gas. This thing is a big car, and it feels big for a sedan when you're driving it, but it takes off like a rocket, and sounds pretty dang sexy while doing it! It has heated mirrors, and the rear view mirror automatically dims at night so other car's headlights aren't flashing you in the face all the time. The only minor problem I've experienced is a slight transmission clunk at cruising speeds every now and then, but if you take your car to the dealership they can update the transmission software and improve the driving experience greatly. Other than that, it shifts so smooth I can hardly feel it, and has an extremely quiet ride overall. I definitely would recommend this car to anyone, especially if you've got people to drive around! There's so much room in the back you might as well use it!


Most comfortable car I've ever owned

This car is the roomiest most comfortable car I've ever owned All the features are set up well. I own an SEL. So it doesn't have all the glitz but is very functionable. There's a few things that I wish it had- Like a better shifting Transmission. It's not bad for a drive around But if you drive it a little harder it doesn't seem too shift very well It's kind of Sloppy shifting. Wish it could be put into a sport mode to shift more crisply. If I need to pass some one on a 2 lane road has plenty of power to do so even when it's fully loaded on a trip. Does well in the snow.Had it parked for 3 winters. Out this year for worst winter in along time and it just fine in the slop
