I have now logged 2,000 mile on my 21012 Taurus Limited. Great car. This is probably the best new car I've ever owned ...which includes an Audi A6, and a Chrysler 300. It's big yet handles very well, and its exceptionally comfortable. I' have had no problems with anything. I tend to drive long distances and I drive fast. This car handles very well at all speeds (I haven't gone over 90mph..yet), and well in snow too. The inteior layout fits me perfectly The SYNC system is easy to learn and has been very good. There's plenty of technology in this car, but it isn't burdensome and their engineers have produced a car thats very user friendly, and useful. The last GM truck I owned had a lot of USELESS technology that was either burdensome or it just didn't work very well. This car has been a breath of fresh air compared to GM's technology.

Best Car I've Ever Owned

Based on reviews, my wife and I were all set to purchase a Fusion. After we test drove the vehicle, we were drawn to a Taurus sitting nearby on the lot. We decided to take a test drive and found it far exceeded the comfort and room the Fusion offered. All for just several thousand more dollars. I now have 33,000 miles on it and just love it. It's so quiet you cant hear the engine running. So comfortable you don't notice your traveling on Michigan roadways. With the extras that came with the vehicle, you're basically driving a Lincoln MKZ at a much lower cost. If Ford doesn't upset the technology of this vehicle, they'll have a winner for many years to come.

Comfort and Value

Smooth and quiet the SEL I found online had only 18k miles on it, a clean CarFax, one owner and well maintained. I love the keyless push button start and entry system and the Sync system plays well on the Sony speakers from an 8 gig thumbdrive. The V6 has sufficent power to pass in freeway traffic and still gets an overall 21 MPG on regular gas city/highway. Mine has the red color with tan leather interior, heated power seats and seats five with ease. The huge trunk is perfect for a foursome to go golfing. If you want comfort, handling and a sable ride in a less expensive sedan put the later model Taurus's on you list.

Great Car

This is my first Ford ever. I've mostly owned Chevy's & Audi's with a couple of Toyota's in there and have no complaints (except for the first Toyota) but my 2012 SHO beats them all. Nice blend of styling, comfort, power, and fuel economy (for a performance car). Great options. I've only had the car for 3,500 miles so I can't tell about reliability yet, but fun to drive. You car guys will appreciate.

I really like most everything about this car, its so quiet, love the way it handles. Wind noise is virtually none, road noise is a little more noticeable, plenty of power., a joy to drive. Drivers seat and area is a little confined, but I still like the car and its styling. If you were a large person, it may too confining. Test drive before you buy! Unlike others in previous posts that traded it in after a month or what ever.....seriously, they did not look the car over before purchasing.

So far, most reliable car I've owned

Just purchased a lease on a 2012 Ford Taurus in March. After resolving some glitches at the dealership, the car is super! Smooth riding & smooth idling; I don't hear or feel anything when I'm stopped at a light. I drive 27 miles to work and the trip was never more enjoyable. This car replaced my 2002 Taurus which I had for ten years & was very happy with. I highly recommend the Ford Taurus to everyone. A good-sized reliable sedan!
