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.

Love My Taurus, BUT.....

Purchased my 2012 SEL new. I loved the exterior styling; sporty and stylish. The interior was very comfortable and classy. Will most likely never use the paddle shifters that came standard on the steering wheel. My one HUGE complaint: I was not informed upon purchase about the remote start. I was given a separate fob. The remote start works; however, when I get into my car and either touch the brake or insert the key it kills the engine. This feature, which does what it is programmed to do, drives me absolutely bonkers!!!!!! Had I known about it I would not have purchased the car. The annoying feature has been changed for the 2013 model, probably because Ford received so many complaints. I only have 4700 miles on it, but it would be foolish for me to trade it in now since I only owe 20,000.00 on it. As a result I am pretty unhappy with it but will keep it until it makes more sense to trade it in. I would recommend this car, but NOT this year model unless you don't care about the remote start feature. Also...for the price I think the car should have come with universal garage buttons. Just my opinion.

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.

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.

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!

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.

The guys over at Xtreme Motors in Indianapolis are really great people! Not only did they help me get into a car with great deals, they gave me a safe, reliable, and great looking car that I knew I could count on. The honesty of their company is such that I will not forget, and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a car that not only drives well but is in great shape also. If you are looking for comfort, power, and top of the line everything, you can find it in a Ford Taurus, and you can go to Xtreme Motors in Indy to get it.

I love this car. Just got mine 2 days ago. I got the SEL Model with the Leather Interior, Heated Seats and Moon Roof. The car drives great. Gas Milage is good considering this car is over 4000lbs. The Cabin is very quiet and has lots of space. I also like how the cup holders are hidden until you decide to use them. Makes very clean looking appearance. I have loved the out side of the car since they redesigned it in 2010. The only design extra I don't think I will use much is the Paddle shifters that come standard on the SEL and up. Over all this is a greate Family Car that starts to blend into the area of a luxury car.

Great road car but too big on the outside

After 5,000 miles in mixed driving I can say the car is performing flawlessly, getting 25MPG overall and Sync is mostly a joy to use. It's a pleasure to drive BUT it has giant overhangs and is just way too long so parking is a chore made more difficult by huge blind spots. I don't love the seats too short bottom cushion or the way a seam pokes me between the shoulders and I hate the center console, which is too wide and with a hard corner that is a lousy place to have to rest my knee. I chose the AWD model and am pleased. It's a great all weather car.
