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!


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.


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.


Great car.

I love my new 2012 Ford Taurus. It's alot of car for the money. It's too new to tell how reliable it is. It should be for the money it cost.


Excellent Car

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.


sleeper car

Bought 2012 Taurus SHO and it is a great car. Sync works nicely and fairly easy to use. The ride is comfortable even with 20 inch tires. Trunk space is hugh. This car is quick , have to mindful of speed. Its definetly a sleeper.


Love My New Taurus

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.


Need moe refinement

The car drive well except for the steering feedback is too hard. Tend to jerk back. The front view is somewhat limited for this size car. The dashboard need to be lower. Control way to busy. Need to install a gas door lock. Also, the new feature does not come with a gas cap. When I fill the full tank with auto shut off. The gas actually spill out from inside the car panel. Somewhere between the tank and the receiving hole. Very dangerous. I suspect other may have this issue.
