Drives and handles great. Many safety features

Like new. This all wheel drive rides better than the previous front wheel drive I previously owned. Worth the 90 mile drive to purchase it. Fuel economy was the same on a 1000 mile trip.

70K miles on my 2013, and not one mechanical issue

I purchased my 2013 Taurus new. It now has 70K miles on it and has not had a single mechanical issue. I service it regularly of course at the dealer, and I love the quality of service. My only dislike is the lack of interior space, legroom in particular. The design style still looks great both inside and out. Trunk space is a real bonus. Mileage and power are excellent for this size car.

Taurus is the most comfortable car I've ever owned

My 2016 is my second Taurus. I bought a 2013 with 10,000 miles on it and drove it for 80,0000 trouble free miles. I travel daily in my work and comfort is key. The Taurus fits me like a glove and also delivers tremendous fuel economy for a car it's size. My 2013 FWD delivered 30mpg on the highway, and my 2016 AWD is excellent as well, at 28mpg. I normally trade around 90,000 miles and this time around there was no question what I would buy. Look around and find a program car with low mileage and you can practically steal it when compared to the original sticker price! I especially like the collision avoidance features on my new one, and got a pleasant surprise when my insurance dropped $200 yearly when I upgraded!! Excellent all-around value in a touring vehicle!

Taurus --- Meh

This should be a very reliable car, as Taurus has been on the road since the mid 80s. The 2016 should have had a much stronger engine and transmission. This model shifts back and forth too much during normal travel and hasn't the torque needed to get down the road without downshifting multiple times to get to travelling speed. The car is very roomy and has a decent ride, however mine is the Limited edition and in my opinion should ride much quieter and smoother for its 41,000 price tag. The trunk space is extremely roomy and was able to stow away a small apartment. The SHO is the only model that offers fog lights, that I know of; the limited and below do not on the 2016. The headlights, low beam, has a definitive black line or blind spot just above the light line forward of the car. The high beams are substantial and are what to be expected for that level of light. The SYNC3 system is unique in that it gets its updates automatically and do not require any outside intervention by the owner. Navigation is easy to use and stays updated. Overall I like the car, the boost I was looking for can be found in the SHO model, but for 14,000 more dollars was just not provocative enough for me to buy that model. If you're looking for a family sedan then this is a very nice selection and looks great going down the road.

Very good automobile.

Own a Lincoln Town Car. This car is no longer available NEW, neither is the Crown Vic, &, I wanted something close. Not a fan of the new Continental, so I chose a Ford Taurus. Just got home from a vacation trip, & I am very pleased with the overall experience I have had with my new, 2016 Ford Taurus. Performance is excellent, as well as COMFORT, which is important to me as I spend a lot of time, driving. A great, good looking ride!
