Like Every Other Ford Taurus: Reliable
October 22, 2018
Cramped interior, nice looking exterior, fun to drive. I prefer the old style split bench. The bucket seats give me far less room to move around and adjust while on long trips. I really like driving this car. I have the four cylinder and it has really nice pickup, much better than my previous three Fords, all Taurus's. It presents a nice, quiet smooth ride. Goes over big bumps very smoothly, but you feel the small bumps. The sound system is very good. I have the Sony sound system that came with the Limited. My Ford Touch voice commands are extremely difficult to get used to. While "Alexa" at home is very easy to use, My Ford Touch has a long learning curve. The software is no longer being supported and updated. And, you have to be very particular in what you say. If you don't wait for the "beep," you'll get reprimanded. So, be warned, it will take awhile for the car to train you. There are the nice little things. I have the motorized sliding moon roof, the motorized rear sun shade, the low tire pressure warning, and more. Nice features. All in all, my favorite Taurus to date, but I long for the split bench which I found very comfortable.
