2011 4dr Sedan 288-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
IMHO This is the Best Car Ever..... It is a Ford Made by the Ford Motor Company of the USA. Ford has never taken money from the Government like the other two USA car makers. I am a 40 year plus GM buyer but not in 2011. I own a Ford now and it will either be the last car I ever own or I may just buy another Ford when I wear this one out. Right now I have 20,000 miles on it and the only maintenance has been oil/filter change and new wiper blades. I saved the original blades for spares since they were in fine condition and just wanted to be extra prepared for our trip. Again.....Best Car Ever..... No I do not work for Ford. This is just an awesome automobile.

I just wanted to give an update on this car now that I have driven it in snow. And lots of it here lately. One of my criteria when looking for a car was that it have All Wheel Drive, and the SHO fits the bill. It came with Goodyear Eagle something or others on it, and I was not expecting much from the tires come winter. Thus the reason for this update. I am extremely pleased with this car and the way it handles winter. The AWD system is top notch and I have had zero issues. Even the Goodyear tires have performed well, much better than I expected. (If you want to know which tires I have, drop a line.. I forgot to look before posting this review) The car is very solid, and it is very stable on the road. It does not get skittish when driving on snow covered roads, icy or windy conditions. It is a full size car, comfortable, quiet and a pleasure to drive and look at. All in all I am happy with my Taurus and at this point would certainly buy another.

No problems with this one or previous owned taurus in over 100 K miles.

top notch - equal to honda/toyota
2007 0 I am a retired auto mechanic and have tried to keep this 2007 Taurus running over the last 4 years for my daughter. This is the last year of the old Taurus, thank the Lord. Now 90,000 miles. NOTE: The current (2008 and up) Taurus is a much better and more reliable auto. I own a 2005 Ford Five Hundred, a transitional model very similar to the new Taurus, which has been a very good auto over the 5 years I have owned it. The 2007 Taurus: 90,000 miles currently. Repairs beyond normal, brakes, etc. At 60,000 miles, squealing which was misdiagnosed by a repair shop as a belt tensioner which they replaced. Not fixed. I looked at it and fixed itby replacing the camshaft synchronizer-very common problem. Would have cost about $350 at a shop. 68,000 miles. Misfire and barely ran. Caused by faulty coil pack and high resistence spark plug wires. Would have cost about $400 at a shop. 75,000 miles. Exhaust pipe with catalystsuddenly broke off at front of car and jammed into roadway because safety strap to keep broken exhaust off roadway had been eliminated in design. Local shop wanted $1300 to replace exhaust. Fixed with flex joint replacement for $100. Common problem according to Google search. 90,000 miles. Automatic transmission failed suddenly. No movement. 3500 tofix around here. I currently am overhauling this automatic (4th generation transmissionstill unreliable). Problem wasrubbervent becoming brittle andblocked and holding moist air inside until several ounces of water rusted critical components. Least reliable automatic in the industryall through Taurus history since 1991.Also found heater pipes mounted on engine side of firewall badly rusted from outside and starting to leak. Replaced--another common problem. So, if someone offers you one of these gems FREE, or just about ANY Taurus prior to 2008, check it out very thoroughly before you accept it.

The Duratec V-6 is bulletproof, one best engines Ford has ever made.
2003 4dr Sedan The car does not need much maintenance to keep running well for a long period of time. It can take high mileage.
2002 4dr Wagon turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4

Drivetrain is rock solid; this car is dependable and starts up and goes day in and day out. Very reliable transportation. Note: Ford maintenance schedule followed precisely.

2011 4dr Sedan turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I still have the occasional clunking sound in the front end. While the dealer tells me he is willing to fix it his actions say otherwise. The noise at this point doesn't seem to affect anything, it's just something I need to get looked at. I think I will have to take it to a private garage if I want action on it.
2001 4dr Sedan The Taurus completely fell apart on me, starting at a whopping 90K miles. The insides hold together well, but everything important, the powertrain, suspension, etc., failed at very ripe ages.
2000 4dr Sedan turbocharged 200hp 2.0L I4

Again, reliability and durability generally OK; developed engine cradle failure in 2012 in Maine. No other major issues with durability/reliability, except for a few minor electrical problems (failures) related to cruise control and trip computer.

In 4 years of ownership, we\'ve never had an issue with reliability. I am a cautious person, but at no time did I ever suspect that this vehicle would leave me in the lurch. I give it a full 5 stars for reliability.

Air conditioner compressor blew up at 76,000 miles, a $1200 repair after discounts(they wanted $2500). I rebuilt the front brake caliper at 86000 miles.
