It is July 2013 and I bought my car last month. It is the first Ford I have owned since 1982, when I traded in a '69 Galaxy for a '79 Horizon. Wish I still had the Galaxy! I grew up in a Ford family, had my diver's license since 1974 and driven a bunch of different cars but had primarily been a GM for the last 20 years. They're still doing nice stuff and I've driven some of it but this Ford stole my heart and I'm glad to be back in the fold. Both Ford and GM have had their political and social miscues the last few years but I think Ford's product speaks for itself and I'm glad I own one. see full Ford Taurus review
