2007 0 Favorite feature: Cheap to buy used--last model year of the "old" Taurus. When everything is working ok for a month or two, it is a very usable auto. Reasonable power and fuel economy. A/C works well. Don't pay much for it because you will need a savings account to keep it running. full 2007 Ford Taurus review
