The front seats are horrible- similar to airline seats, and no amount of adjusting or adding cushions helped. I'm 6'2 and my wife is 5'3.and neither of us could get comfortable. After 2 weeks, it was actually painful to drive this car. see full Ford Taurus review

What can I say? I have not even begun the test the power of this engine! And when I do I'm going to want a big straight piece of road to do it on! The engine is smooth, quiet and very responsive. You wouldn't know it is twin turbo, there is no lag. see full Ford Taurus review

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The six speed transmission is smooth and reliable. It is the best car I have ever driven in the mountains. The manual downshifting in hill country is the best I have ever seen. Smooth and I can hold most hills without using the brakes at all. Power is a plenty. More than I need but when you want it it is there. Smooth power and fast acceleration for interstate travels the Taurus is awesome. see full Ford Taurus review
