"Ultimate Driving Machine" by Car Guy: from Massachusetts on 08/05/2012. Trim: 2008 Ford Taurus SEL, Owned 2 years.

Pros: Super smooth ride, lots of get up and go for a car this big, decent gas milage around town averaging 23- 24 mpg's,on highway trips I average 29-30 and have even seen 31mpg's doing about 75mph. Good interior quality, good stereo, comfortable seats, plenty of space even with a car full of adults. Huge trunk.
Cons: transmission started sticking alittle around 70,000 miles but a friend told me it's a ford thing and need to change the transmission fluid.
Overall review: Love the car, it's smooth and quick, and unless u floor it u can't really feel how fast the car actually gets going thanks to the 6 speed transmission, but i like it because it make the ride that much smoother, and the 6 speed tranny also helps with the mpg's.
