Taurus is a family vehicle.
Big is OK
Comfort is a family sedan is important.

If Ford would get its act completely together
they would knock the asians out of the market.

Relax ok...... we are friends

I would love to see our government relax buisness tax so all USA Cars would have parts made in the USA

I purchased one of the new SHO models since I have two previous models in my stable, the venerable Gen 1 (with ugly dash) and an automatic Gen 2 with the 3.2L Yamaha.

The car has been to the dealer for turbo lag and linearity issues, service department says calibration is off and new programming will be coming from Ford soon which should fix the power delivery. I can't wait!

Vance1 im with you. But I did vote for Obama.But thease people will not be happy until we make nothing in America.Its kind of sad they think that everything can be made or owned by other countries and they will still have a high standard of living in America. It's all tied together someone in the GM plant gets a pink slip 5 others that provide services will have no job.They teach us in school that we can be a consumer society and still have a good life. and look were that has gotten us.I almost diden't make it through that class.The teacher was taught that and never questioned it. I say we have to make some things here to have a good life.

We will purchase 30 additional, all 5.0 V-8 before the nd f the 2013 model year....our insurance rates will increase significsnty on ny 2014 and beyond due to high cost of replacement luminum body panels.
Having tested our Fords , they remin highly superior to any Chevrolet or Dodge in overall comfort, driveabiity, and quality.

The entire Ford Fusion is made in Mexico, the very first Fusion, beautiful black car, with of course the EcoBoost, had to be towed about 5 miles on the way from from the Ford Plant in Hermosillo, to Kino Motors, to correct, engine stalling issues. I was actually there at the dealership when the car arived on the tow truck. Hhmmmmm
Turned out to be a faulty wiring harness, also made in Mexico by Ford, which controls the transmits the mass air sensor signal to the computer which in turn controls all of the engine fuel mänageent systems.
By the way, the people whom work at the wiring haress assembly plant make on average 860US$$$.. per month, for a 52 hour work week. hhhmmmmmm

How would you know about the ecoboost engines Mr. Tailgate bend? You don't even own one. And city mileage is EPA rated at 20-22 mpg city. Wrong as usual. Getting 365hp out of a V-6 is pretty impressive. Has Toyota accomplished it? Their highest rated HP engine only has 381 and it's a V-8? Hahahahahhahaha.
Your a turd, a Ford turd. As usual you are clueless. Clueless as the rest of the dumastic turds. That v6 wont last long, the mechanical was under designed for the stresses its under.Just like the 1/2 ton domestics, they are under powered and overpriced. They knew that a domestic 1/2 ton would have trouble pulling 6,000+. So alot of 1/2 ton owners HAD TO buy a 3/4 or 1 ton turd to pull any weight. Its sad when a ford V^ has more power than a ford V8.........thats pathedic!!!!!!!

We noticed you didnt comapre them to the " Truck that changed it all.......The Toyota Tundra"! Smart move!!!!!!First 1/2 ton truck on earth with(all standard):SRS airbags(surround), 6 speed tranny(plus 6 more gears for towing with 4 for engine braking),381hp, 401FPT, VVT, racing exhaust, 10.5" ring gear, 4:30 rearend, 13.9" rotors with dual calpiers, 18" wheels.....You have been schooled!!!!Plus, its designed and engineered by the greatest auto maker in the world...not in the US(Detroit). Toyota designed the truck around the powertrain NOT like ford does...build an over size truck around an underpowered drive train...LOL!!!!!!Wait till Ford has to prove what on paper.........LOL!!!!!

Dont act like a v6 turbo is all that.....its not! The machanical aspects are not designed to pull like a v8..turbo or not, get real!!!! The domestic engineers made a 1/2 ton that was way underpowered and designed so that the domestic lovers would have to stpe up to an underpowered and overpriced 3/4 or 1 ton.....taken to the cleaners!!!!

Take a look at a Toyota Camry and what do you see? A much better engineered and more comfortable Ford Taurus. Ford poo pooed on the Taurus many years ago, the 3.8 engine in both the Taurus and the T-Bird were world champion head gasket blowers. The Automatic Transmission with the Electronic Overdrive was junk from the factory. The ONLY thing they had going for them was the 3.0 engine and that thing was bullet proof. By 1994 the styling of the Taurus was not too bad especially on the wagon but by then the reputation for head gaskets and transmission failures made man people go to the superior Camry.
