This is my first car which I got from my older sister, which she got from our grandpa whom was a mechanic and a ford enthusiast. He personally picked this car from his used car lot for his granddaughters to have because it is safe and reliable. As a teenager I am extremely pleased with this car.
Even through the harsh winters of northern Canada where it can touch -45 degrees Celsius, the Taurus has never failed to get me to school and work every morning. I feel very safe driving in the winter, even when the roads are buried in almost a foot of snow and only big trucks and the toughest of cars can still get around. I've had a couple mild accidents including being rammed by an F-250 truck, but this thing is built like a tank!
The interior is roomy and I adore the front bucket seat setup which allows it to carry seven friends. The trunk has more than enough room for my 17" sub-woofers, camping gear, and a couple flats of beer. A great car for bush parties :D.
Along with its good looks, it's relatively quick too with regular maintenance and decent fuel quality (I've won many red-light drag races against other cars in its class and a couple coupes too!).
Even though it's approaching 350,000km it still runs like a real trooper and I expect my little brother, when I pass it down to him, will have as much fun with it as I did for many years to come. As for myself, I may move on to a ford Taurus station wagon with a sunroof. Well done, Ford!
