Comfort, quality, great value, great ride very reliable
None at all.
I drove a '95 Mercury Sable for years and this car is better in every way. The suspension is softer, the ride is better and quieter, the chassis is more solid, it is bigger and more comfortable. I have ridden in my brother's 2003 Volkswagen Passat, which has nearly the same MSRP as a new Taurus, and would put the Taurus up against the Passat any day of the week.
I am not a big fan of the rear brake drums, though.
I like the 200 hp engine, but is seems to propel the car a little more sluggishly than a 200 hp engine should.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
