2003 Ford Taurus Centennial 3.0 24v Duratec from North America
Nice, roomy, and powerful, but not a sports car
Fuel system needed to be cleaned due to poor gas mileage.
Window regulator replaced at 47,000.
This Taurus is my 3rd so I have to be pretty satisfied with the car. It is sharp with the black clear-coat and alloy rims. The car has all the creature comforts including: parchment leather seats, power everything, power sunroof, alarm, and a six-disc CD changer. The Taurus handles well, but could be a little tighter taking the turns. Perhaps a sport-tuned suspension would do the trick. I have to say that I am not dissatisfied with the gas mileage as of late. I'm getting 30+ miles per gallon on the highway and still getting in the low 20's on average. Anyone wanting to buy a Taurus used should purchase a service warranty with it just to be on the safe side.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
