I'd been away from American built cars for decades when I bought the 2012 Ford Taurus and was impressed by the huge strides Ford has made since I owned a Ford Fairmont back in the early 1980's. This Taurus is taut, rattle-free, quiet, and very responsive. The interior is elegant in its simplicity, and the exterior has crisp, clean lines, with a minimal amount of extraneous chrome. The naturally-aspirated V6 has plenty of power for acceleration into traffic, and passing, and gets decent gas mileage. And then there's the trunk -- it's enormous, and will swallow gear like nobody's business. I rack up miles fairly quickly on my cars, commuting to work, and using it in my business. I've found the seats and seating position quite comfortable on long drives, and the visibility entirely satisfactory. Buy this car with confidence. You'll be glad you did.

Great road car. Quiet, smooth ride, plenty of power, and handles well. Good mileage, too. And yes, adequate leg room, I'm 6-3.
