I already have recommended it and had another family member buy one. It has more power than your average car. It looks nice but not like it is trying too hard. Quite a few bells and whistles too. I have had more comfort cars but this isn't bad and I bought it because I wanted something that was fast. There are plenty of cars out there that are faster but most aren't.
I initially purchased this vehicle to provide for around town use and some long distance travel as a third vehicle. After inspecting the Taurus after the purchase and updating a few things that I wanted to make perfect, I started driving the car first around town then on a 1200 trip. Around town the performance was more than adequate and quickly discovered that the mileage was better than advertised. The Taurus has provided a consistent 20+ MPG around town and will easily keep up with the Audi, BMW and Benz vehicles. The Camry was initially considered, but its size, performance, interior noise levels and presence on the road was inferior to the Taurus. Highway driving again revealed a surprise in that the vehicle was very stable, quite and delivered a consistent 30 MPG at 70+ MPH. After a 600 initial leg of the trip I was not tired or stiff. All the systems worked as advertised by Ford and no defects have been found. Since I am an Aerospace Engineer as well as a military and commercial pilot, I am very detailed with inspections and assessing the engineering and performance aspects of a vehicle, aircraft or motor. General assessment is that this vehicle is worth a look if you are not so tied to a brand that nothing else will do.
