I love my car. Easy on gas, comfortable. The only drawback is, I bought it used and the previous owner didn't have the sync turned on and Ford says they can't do it afterward. Must be done at the time of original purchase.
I have had a great experience with the 2016 Ford Taurus SHO. It is quiet, comfortable and powerful. There have been no issues with its reliability since I purchased it new -- with 60,000 miles now. It has all the desired conveniences and I always feel safe driving it.

The disappointing part for me was buying a car with SYNC in 2018 and it not having the option of remote starting from a smartphone! Ford really dropped the ball on that one! Quite disappointing! The AWD is a good feature but it comes at a big gas cost. I'm using twice as much gas as I did in my previous 2008 Chevy Impala.
Great Car for daily driving. For someone 6' or taller the legroom can feel a little cramped on long drives. The Limited edition really has all that one needs. My only real negative for the Ford Taurus is that the Catalytic converter have a very short life and are not cheap to replace. The Mass Air Flow sensor seems to be better on this one but there is still time for it to go out too. My last two Taurus' had problems with both.
Ford has been making vehicle long before most of the present car manufacturers and I am quite flummoxed at the fact that to date they are incapable of producing a reliable and trouble-free vehicle. Toyota and other car manufacturers came along long after Ford and they are capable of making cars like the Camry which surpasses the Ford Taurus in performance and reliability any day of the week.
Because of the age of my Taurus I have to look for a different car. It has been my favorite car. 19 years and it still looks great. Unfortunately the undercarriage is rusting out according to my mechanic. Thinking about another Taurus or Escape. Being a senior citizen not sure which way to go. No matter what I choose I know it will be a great Ford. Thanks for all the great work and service you do. Both my sons also have Ford vehicles. Thanks again. Keep up the good work!
I purchased a 2013 Ford Taurus. Absolutely loved the car and did a lot to get it. I took one trip down to Georgia and now I'm having the darndest time getting it home due to the fuel pump going out. We made it to our destination and it died. I had my kids and husband in the car, we all could've died right in the middle of the highway during Atlanta's traffic. Shame on Ford and their entire team for failing to make sure at least the fuel pump properly work or at least have it under the recall. First we replaced the module. Worked for a bit. Then discovered the whole pump went out. It ran for about 3 days and quit again before we could even get it home. I have spent so much money on a 2013 I should not have to spend. Under 100,000 miles clean under the hood.
I checked the Ford recall website and lucky me the 2013 Ford Taurus is under recall but not my vin number so nothing can be done. Such as shame that I paid so much money for something that's not my fault. My family talked so much about Fords and I took a chance and now my car is doing the very thing my family mentioned. My Kia Sorento is more reliable. Just note I hope Ford knows I will not buy another Ford and my children will not get a Ford when they are teens, I don't trust that my kids won't get stuck on the side of the road. To top it all off by husband works for Ford and is highly upset that his wife couldn't be safe on the road. I've spent more money in a 6 year old car than I have on a 2003. Such as shame. I hope this makes it to Ford and they know I don't recommend their cars.
Every time I turn on the car, it makes an intermittent electrical humming/buzzing sound. The car makes the sound whether it's sitting in idle or when I'm driving. It is coming from the rear of the car and sometimes sounds like a static in/out buzzing/humming sound. I've had a couple of mechanics listen to it and they said it's coming from underneath. One mechanic told me it's something with the electrical power steering and nothing can be done. You hear the sound more in the middle of the back seat on the floor. It is aggravating. This is a brand new car and I know this is not normal. I am taking it to Ford today because I know this has to be a factory defect. A car should not be humming/buzzing and sounding like a static noise. That is not normal. It's a brand new car!
I am the main driver of this car. It's a good car to drive, easy to handle, very good gas mileage, very easy to get in and out of, easy to load. Very easy to see and reach the controls. And the trunk has a very high safety rating. But we have had a lot of work done on it, seems to break down a lot. The heat and air conditioning did not work right from the start and still do not work right. But I really liked the style and color. Very sporty looking car but also luxurious looking.
I like the Ford Taurus because it is a bigger car that can hold lots of passengers and is also rated one of the safest vehicles on the road. It is a trustworthy and innovative company. It was in my price range and they are a very reliable vehicle. It is a perfect car for a family and/or for longer family trips with lots of room for everyone.
