My 1999 Ford Taurus is one of the most reliable cars I have owned. It is a tiny car with great adjustable seats. I am short and the seat allows me to move it forward and backwards, and up and down. There is also an adjustable lumbar option on the seat for your back. I like that the car sits low because it makes it cozy and makes it harder for the sun to hurt your eyes. Driving the car feels pretty smooth until you reach 80-90 miles per hour. There really is not a reason to be going that fast so it is not a big deal. The handling of the car itself is also very smooth and simple. It does not rattle and the air conditioning unit is amazing and works incredibly fast. This car is a great starter car for any college student like myself because it is reliable and easy to manage.
Story
I enjoyed driving down the highway and driving smoothly with the windows down in the evening.
Pros
My favorite features on the Taurus are definitely the adjustable seating and lumbar option for ones back. If you are short like I am it means so much that I can move my seat up and down and closer to the steering wheel. The Steering Wheel is also adjustable and it has a pretty good range of motion. The other pro is the heating/ AC unit. The car heats up almost instantly which is great for the Winter time when it gets colder. The AC is also powerful and works wonderfully. I like that the car sits a little low so that light does not get in as much too. The car itself is very spacious and has... (more)
Cons
The only negative aspects of the car itself is the rattling of the wheel and entire front part of the car when I go anything above 75 miles per hour. This is not a big deal because that is not the speed limit anywhere, but I have noticed at times when I am on the highway and maybe going down a hill that it rattles a bit. The gas mileage is not that great if you drive a lot. Over the summer I drove about 200 miles every week and had to fill up the tank completely almost each time whereas with my previous car I did not. The radio is also very outdated and has not AUX chord. Over all good car.

I've had my Ford Taurus for 10 years now, my parents bought it for me in high school. It only had 1 previous owner, an older lady who brought it in for regular check ups and only put on 40k miles in 6 years. It was a bargain ($6000) from the dealership, he wanted to move it quickly because there was a rumored defect of this model because of roof leakage. It turned out the defect was in this model, and after it sat in a storm it was drenched inside. My parents aired it out and got it fixed, I think the insurance covered it. The biggest con is that the "check engine" light has been on for 7 years, and no one can diagnose why. The paint job is a little scratched up and there are rust spots around the tires, but I drive in Minnesota winters. The only major problem it's had is some coolant ... (more)
Story
I live through Minnesota winters, one afternoon after a 30 inch snowfall, I hit a patch of ice and swerved off the highway into a low ditch. The car deeply tilted over into the snow, it almost looked completely on it's side. When the tow truck came, he said it wouldn't be easy. He had to call 3 guys to come help because the drop was almost 15 feet down. They warned me that the only way to get ... (more)
Pros
Low cost, good gas mileage. Very low maintenance car, and parts are very cheap and common.
Cons
Has gone in the ditch a few times, rust spots came early, there was bad leakage after rain storms but was eventually fixed.
