I purchased my 1997 Ford Taurus used. The car was used for County services, which means it was serviced with the best upkeep and maintenance available. The car was at only 60,000 miles when purchased, but only lasted about a year before it started (and has yet to stop) having problem after problem. I've put more money into this car in the last two years than I actually paid for it at first. If I had any other options I'd be buying a different car. These constant issues make me want to avoid Ford entirely in the future. The car interior looks great and holds up well, but that isn't worth the constant issues under the hood.
Story
My first few dates with my girlfriend were spent cruising around town and having long, amazing conversations in this car. Not to mention our first kiss!
Pros
The interior of the car is great, easy to clean and very spacious. The trunk is extremely large for such a small car and has come in handy for the commuting student to keep backpacks and school projects in!
Cons
The car does not seem to hold up to mileage as well as other Fords seem to be known to. It's barely at 100,000 miles and already seems to have a huge, costly problem at least once a month. I have put more money into repairs (above and beyond regular maintenance) than I paid for the car at first. Not to mention the low gas mileage means I'm constantly filling the tank.

The Taurus X is a very practical, comfortable and economical vehicle for it's class. Apart from a low tow rating, there is little else to find fault with it.
Story
We used this vehicle to camping on many occasions. Each and every one was very memorable.
Pros
The Taurus X has a large windscreen and is easy to get in and out of the driver's seat. The dash is uncluttered and the cup holders are sturdy and hold drinks safely. The passenger area is comfortable and easy to navigate through. The headroom is generous and, the Taurus X has a decent third row seat. There is a lot of storage in the back too. The engine is decent and gives reliable acceleration with no loss of power. The car is very quiet when running.
Cons
The Taurus X has a low tow rating and struggles towing anything much larger than a trailer with a smallish boat. The steering feels very light with little feedback, yet can feel sticky at times. It takes getting used to.
