Handling Of A Car, Convenience Of An Suv. The Taurus X is a full-size crossover with three rows of seats and room for up to seven passengers. It is located under the passenger side center seat. It's felt most under high-rev acceleration and middle- and high-speed passing. One thing I have noticed in my area is how quick these cars are moving off the used lot. I hope ford brings this back in the coming years I think it is a great alternative to the minivan. I'm hoping someone here with experience can chime in.
Fuel Octane Rating - Always used 87 per the book. After owning it for only 6 mths, I began noticing problems with the shifting. To be honest I had never herd of them but the nicest salesman I had ever met told us it would work perfect for our kid transporting needs. Don't waste your time with additives that promise to raise the octane level in your gas. A very good, stable on-center feel makes the Taurus X especially relaxed and ideal for long highway hauls.
Going to switch to Conoco, Phillips, etc for the next 3-5 tanks and see if there is a difference. So, anyone got any ideas? The interior of the Ford 2008 Taurus X, on the other hand, elicits mixed reactions. Mileage - The mileage has since inched its way down to about 17. The Taurus name is well known, with the Taurus sedan having been on our roads for more than two decades, but the Taurus X surprises many people. It has had reoccurring problems with the transmission and the seat heater has went out two times. When I did they refused and said i waited too long.
It's a great alternative to the 45k I was going to spend. Been using 7-11, Shamrock, et al. Ford made some upgrades and renamed it after concluding that people didn't know what it was. Tires - The problem started before the tires were bought. During my drives, I talked to many people interested in this new vehicle.
I drove 3 hours to see the Tahoe. The Freestyle's wasn't the best executed. This garage was not able to do the work on the car, so I had to take it to a different Ford Garage who then told me that nothing was wrong with the car. Anyone got any opinions on plugs or tips on replacing them? She loved it but realized it would only work for a family of five or more if it had bucket seats in the second row. You might say the Taurus X is the ex-Freestyle.
Ford made some upgrades and renamed it after concluding that people didn't know what it was. I really don't know what else I can say about this car, other than great! My sales rep Mr Cholo and Duane were on top. Assuming you are maintaining your vehicle according to schedule I would check your tire pressure first. One big flag that went up was the tires. The restyle and rename were a chance for Ford to fix some of this stuff. It's one of the safest models on the road of any size, from any manufacturer.
The third row seats will fold down into this well,giving a flat cargo floor. Many spring-loaded seats require no strength to raise, and some require no effort to lower, but you seldom get both. Since buying this car new in february of 09, I have had to replace the breaks at least 4 times, turned roaders 2 times and replaced them 2 times, break fluid has had to be completely refilled 4 times 3 of them in past 6 mts. The Taurus X is just the right height for ease of entry and exit. With nearly 20K on the odometer, the car is rock solid over all surfaces.
I am also very impressed with the amount of usable space in the X. So looks all 93 folks who have viewed this have no ideas. We wanted a wagon, which is hard to find now. Tires alone could easily make the difference you're seeing. It rides great and it's very peppy.
