First of all, the car is not wut I call pretty, but that's an opinion. Second, people aren't buying it anymore, it used to be the best selling mid-size sedan, but now, it fell to 3rd, beaten by Camry and Accord. My dad rented the Taurus before. It didn't even fit in my garage!! But that doesn't mean the interior is a lot bigger than Accord and Camry! The Taurus has no driving fun at all, but then, this car is for North America, and people here dom't seem to care about driving fun. Its engine is not as smooth and quiet as Camry and Accord, even with the Duratec V6. What the Taurus has are equipments and low price, but still it doesn't outsell its rivals.
