1999 Ford Taurus
The car has ample room for a big person (like myself) and I love the climate control (1999 was the last year Ford offered this in the Taurus wagon). It is a great grocery wagon and a good vehicle for moderate size building materias, antiquing luggage,,etc. The main weakness of the vehicle is electrical (as Consumer Reports noted years ago), so one needs to pay attention to electrical issues as they come up. Other than that, all other areas I would give a B grade. Maintainence is straightforward. Be sure to let your mechanic know that they will sometimes need to use Ford parts, as some of the after market parts will not work, even if they "look" right.
