You are in the Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable
What is this discussion about?
Ford Taurus, Sedan
2010 Ford Taurus SEL First Drive - First Impressions: The 2010 Ford Taurus differentiates itself from the interim Five Hundred-based Taurus with high style and high tech, but we're not yet convinced it's the flagship sedan Ford hopes Americans will aspire to. (more)
2010 Ford Taurus Limited Full Test - Bottom Line: A great big car, if a big car is really what you need. (more)

I test drove a limited this past weekend. I currently drive a 2008 300C with the hemi(Lease). I was very much impressed with the vehicle! It felt very solid and stable on the road and above else that's what I look for in a vehicle. I found the interior to be very spacious and nicely laid out. I was surprised at the engine as well! When I got on it, it got up and went! Overall, I was very impressed with the whole package. I have owned S-class and E-class Mercedes, Cadillac STS and given the prices of today, I would pay the price for a limited(of course, after the requisite haggling with the dealer) after my lease is up! I wii, however, drive the SHO before my decision is made. If it is something that I WANT, I have no qualms about paying for it!

That great raymmer. It is a very nice vehicle.
Did you notice any harsh ride characteristics from the 19" rims? I have not driven one yet but think the 18" SEL rims would be a bit smoother.
Ford is making great strides forward and I can't wait to see the 2011 Explorer. It might be "deja vu all over again"!

No, I did not note any harshness, however, I'm riding on 20" rims now with my 300 so the Taurus felt much smoother. One thing for sure; I won't get 20 incher again!
Will probably drive the SHO this weekend, but probably won't buy before June/July timeframe next year.
