Interesting article about Ford and the death of the Taurus. I used to own a 92 Taurus which for the most part was reliable. We ended up selling it 2 years ago for $200 in a summer garage sale. IMHO, they were nice looking cars and a good value for the money.
I can’t help but to think if Ford really wanted to turn their business around then they need to give people what they want(need). Create a nice looking family sedan like the Taurus that gets 50 to 60 mpg and has a 5 star crash rating. I would buy 1 or hell maybe even 2. A move like that could put Ford on top for years.
Update: Just saw and ad at the NyTimes for Ford Bold Moves .
