Ford Taurus
A Most Average Car

(With a Special Touch)

Edmunds history says it was the "Best Selling Car in America" for a while, and started out "with a smooth, jellybean-like body."


It was:

Number 7 (close to average) on the Edmunds 2002 Top Ten Sales List  

Number 6 on the Edmunds 2001 Top Ten Sales List 

Number 6 on the Edmunds 2000 Top Ten Sales List:

"It wasn't so long ago that the Taurus toted the "Best Selling Car in America" title (captured by the Camry in 2000). Ford hopes that a 2000 redesign will reawaken buyers' enthusiasm for the Taurus (although the car's hold on the rental car market has always been secure)."

Side Even in 2002 ratings, acceleration is fair, fuel economy is ok, ride quality is good, handling is good, noise is "low enough,"... solid scores of 4-8 (of 10) across the board.  Total score of 57-60, depending on model, versus All Midsize Cars' average of 57.  Basically, it's in the middle of the pack of the Midsize's...

Quote of the moment
On the whole, yes, I would rather be the Chief Justice of the United States, and a quieter life than that which becomes at the White House is more in keeping with the temperament, but when taken into consideration that I go into history as President, and my children and my children’s children are the better placed on account of that fact, I am inclined to think that to be President well compensates one for all the trials and criticisms he has to bear and undergo.
~ William Howard Taft (1857–1930), U.S. president. Letter, Butt to his sister-in-law, Clara F. Butt, March 4, 1910. Archie Butt, Taft and Roosevelt: The Intimate Letters of Archie Butt, Military Aide, 1: 294, Doubleday, Doran & Company (1930).

Butt was citing Taft’s reply to James C. Hemphill, Democrat, longtime editor of the Charleston News and Courier, upon being asked if he liked being President. ~
