Have you rode in a Taurus recently? We have one, my five yr. olds can sit in the back seat, & have to lean over to touch each other & cant touch me in the drivers seat, not even with their feet!! I love it, but they seem to have some transmission problems!
My dad bought a Sable in 1993. It had the most comfortable seats of any vehicle I've ever set in. He finally traded it last year (or what was left of it) for a Ford 500, which is now renamed back to the Taurus. But of course, the seats in the 500 are heated and comfortable too.
I drove a Taurus for years and then I thought I would get more room by trading it in for an Explorer. Boy was I wrong! The Explorer can hold 4 people (2 in the front and 2 in the back, there is not a rear-middle seatbelt). The Taurus could hold 5 people (2 in the front and 3 in the back). Additionally, headroom in the Taurus was superior to the Explorer. They can call it a full-size, a mid-size, I don't care. It is a pretty roomy vehicle.
Yes, the day before I paid the darn thing off, it broke down on me and left me without wheels for a week! She's up and running now though. Aside from the thermostat, she's been a good truck. 2000 Ford Explorer 4x4 with 140,000 miles on it. She's had 2 sets of tires, 1 set of brakes, 1 new battery, 1 thermostat, and 1 thermostat housing. And countless oil changes! I don't reckon I can complain too much.

The 500 is the new Taurus. The original Taurus was discontinued for everything except fleet last year, and then they realized that the 500 wasn't selling because no one was familiar with the name, thus they killed that name and renamed it Taurus.
Believe it or not....my first big car purchase was a Taurus.....it had a 4 banger in it....and wouldnt get out of it's own way.....Big mistake....according to the salesman....it was a big hit with the public....but for some reason....when I went to trade it in...it was the coldest car in town....Hmmm....Had a little problems with it....but I agree....the transmissions are the weak point of these cars....
I'm glad that you all have had luck with the death traps ford sells as cars/trucks. ford has long proven profits over safety is the motto they live by, while allowing those folks that buy them thinking they were safe cars/trucks are being killed.
