'The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.'

'When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.'

'And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.'

'An elective despotism was not the government we fought for.' - Thomas Jefferson

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....
