2014 Ford Taurus – FAIL


2014 Ford Taurus SE
$26,790 base MRSP

Overall Impressions: F

So I left the awful Jeep Grand Cherokee and was handed the keys to a Ford Taurus–which had just as bad of a rear view mirror.

You simply cannot drive this car with the mirror blocking your view. This car is unsafe.

TMS (Tall Man’s Score): F

How Ford can design so many good cars (like the Edge) and have such a poorly designed Ford Taurus is a mystery. But this thing is awful.

One more that, no matter what your height, you would be wise to spend a long test drive in the front seat to be sure the rear view mirror doesn’t interfere with your vision.

Terrible design.

Thankfully, the rental agency next gave me the keys to a Hyundai Sonata, which I’ve rented before (and which I knew had a reasonable rear view mirror).
