man ! .

the taurus is an entry level car ... i wonder what he was thinking when he imported it in the first place.. the car has no prestige ...
might as well pay the duty for a celica at the same cost .. whatsay ?

the model in your [post is athe current generation shape ... i think 2002 onwards ..

cheers

Probably this guy is a US return and loved his car so much that he wanted to retain it.

A LHD car, I don't think you are allowed to do that.

That Taurus looks awful. And yes, the Taurus is kind of entry level in the US.

Whatever, Ford Taurus is a decent car. It is much cheaper than Camry & Accord. And according to me it looks better (more sporty) as well.

ofcourse it doesnt cost as much ...BECAUSE accords and camrys are higher segment cars ... a taurus is no way even close to the build quality and the driveabilty of the likes of accord and camry..

infact the 4cyl accords and camry are in the same price as that of the the taurus ,moreover basemodel accord is cheaper than taurus

a 3.0L v6 taurus pushes 153 bhp where as a 2.4L 4 cyl. accord and camry both deliver 160 bhp (North american specs) and both Jap cars have better mileage ... not to mention the refined engine ..

looks well we all have our own preferences ... altough i dont see a single sporty line in the taurus..
