Love My Taurus

My Taurus has been a trooper for me. When I bought my Taurus it had 10,075 miles on it, on May 19, I rolled it over to 300,000. I use my 2004 Ford Taurus Wagon for everything, including work. I do a rural mail route, which is 75 miles long with about 15 miles of dirt roads. I have changed the starter twice (on my route) and the alternator once. Done routine maintenance on the brakes and such. The engine and transmission are original and have never been worked on. This is my only car, so I use it for personal use too. I have done most of the repairs on the car myself. I did have a car/deer accident that wiped out the radiator and a/c. The radiator was repaired, but I chose not to fix the a/c (too expensive).

Today I visited our local Ford. I am interested in trading in my 2007 Ford Five Hundred. I hate to do it, because I love my car. I love the roominess in the drivers seat and in the back seat, as a passenger. I love the huge trunk my Five Hundred has too. The problem that I experience, which prevents me from purchasing a new Ford, is that the center console is too wide on the 2014 Taurus. I feel cramped. I am not a small person. I actually felt more comfortable in the Fusion. I won't get the Fusion because the back seat is too cramped for passengers. I am hoping the design of the 2015 Taurus has some modifications to give the driver more space. I suppose my problem that is most bothersome is the height/length of the console, especially at my thigh. Maybe the 2014 console is a bit wider than my car too. I would also like the designers to know the honeycomb grill draws attention, along with the chrome. I get so many comments on my Five Hundred from complete strangers. My car is black and has the chrome package.
