When Ford first came out with the Freestyle, my husband and I really liked the look of it. In fact, we went and test drove one, but at the time we couldn’t afford a brand new vehicle.
A couple of years later, it was time to trade in my 1999 Mercury Villager minivan. I began looking online again at the Taurus X (we knew they replaced the Freestyle-same thing just different name). When I found my Taurus X, I fell in love with it! I loved the room, loved the way it drove, just loved it! Now after a year of owning it, I still love it. In fact, I think I love it even more! =) I find it very telling that I have run into other Taurus X owners in parking lots (we don’t know each other at all) and have struck up conversations about how we both love our vehicles! I am going to drive this vehicle til it dies, which I know will be a long time because I am going to take great care of it and Ford builds them to last! I’m just sad that they discontinued the Taurus X line. So far, I haven’t seen or driven anything even comparable (but that’s ok because I’m not planning on getting rid of mine!).
