Design Problems

First the clock looses time about every 2 wks.-the aver.mpg does not reflect miles to empty gauge-USB port location in console are exposed to dust and dirt-they should have some sort of cap/cover-USB pin can easily be damaged w/in use-console is very small and could be redesigned for more storage–Blind spot light on r/view mirror blends in w/followiong traffic–Blinking RED light would be easier to see at a glance–blind spots w/backing up-rear seat head rests-small windows-window in tailgate could be lower–the speedometer should be CENTRALLY located with larger no.s so you do not have to “”study”" the speed -gear shift indicator hard to see at a glance -diff. color[RED]-the same with the head light icon–ALL THESE should be able to see easily not look for- eyes on the ROAD not looking for gauges–I hope someone reads this–Thank You

Brad B Hey Gene S. I haven't had the clock losing time problems, but more of the problems seem to be those we've all experienced with getting the hang of a new vehicle with all the changes you're not used to having. I know my Fusion had many sub-systems that took about 400 miles of driving to get into with a new routine. Bliss was the hardest to get use to and completely trust. But we adapted.

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.
