New Taurus x owner.

Post by Hootowl » Sun Dec 03, 2017 8:43 pm

Hello I just purchased a 2008 Ford Taurus X limit 3 weeks ago. I am not new to this line of cars models. I have owned a 2007 Five Hundred bought new but traded on a Mercury Grand Marquis because it had more comfortable seats, back in 2013.
Also own a 2011 Ford Flex bought new and my wife’s car. I liked the Freestyle but didn’t like the engine or CVT. The T-Rex seems perfect for me.

Anyway only driven it a couple of hundred miles so still getting used to it.

Been a long time since I been on the Flex Forum. Anyway having owned our 2011 Ford Flex for 5 years now and now the Taurus X. I can compare them. The Flex is nicer in a lot of ways and drives like a town car that sets higher. The T Rex feels like my old Five Hundred meaning more car like and handles better than the Flex and even the Five Hundred if I remember right. At 120,000 miles it is pretty tight still, our Flex has only has 39,000 on it and rides nicer,

But they our different so that why I am here to find out more about the T Rex.

Even though the T-Rex and the Flex share most of the same drivetrain (outside of the EB) I’m sure much of the difference is due to the T-Rex being on the D3 platform and the Flex on the D4.
