Ford Taurus X Earns a “Recommended Buy” from Consumer Reports

More great news on the quality front! Consumer Reports conducted testing on 4 mid-sized 3-row SUVs including Taurus X, Toyota Highlander, Subaru Tribeca and Buick Enclave with the following great results:· Only the Ford Taurus X and Subaru Tribeca are “Recommended” from this group
· Taurus X’s lower height makes it handle and feel more like a sedan, and it posted one of the highest speeds in Consumer Reports’ avoidance maneuver

· Highlander is the first Toyota model not automatically receiving a Recommended designation because Toyota’s Annual Car Reliability Survey showed several other models had problems

· In a test extra, the new Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans proved disappointing noting:
· General lack of grip and agility, long braking distances, engine noise, complicated optional audio system panel gaps, sharp edges, and a flimsy-feeling center console

· Access to the third row can be difficult with the Swivel ‘n Go feature because second-row seats don’t flip forward to facilitate entry
