None of the above!

I can appreciate that they haven’t taxpayer backed loans or handouts, but Ford still makes ugly vehicles using UAW labor.

The 2010 Taurus is a very sharp looking car.

I have a 2008 Mercury Sable, which looked like a Taurus. I like my car, but the Sable’s been discontinued.

The 2010 Taurus is a complete redesign, looks more like a Euro sports car, maybe a VW sedan.
