Default 2017 Taurus SHO

Iím just kicking the tires on a used 17 SHO. For a DD. What should I look for on these cars. Were there any recalls, etc...

It still has the warranty obviously. Any of you guys own or drive one ?

No tune as still under warranty. I'd say it's a solid 13 second 1/4 mile with no mods. Get 18/19 city and 25/26 highway. Have winter tires and wheels for winter and its very good with the all wheel drive..

I have a 2013 MKS Ecoboost. Very happy with it. Moves well for such a big car.

Had a 2012 MKS and loved it. Same car as a SHO.

No major issues, and the thing was a beast 0-60.

Have an '11 Flex, which is basically an SHO wagon.

They are solid cars. The EcoBoost mileage isn't the greatest. It likes good oil and premium gas...The motors have a tendency to start building up carbon deposits in the intake runners and on the intake valves (common turbo direct injection issue, no just to EcoBoosts). You're in the later years, so the PTU shouldn't be an issue like earlier years. Make sure the tires have been rotated and are of similar wear, if they aren't you can still have premature wear/failure of the PTU. People bang on about turbo failures, but I really haven't seen THAT many premature failures. As long as you're doing your proper maintenance and putting good oil in it, it should be a very reliable DD.

How much do you guys think is a fair price for a low mile 17 SHO ?

Get a Fusion Sport. The interior of the Taurus feels smaller than the Fusion, and the Fusion is a better looking car imo.

I've driven a few and didn't find the seats uncomfortable? What is fact, is that the interior of the Fusion blows the Taurus away. WTF was Ford thinking with that god awful Taurus interior???

I had an '11 Fusion that I loved. It was super comfy.

I did drive a newer Fusion Sport, and honestly did not like it at all. It was wallowly and there is a TON of torque management dialed in to 1st and 2nd gear. It honestly felt SUPER sluggish. In theory it should be quicker than my Flex, but felt WAY slower. But then again, all the newer EcoBoost's I've driven, seem to have a ton more torque management dialed in the lower gears.

My SHO had the premium seats with balls cooler. Different opinion I guess.

I traded it in on my raptor because my wife hardly used it. I would definitely buy another. I honestly donít understand the SHO hate on here. We traveled in it several times and it was awesome on the road with 25+mpg.

I don't think there's SHO hate, necessarily, but claiming almost beating GTR stock, is a probably the grounds for some of the razzing...there's some EcoBoost hate, but it's a half GM forum afterall.

Yea Ford really does the Ecoboosts no favors with the stock tuning. My wifes Explorer Sport is the same way. You'd think with all the torque the Eco's make, they'd be a rocket out of the hole. Sadly, that's not even close to true!

Default 2017 Taurus SHO

We bought a 2014 SHO new without the performance package. 53,000 Miles and absolutely zero problems.

I love the gobs of interior space. Especially from side to side. I absolutely hate when I shut a car door and the door hits my arm. Most cars are way to narrow now but not the Taurus.

My only problem is, I wish I had a second SHO.

Does the 2017 SHO run on E85 stock ?

Or does it need to be tuned for that fuel ?
