Default Thoughts on the Sonata Vs Tarus?

I am looking at a 2011 Hyundai Sonata Luxury and Ford Taurus SEL. I have driven 2 of each car. The Sonata has more features and seems to ride better.

Does anyone have an opinion on these cars?

Thanks for your opinions!!

I've gotten the Sonata a couple times as a rental, and it seems like a decent vehicle. If you're buying in Pensacola, I hear the level of service at our dealership (I won't mention his name) is horrible.

Had a couple of loaded Taurus' as company cars and they were excellent cars and I'm not a Ford fan. Put about 50K a year on them. I'd go with the best deal and warranty. Hyundai has come a long ways over the last few years too.

Had a Sonata and really liked it. Hyundai has really come a long ways from when they first hit the US back in the '80s. Not a fan of the service department at the Pensacola dealership.....

Thanks. My company gave me two vehicles to chose from and after driving 2 each of the Taurus SEL and Sonata Limited, I chose the Sonata. It is made in Montgomery. I decided on the Taurus SEL prior to driving the car but the ride was smoother and had a lot more luxury than the SEL. The seats were more comfortable and almost 200HP from a 4 cylinder. The warranty is pretty good, too. However, I hate to give up my Crown Vic.

For personal vehicles, it will be a Ford product from now on...no bailout. I love my Mountaineer!
