Gen I. I like the Gen I dash, and the bigger lightbar on the Sable. The Gen II is a close second, and the Gen V is third.

Gone elsewhere in search of a pleasant Taurus/Sable forum run by people who actually care.

You guys all know what I selected! The GEN3 is the ultimate old Taurus! The GEN2 comes in second, my wagon was a pretty nice car when it was running good.

I bet I will get a GEN5 someday though.

Gen V, I love it.

I love all generations of Taurus's, but I'd say they've been getting better with age, I just wish they had kept the SHO :/

i chose g2. we've had all gen's, so i speak from experience. i cant speak for the lower models. cause all we've had are SEs and SHOs. but in stock form the suspension on g2 seemed to be set up much better than the g4. the g3 with the vulcan or tec is an awesome highway car. makes ya feel like ur in nascar. the g2 is a perfect blend of being round and square. the windows are a perfect size. and i love the fact the sides are flat. the buldings exterior door on the g3/4 makes me hate driving them, plus they are very dent prone.
the interior on my g2 is the best out of all gens. the sho seats hug like none other, the dash has an awesome shape and can use aftermarket radios without need of a $60 face. i can move the climate control down in the radio spot and the radio up top if i feel like it. in stock form with stock radio it had buttons to change radio next to gauge cluster.. slightly easier to reach when driving. good idea on fords part.
next on the list is g4 as far as styling and power. blah on the suspension and seats. seats are rock solid. but the dark charcoal interior is a nice touch. the g3 rear end is what kills it for me. it just slopes down too much. the front end on the 98/99 looks fine. and the interior is bareable too due to the better than g4 seats. and our g3 has a limited interior package and got us some awesome seats.. not cloth, not leather.. i think its tweed? no.. i dunno.
thats all for now. a book to come later.

I think you like your G2 the most. lol

Anyways, I like the G1, you know every once in a while walkin to the car i get a certain perspective and its like, man the car looks good. The G1/2 vulcan is by far the easiest set up to work on.
I like the G1. next would be g4. g2/g3 don't matter, they are the same as my other two choices.

I chose Gen1 mostly because I own one, but I also would love to have a white 91 SHO Plus!

Ford Lincoln Mercury Sable? A personal conveyance named after its inventor, an
assassinated ruler, a character from Greco-Roman myth and a small furry mammal.

2 > *

Although I still want that black on white '91+! That is the ultimate Taurus IMO.
