Very nice, clean, roomy full sized 2014 Ford Taurus. Car has comfortable seating, cloth interior, accommodates seating for 5 passengers and a spacious trunk for your luggage. Other amenities: Bluetooth, Ford Sync (Voice Commands), Premium sound and more
Car is located just outside SJC Airport. ( San Jose Norman Mineta). I have very convenient delivery options at the airport ( driver delivery $$, short term parking $, or home lot pickup for free) (see site terms for rates) You can walk to my home location in about 5 minutes from either terminal.
I always try to keep my cars clean for check out as long as I am given sufficient notice, Expectation is that they be returned in the same condition as they were checked out in. If the car is significantly more dirty than it was on check out, you will be charged a cleaning fee. Smoking and Pets are strictly prohibited in all vehicles and you will be fined through Turo if the policies are violated.
Also, late returns are absolutely not acceptable. The car is due back no later than the listed Turo time (This is to protect you as insurance is covered during the rental periods only) If you're running behind, please modify the trip through Turo to avoid late fees.
If you pick up the vehicle late that's usually not a problem for me as long as you let me know you're running behind. Understanding that schedules get delayed, I always try to be flexible and ask that you do the same if we have to change pick-up plans due to delays. however picking up late DOES NOT mean you can return the car late.
I just ask you bring it back in the condition it was left to you in with the same amount of gas. If you go through any bridges, just reimburse the costs, or let me know and I'll bill you through the app.
The 2014 Ford Taurus offers an extensive range of features in one of the mainstream’s largest and roomiest cars. That includes many of Ford’s signature technologies, of course.
The 2014 Ford Taurus, a full-size sedan. The standard powerplant is a naturally aspirated V6. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is an option.
New for 2014 is lane-keeping assistance, which is added to the Taurus Driver Assist package. Ford also fine-tunes the car’s wheel designs and content configurations.
Nearly a foot longer than the midsize Ford Fusion, the Taurus has an imposing presence that’s complemented by a high shoulder line and sculpted hood. The Taurus carries a number of premium standard features, too, such as wiper-activated halogen headlights, LED taillamps, 17-inch aluminum wheels and integrated exterior blind-spot mirrors. Ford’s “Easy Fuel” capless fuel filler is standard as well, as are chrome exhaust tips.
Higher trims can heighten the car’s upscale focus with content such as LED parking lamps, heated exterior mirrors, a power moonroof and 18- through 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The Taurus appropriately has full-sized accommodations in its cabin, which is highlighted by a clean, symmetrical dashboard design. A further eye-catching detail is the wide center console that flows naturally up into the slightly recessed center stack. Standard content levels also are relatively impressive, as even the entry Taurus trim has six-way power-adjustable front seats, adjustable rear-seat climate vents and a multi-function steering wheel with a tilt-and-telescoping column. As shoppers move up to higher trims, they’ll find 10-way power-adjustable leather-trimmed seats with a heated and ventilated front row, heated outboard rear seats and a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel on a power-adjustable column. A range-topping seat option brings Ford’s multi-contour front chairs with massage capability.
A 60/40-split folding rear seat is standard, while the car’s trunk capacity of 20.1 cubic feet is well ahead of rivals such as the Toyota Avalon.
The Taurus offers three different engines that provide three different driving experiences. The standard 3.5-liter V6 is naturally aspirated and can produce 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque for confident daily driving. A more fuel-efficient option is the four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. This 2.0-liter unit can produce 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The Taurus SHO then caters to enthusiasts with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that can dial up 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with all engines; all-wheel-drive is offered with the standard engine and standard with SHO trim.
Standard EPA ratings for the Taurus come in at 19/28 mpg city/highway. The high-efficiency EcoBoost engine achieves 22/32 mpg city/highway. The high-performance SHO model is good for 17/25 mpg city/highway.
Another advantage for the Taurus is its wide array of driver-assistance features. Ford’s MyKey teen-driving technology is standard, for example, and optional are a blind-spot monitor, rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, parallel parking assistance and front and rear parking sensors. A display audio system with a 4.2-inch screen, six audio speakers and auxiliary input jack also are standard, as is a 4.2-inch instrument-cluster screen.
A full Sync with MyFord Touch infotainment system is available, complete with an 8-inch touch screen and dual instrument-cluster displays. This system bundles voice recognition, navigation with real-time traffic information, an interface for select smartphone-style apps and Bluetooth for hands-free calling and audio streaming. Finally, on the topic of audio, key options here include a 12-speaker Sony sound system, HD Radio, satellite radio and multiple USB ports.
