I am looking into gettin a new car and I don't know which one is the better car. I am looking at a 2001 Ford Taurus and a 2002 Nissan Sentra. I like the look of the sentra so much more than the taurus but the taurus is cheaper. They both have the same amount of mileage (roughly 60k). The taurus is white and the sentra is red. I have test driven both. The sentra jumps a bit going from 1st to second, but runs smoothly from there. My step dad told me that it was just cause the idle is too high.. confused it drove smoothly going into all of the other gears. The taurus ran really smooth. The taurus is a really long car and I am more so used to driving something compact... Anyone have any experiences with either type of car, have any suggestions, or otherwise wanna give me 2 cents?
