I bought my 1995 Taurus GL wagon in
late 2000. The car was a fleet car and
had 80K miles on it. Looking at having
a vehicle that can hold all my mail and
packages, I took one look at the Taurus
wagon and knew it would haul anything.
This car has been through it all. The
car now has 137K miles on it and is
coming to it's end. The 3.0 engine is
still fairly strong, but the
transmission is slipping and the front
end (axle, bearings) is having alot of
problems. But I paid $4,000 for it and
put tons of mail route miles on it. If
this car was never used on a mail
route, I would suspect it lasting well
into 200K miles.
LOTS of cargo space. Fairly comfrtable
ride. 3.0 engine is a gem.
Better electrical. Better front-ends.
Too small gas tank.
