I bought this car new in 97 for $17k
with all possible options. I've driven
60k miles in 5 years with practically
no problems! I bought an extened
warranty for 7 years and feel safe.
This is a quality car with all possible
options for much less money than Camry
or Maxima. I recommend buying 2 yr old
loaded SEL Taurus for $13k + $1k for
extended warranty and driving it till
100k mi. I'm not sure it will survive
afterwards, but by that time you will
want a new car anyway. However, you
will save a lot of money for the next
Handling, quietness, 6 seats, center
