Durable, Long-lasting car for a Pizza Delivery Driver
By oo7chick on
1998 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Sedan
Bought this car in January 2010 but didn't start driving it until March because the transmission had been rigged up by previous owners. After shop did what they could to fix the transmission, I put about 36,000 miles on it driving for work and school. Had to get new brakes/pads, alternator, fuel and water pumps, battery and all the fixins. Show it some love and it will last for you!
We bought it with just under 100,000 miles on it and the ending odometer was 135,500 (right on normal for the age of this car).
It was a total loss when someone rear-ended me, but I would recommend this as a car worth the money. We paid $1200 originally and spend about $1500 on repairs needed for this car.
Takes abuse, affordable, good gas mileage, rugged and durable, easy to drive, user-friendly, roomy cabin.
