I bought my ford taurus used with 115,000kms on it. Now with 320,000kms I am considering replacing it. The frame has rusted and the tranny is on its way out. It's built tough. In accidents where other cars would've crumpled, this taurus came out with a only a few dents and some repairable alignment issues. I take excellent care of my vehicles and they do tend to last a long time. This one is the best so far.
TOUGH. Takes a real beating and continues to perform well.
BETTER QUALITY STEREO. I lost the stereo within the first few months and was unable to properly replace it.
