I bought my 2000 Ford Taurus about 3 years ago. My grandma had purchased it new and my sister had been driving it for about a year. I knew my grandma had taken good care of it and it had low mileage (under 60k). I am a student commuting to school so I did put a lot of miles on it. By now it has approximately 90k. I have poured thousands of dollars into it for repairs over the years. It constantly broke down. There was a consistent list of things that needed to be repaired. It was just a matter of what was priority. Now it just blew a head gasket and is basically done. It didn't even hit 100k miles. The car was a complete lemon!
I liked the look of the car and the air conditioner was always amazing. I have to give it that!
To tell you the truth I bought this vehicle without even looking at it. But since then I have only had to repair the regular things sensors brakes windshield wipers all cosmetic stuff. I love the get up it has. Awesome acceleration and plus she sounds awesome. I love all the room and the sound system. plus this car is over 10 years old and she still cleans up very very nice. It has over 137K on it but drives like new if you ask me! Great Purchase awesome investment fun to Drive. And I work for Chevy. We should make cars like this all day long!
sound system, very roomy, color, bucket seats, peppy engine.
I bought my 2000 Taurus LX new. So far I am very pleased with it. I currently have 44,000 miles on it. I also have a 2001 Toyota Corolla, which is a good car on the city streets, but on the highway the Taurus is far superior.
Bought this car new because of the less
than invoice 'ad' in the paper. Car
has been great except resale. Now has
49k and no repairs, just keeps purring
along. Only complaint is engine pings
in winter. Maybe because it is an LX,
I have no options that can go wrong.
Comfortable seats and tight, but
comfortable ride. Great seat position
for anyone who is 5'10".
Should be standard with 4 wheel disc
brakes. (And make them bigger)
