We bought our 2000 Ford Taurus SEL in 2005. It had 86,000 miles on it and was fully loaded; we paid only $5,700 from a private seller. It was in good condition and still is. Since we've only owned the car for 2 years, I cannot tell you the reliability for its lifetime, but since we've owned it, we've only had a couple of problems with it. A couple of weeks after we bought it, some sort of a spring or something broke. Not a big deal; it wasn't a lot of money to have fixed. One speaker sometimes doesn't work on the Mach audio system, which we are going to try and have fixed. Overall this car is a great value for the money.
Sunroof, Mach audio system, leather seats, rear spoiler, power seats/pedals, keypad entry, power everything!
where's the heated seats? HomeLink transmitter. What's up with all the cheap looking plastic inside? Trunk hinges intrude into cargo space.
