Ups and downs mostly downs

2001 Ford Taurus SEL 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this with 69,000 miles in 07. shortly after the purchase the oil lines went. Ran good for a while after that until recently at just over 106,000 miles. In a matter of a week the ac compressor went out then the battery died and the ac compressor going bad led to it locking up and popping the belt. Yea the car does have good throttle response but the gas mileage is horrible in the city and ive just run into so many problems with it and im scared to think of whats going to happen next. Also if you have the digital climate control and want to put in a new radio the dash kit is 170$. Also there is a bad seal in the trunk and trunk will always be wet especially around the spare tire.
The throttle response is nice. Especially when gettin onto the interstate. When it works the ac works really well. lots of room in the trunk is nice too. as well as the passengers int the back seat have plenty of leg room
O where to begin on this. The leak in the trunk could have been sealed better so it didnt leak. And ive had alot of mechanical problems with mine so under the hood could be better. I also have the leather seats which have been cooked by the sun and are just nasty lookin now.
