Very Very Impressed!

2001 Ford Taurus SE 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this car because I couldn't afford to drive my Tahoe every day anymore at $4.00 per gallon... and Didn't want to give up the utility of the Tahoe. This wagon had 57k on it when I bought it and has 126k on it now. Runs the interstate well at 85, gets 25 mpg, AC is ice cold, heater could be better. Once I got rid of the continental tires and put on GoodYear Triple Treads, this car handles like a race car and will handle all the snow with ease. Have driven to colorado in winter, and florida for vacation few few times and never had any problems. Everything still works. Will keep till it dies!
Stock stereo is really good... seats are very comfortable, wagon will hold just about anything. Feels heavy and safe. Stops on a dime. 3.0 Pushrod engine just keeps running.
No low end grunt when starting out, It had a TAPE PLAYER... NO CD? (you have to be kidding!) Better shocks in back to handle heavy cargo.
