mixed emotions about this car...

2002 Ford Taurus SES 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
My Taurus has been a mixed bag of good and bad. Had to have carburetor work done on it, replaced the tires and a battery, have had the brakes serviced twice. Now, the fuel level sensor is going out. May or may not work, and it kicks the check engine light on when it's not working. Was told that repairing that involves not only replacing the sensor, but the fuel pump as well? Hmmm... When I last had it serviced at the 3,000 mile interval, the oil was down a quart. Can't find any leaks, and it doesn't appear to be burning oil. Am also being told that the transmission fluid needs to be replaced, but have heard conflicting advice about the best way to do that. Car has 70,000 miles.
Favorite Features
Handles well under most driving conditions. Comfortable, roomy, adequate acceleration
Suggested Improvements
Transmission is slow to respond when taken out of overdrive. Brakes shouldn't need servicing as often. Doesn't warm up in cold weather until it's actually being driven.
