I bought a 2003 Ford Taurus SES in May 2004. It only had 16,000 miles on it. It has been a great car and very reliable. Never needed anything other then one set of brakes and oil changes and I now have 80,000 miles on it. I never got the great gas mileage a lot of others I know did but still reliable. It's got the v-6.
Very reliable and comfortable.
Can't really say much. Been happy with the car. Better gas mileage but that's it. My wife's SUV gets a couple of miles better mileage to the gallon.
