Bought my Taurus used one year old for $11K. It had 20K miles on it, 32 months later it has 96K miles. The only non-scheduled maintenance work done on the car was two TSBs when I got the car one for rainhat extension and one for a noisy serpentine belt tensioner, both done under warranty. I find the seats the most comfortable of any car Ive owned. The car does everything well, nothing fancy just a good honest car. The base engine could use a bit more power when car is fully loaded but is willing and happy. Car is great in the snow. With three kids in college Ive traveled in all kinds of weather from Vermont to Minnesota and always felt safe and in control, great value for the price.
Comfortable seats. Reliability.
More power in base engine. The 24V Duratech I hear is very good. Car rides low in rear when fully loaded.
