We traded in a 97 Taurus on the 2003
Taurus wagon. This model was chosen
due to our need to combine extra space
and decent gas mileage. Price was an
option and resale value not important
as we keep our cars for a long period
Personally, I don't think you can beat
this model for reliability, room,
comfort and price. We did not buy new
vehicle but chose a program car with
13,300 miles on it. This saved on cost
& depreciation. Having had a van in
the past we wouldn't be getting 24mgp
as we are averaging in overall
mileage. Very satisfied with this
vehicle! A good sensible vehicle!
Adjustable pedals was an important
consideration as my wife is short.
This way it is safe for her to drive as
she is proper distance from steering
wheel. Also like electric drivers seat
& electric lock features with keyless
None- We desired the lower horsepower
engine (155hp) over the Duratech model
as it has been very reliable and gives
enough zip in our opinion for driving.
