I looked a few cars and few equaled the price to value that this car had. Sure it doesn't hold the value of a Camry or a Accord, but then again, if you keep your cars for 150,000 miles, who cares. This car and the one I bought before it (97) are great cars. I put 145,000 miles on my old Taurus and no problems. Great price too.
Great reliability, comfortable seats and decent fuel economy for being a V6.
Moonroof at the SE level, power seats too would be nice on really long road trips.
