2005 TAURUS SE

Bought it used as a previous program car with 27,000 miles. Got a great deal! This car has been worth every dollar. Great second car to run around in. Also purchased a extended warranty, kinda sad that I did, it has not been needed thus far. I just do routine maintenance and drive it. Could have paid $4-5k more for a Honda or Toyota, WHY? This car gets the job done!

Check for rust. Bought 2005 Taufus new as last model sold to public. AT 12 yrs brake lines Rotted out. Ford charged $500 for $80 worth of parts , because they were no longer required to stock them. In 12/19 The bottom of chassis rotted out making car undrivable..Car cost me about $1000 yr to own, so cant complain. Not worth the chance today

I bought the car for my young college children, with the reputation that I heard about this car in the mid 2000's being "rock solid" and unbreakable cars -- so much so that they were used in the car rental business. I bought the car with just under 100k miles 5 years ago for $3250. At 147k miles, the transmission went out - and I had enough of this problematic car. I added up my receipts over 5 years and found I spent over $2200 on maintenance and repair -- from tires, brakes, rotors, water pump, plugs, wires, starter, alignment, belt, tensioner, head gasket....and that excludes the 1k I did NOT spend on a new catalytic converter and o2 sensors I refused to replace. (I had to re-registered in a county that didn't need emissions). It was in constant need of repair and the tranny finally going out was almost a relief -- I can now just call it quits with this relationship. I'm done. Do not recommend to anybody.
