Still going strong
I bought my 2004 Ford Taurus used in 2007. It had only 11,000 miles on it. Sixteen years later with 177,000+ miles on it is still going well. I have a very small rust area between the drivers and passenger door lower panel. Hardly noticeable. I get 23 mpg in everyday driving. Sure over the years I’ve had some repairs .... but other than normal maintenance, (oil changes, tires, brakes, batteries, tuneup), only an air conditioner replaced, alternator, idle motor, brake line, soon a power steering pump but that’s about it I am as happy as could be with my Ford Taurus. I only paid $11,000 for it back in 2007. Really getting my monies worth! I plan on keeping it until 200,000 miles! (Maybe longer). It still looks decent. Power drivers seat, 6-cd changer .... what could a man ask for? I never even got that many miles out of my ex-wife. ?
