"I bought mine used in 2009 from a car rental place. The car has worked out happily..the only problems I had were to replace the alternator, and change the plenum gasket. That"s it! Love the car..dealers keep calling me to buy it back!! Go figure..but I'm keeping it until the wheels fall off( around 150,00+)!!!"

Most reliable car I've ever owned.

"Been in family since new, have owned many cars over the past sixty two years, this has easily been the most reliable with the fewest problems, superior to the Honda Accord also purchased new which it replaced."

"I bought my Taurus used from a fleet sale, with 60,000 miles on it already. I was very leery, but I was sold on the comfort and the very solid feeling it had when I test drove it. It is so much more car than the Camry I was driving before it. I have had no problems at all since buying it. The V6 is very responsive, so quiet I don't even know it's running. It has a lot of room front and back. I find it extremely comfortable to drive. I love getting on the freeway, setting the cruise control and relax into the comfortable powered front seat. The interior is basic yet convenient and functional. Nothing is out of reach. I have the console shifter that gives it a more sporty feel. The interior is black, paint is white with dark tinted windows. Making it very easy to keep clean inside and out. Aside from having to do regular oil changes, I have only had to do one brake job so far to maintain it. I stick to the regular maintenance schedule so I expect to get many more satisfying miles out of this car."

A ver reliable vehicle with no problems

"I love this vehicle. I am moving overseas. This is why I am selling it, otherwise I would keep it. Body is white color with a couple very minor dings, excellent interior, everything works perfect, tires are in excellent condition. This vehicle is almost like new."

"I bought this car in 2010 for $3800.- check engine light was on. Needed 4 oxygen sensors and other $$$ emissions work. Car misses for 10 seconds every morning when it's cold, then smooths out but puts 301 code up and check engine light goes on every time. Car only gets 15 MPG around town but I don't use overdrive so it's like driving in 3rd gear. Gets 25 MPG on the highway in overdrive. I have a scanner and can shut off the light to pass PA inspection. Had to replace rear struts and power steering pump last year. - rack and pinion started leaking but I stopped it with sealer. Car has great power and it's a joy to drive. No transmission problems.I will keep it until it's absolutely dead."
