"Our vehicle is a wagon and was bought used. It now has about 115,000 miles on it. We used it for all sorts of family vacations and random trips and daily trips to the office. It has had an odd shake to the front end and we have taken it in many times for repair. When it reaches above 60mph it sometimes shakes the stering wheel. Its not a huge deal but it is annoying on long trips when it happens. also one time the power stering went out. My daughter drove it for a while and it got rear-ended but still works well. Overall this has been a good car with a few minor problems"
"I owned a used 1997 Taurus (starting with 18,000 in 1998) till I put over 213,000 miles on it. Only had to fix the transmission twice and engine once. All other repairs were just routine maintenance. I believe it could still go another 100,000, but my husband thought it was time to put it to rest and we purchased a 2003 with 89,000. It was not only a trade up in years, but the improvement in performance and interior styling is wonderful."
