I bought my Taurus SEL brand new and it's been so good to me over the years - very reliable and very comfortable. It's made many, many, many road trips...very good on gas. Money-wise, other than regular maintenance (oil changes, tire rotation, etc.), I honestly can't complain. If I could, I would keep this car forever. In the last two years I've noticed the rust which I suppose is to be expected. I hope when I need to replace this car I will be lucky enough to find one just as reliable.
