The Ford Taurus is a reliable car that will get you to point A to point B

My car is overall a decent driving car. I bought the car used, and it only had one prior owner. The car performs pretty well. Only problems I have had are the normal things that you will experience with a car like brakes, needing new parts etc. However, I will mentions i have Had some oil leaks and the air conditioner doesn't work due to the pulley going out.The car performs well, and it's a very powerful car speed wise so you will have to be mindful of that. Also, the car has great gas mileage. If you are not a frequent driver and commute to work and home, you can go a week on a full tank. As far as features there is not bells and whistles. It has a basic radio, no aux cord or sub port, power windows, only seat that is powered is the driver's seat, and sunroof. Overall, it's a decent car that gets the job done..

Dependable and great gas mileage.

My car's name is Debbie. The only reason I have listed her as my primary vehicle is because my primary vehicle is actually a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville, but Pontiac was not in the list of makes for vehicles. Right now, Debbie is not my primary vehicle, although I'd like her to be because she gets good gas mileage. Debbie was my primary vehicle until her transmission started having problems and then I had to get another car so that I could get back and forth to school which is about 25 miles away. I really like Debbie, except the problem with the transmission and she has really bad shocks, but overall she's very dependable. This semester I plan to get her transmission repaired so that I don't have to pay so much in gas every week.

An interesting thing about my car is the lights are not automatic.

My 2002 Ford Taurus se is a pretty stable car. Its small and comfortable but personally I hate it. I do not like the shape of the car its just extremely different and randomly curvy in unnecessary areas. I bought my car from a previous owner and I have had it for over a year but for that its been extremely reliable I do not really change the oil at least I haven't and it continues to run for me with no problems with the engine or anything at all. They are cheap cars normally only worth a few hundred.
