My car is in great mechanical shape.

2003 Ford Taurus LX Standard

My ford Taurus has been very reliable. It is 16 years old and in the 5 years I have owned it I may have spent 600.00 in repairs. Please keep in mind I didn't have to spend anything until recently and at this time it has over 180000 miles on it. My car is from mi. So it has quite a bit of rust. I will have to replace it due to the rust before I will for mechanical reasons.

My car and what it means to my life.

2003 Ford Taurus LX Standard

Very comfortable. Needs better gas mileage, which might be due to the miles on the car. It is dark red in color which is nice. Stereo system is very good for that car which is very quiet to the road noise. It has basically been very reliable so far with some small problems that really are not due to the car itself but me.

My Ford Taurus and Why You Should Get One

2003 Ford Taurus LX Standard

My right turn signal is about to go out, and the brakes are questionable. Other than that, it is in pretty good shape. It drives nice, air conditioning works well, smoke-free, and pet friendly home. I have had the vehicle since 2015, and it is a very nice car. I recommend this for any teen or family.
