The vehicle itself is affordable, does not cost much to fill up the tank.

2004 Ford Taurus LX

My vehicle is comfortable and compact, but has some slight issues involving the brakes and overheating at times. The exterior has a small dent on my driver's side door, but there is hardly any rust which is nice! The interior is spacious and fits up to 5 people maximum. There are two cup holders in the back as well as in the front for everyone's convenience. I am saddened that my CD player no longer works. It is located between the drivers and front passengers seat within the armrest. I'm not sure what made it break, but I do need to get a replacement as soon as possible. Other than that, the radio works completely fine and I enjoy listening to it during my morning commute.

It is an okay vehicle for family travels.

2004 Ford Taurus LX

My vehicle is a 2004 Ford Taurus SUV. It sits seven people comfortably with each seat having its own seat belt. It has full cab lighting throughout the inside. It has powered windows that go all the way down. There is front and back air conditioning and heat. It has a CD player that holds up to six CDs. Automatic transmission with six gears. Automatic running lights. Four doors; five if you count the rear door. Black paint trimmed in silver/grey. Size 17 tires.

Ford Taurus, 2004 metallic green, good for light driving

2004 Ford Taurus LX

It's an older Ford Taurus, it's had some cosmetic damage, like scratches, since it was bought. It isn't running very well anymore... I imagine it has some suspension issues, the power windows and so forth are wearing down, possible transmission issues, and I know that the alignment is off. It's a bigger size sedan, and it's a very comfortable drive. It's just old and tired.

Dependable transportation.

2004 Ford Taurus LX

Dependable transportation, low maintenance and overall low cost driving. Gas mileage fluctuates between 18 mpg - 22. The body has very little body rust although have not inspected underneath. Given to us as a gift from reliable owner. Heater does not really put out much heat until high speed on major highways.

This cat is 15 years old and runs very well

2004 Ford Taurus LX

My vehicle is 15 years old and has 130 thousand miles. It runs very well. It drives well in the snow and has an excellent heating ac systems. It has new tires and electric windows I purchased the car in,2017. I do a lot of driving and even though it is 15 years old it still runs well.

Good reliable first car for student.

2004 Ford Taurus LX

I bought my car with very low mileage and it has been very reliable. I have had it for five years now and have only had it break down once and it was an easy fix. I am a college student and drive to and from home a lot, so this is a good car for someone who needs to drive a lot.

Great car. Would buy again. Very reliable and durable.

2004 Ford Taurus LX

Reliable car. Typical repairs for a 15 year old car. I took it through the mountains of West Virginia and it handles itself very well. If it's taken care of it will last you a long time. Very durable body. Has basic things like CD player and tape deck. Air and heat, too.
