    2005 ford Taurus with original parts.

    2005 Ford Taurus SEL

    My car is a 2005 ford Taurus se. It is a champagne grey. It has a comfortable interior with a large trunk. It is smooth riding for good travel. It has good gas mileage whether it is in town or on the highway. It has struts all around adding a cushioned ride. It has power brakes and power windows. It has power locks on the doors. And most of all with the maintenance that normally takes place, it has the original parts.

    Great size for a family and very fuel efficient.

    2005 Ford Taurus SEL

    It's a good dependable car and currently has over 270,000 miles in mileage and is still going. It does need some repairs to get it up where it should be but it still does a good job taking us everywhere. We've had it over 5 years and are very impressed with its lasting.

    2005 Ford Taurus SEL

    I really love my car. It drives very smoothly, it runs very quietly, it is very good as far as has mileage goes. I have only owned it for about 6 months now and wouldn't trade it for anything. I bought it used but it runs like a new car. It does not use much oil either.
