FS: Ford Taurus for $3600

Ford Taurus LX 4-door Sedan Asking for $3600 Suggested retail price: $5600 I bought the car 1.5 years ago from Worden Martin. Selling it cheap now because I'm graduating in May and will be leaving the states. Very well-
maintained. No serious problems except for slight body scratches. Interior is flawless. Had a transmission problem because I forgot to add transmission fluid but I changed the entire transmission tank already.

So it is a 2002 model year? How about the rest of the information please.
For $5600 it has to be a 2002 with 60K miles on it or so (book retail value). Any older and it is worth much less.

If you can buy one in good condition for $3,600 buy it even if you just want to trade it.
The is no listing for an LX but NADA lists a 2002 Taurus SEL with average mileage of 30K as follows;
Average trade Average Retail
$10,000            $12,200 (60K miles deduct $1,500)

NADA is full of it. The 25K, 2004 LX Taurus are all over dealers lots as factory program cars for $11,000 RETAIL advertised price. The 35K, 2003 program LX's are advertised for $8,000. All with warranty.
Who in their right mind is going to believe NADA retail price on a 2002 retail of $12,200?

You are free to believe what you wish, but NADA price lists are derived for the actual selling prices at new car dealerships over the past month. $25,000 will buy you a new Crown Vic LX. Perhaps what you are seeing are used rental cars. Specially equipped models that were sold new to rental car companies for $14,000. Ford has not sold an LX model to retail buyers for several years. Many dealers erroneously refer to ALL the cars they buy a auction as 'program' cars even those that were sold to customers. In reality no used cars, retail or lease, are sold as a program vehicles A true PGV. is one that was only ever owned by Ford, and a window label stating that fact is attached. If there is not a label that says 'The only owner of this vehicle was Ford Motor Company,' it is not a program car, merely a used car that was at some point sold by Ford to some buyer.
