I am looking to buy a new (well, new to me) used car. I am looking for
something cheap and reliable. By cheap I mean something that is cheap
to maintain; parts that are not expensive and the availability of lots
of mechanics that know and can work on it (unlike lux imports - I know).
So I am looking at a recent-model Taurus and looking to drop anywhere
between $4 to $10k. I can either go for a low-mileage '01 or '02 in
the top of my range, or get a higher-mileage '00 or '01 which would be
on the lower end.
Am I correct in that the '02 model is the first year of the redesign?
Any problems with them?
What should I look for? I don't plan on keeping the car for more than a
couple of years; keeping that in mind, what advice would you give me?
I'm looking at the SES models simply because ABS is a must (why isn't
I must say that I am not a fan of American cars and am not at all
thrilled by the design of the Taurus, but I am a fan of keeping money in
my pocket and, if the car turns out to be reliable, maybe I'll look at
American cars in a new light.
