Read the fine print. There probably demos or program cars.
I saw a few local promos around here a few months back and
went to the dealer. The lowest price ones were NOT zero mile
cars. That does not mean there not a good deal.
Do your homework. Of course, that price probably includes
every bogus rebate on the books if it is new.
I would not buy a 500 until they have made them for a few years.
Good advice. I notice the good prices in the newspaper, then I see the
recent college grad discount, the dealer loyalty discount, the GM return
costumer discount, and sometimes the trade in in figuring the price.
When I bought my Ford Contour, the dealer offered me one with about 4k on
the odometer. The dealer said that it was used by the owner's wife. I
figured I was getting a car that should have any problems worked out, was at
less than invoice (they said it was at the price they really paid for it,
like $1000 less than invoice, and so I was saving like 10% of the price.)
So, if the car goes 100,000 mi, I am getting 4% fewer miles, so that is a
good deal. Plus, if the car is in a crash or something, it won't really
matter. I did get the original title and a recent college grad discount,
I am not sure if I should have negotiated for a lower price, but I am happy
with the car (and only 110,000 mi on it so far).

They are cheap because they haven't been selling very well. Tauruses
are boring cars and, in my humble opinion, not very attractive.
Reliability is average or better.
The competing Pontiac Grand Prix and Buick Regal are similar cars but
much better looking (also more expensive).
Marketing on the Internet without spamming:
At that $1,700 price it can NOT be unused. The lowest priced,
brand new nicely equipped V6 never driven, 2004 Taurus is
$16,000. That is a base model including rebates. Less any
dealer discount, which will not be more than $1,000. However for
around $3,000 more one can get a top of the line SES model, fully
loaded with the stronger engine.. That is at LEAST $10,000 less
than the drive home price of a similarly equipped fully loaded
2004 V6 Accord or Camry. The Taurus is an excellent vehicle for
the money, we have seen thousands of them run up to 300k miles
over the years in our fleet service business. That is one reason
corporate fleets buy so many of them
