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.

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.
