I was scammed.

This car had a lot of things that was wrong with it. I tried to get an inspection, and the mechanic told me it was too far damage.

Reliable but didn?t have that wow factor.

See above. Car was lackluster. Just needs a bit more style. Pick up was good and vehicle was solid. Just seemed like a retirement vehicle.

My 1998 Taurus SE Comfort V6 was passed on to me while I was in college, and at that point it was already 16 years old. My grandfather had only used it as a grocery cart so it had less than 60,000 miles. I'm now at 100,000 and have to let the car go. Why? The bottom is rusting out so bad (I'm from Minnesota) that it has been deemed a ticking time bomb by two service shops. You can see the floor where my feet are. Nonetheless this car is still toughing it out over the most vicious potholes you can imagine. That said, my parents have helped me out a lot with maintenance, particularly with the battery and brakes. They are very weak, i.e. I have to floor it hard every time to come to a full stop, and they once completely went out on my after coming off an exit and I had to use my emergency brake to pull over safely. There were other fixes with the radiator, and the heating and AC had long since stopped working. But I still enjoyed driving it. Very comfortable, very aesthetically pleasing, easy to park given its length, roomy, great design.
