High Mileage Taurus

I wanted to let you know that my Taurus has over 400,000 miles on it and still runs like a charm. The only major item I have had to replace is the transmission. The body only has a small rust spot. Everyone ask me when I plan on replacing my Taurus and getting something new but why replace something that is still running. This was the first Ford that I had ever bought and you can bet that when the car decides that it has had enough I will be at the nearest Ford Dealer looking for another one. So, thank you Ford for making an excellent product.

Dina I And I was impressed that my 2003 Windstar has 160,000 miles on it! That doesn't put a dent in some of these mileage figures.

R Jones My Taurus now has 229,000 miles, mostly highway. Have done fair share of repairs. Valve replacement at 174,000, ac compressor and other repairs. Just did fuel pump and ac lines and accumulator. It has original transmission and engine(did do the valve job). NOw that it has so many miles I'm starting to get nervous and hoping no more repairs for awhile. I like the car not as well as my 2002 with 125,000 and 2006 with 50,000 but I still like the car nonetheless. I'm driving it as long as I can so then I'll have my 2002 which I like better with fewer miles. My husband has a 2002 focus, has done almost no repairs despite my mechanic warning that they weren't the best cars. So, as u can see I love Ford.

R Jones Hi, I have a 2001 Taurus with almost 221,000 miles on it. I love the car but can't say I haven't done my share of repairs. It has original transmission, valve job done at 174,000 miles, AC compressor replaced, the rest are smaller repairs but nonethless costly. Mostly my fault. I let it idle alot when stopped. All highway miles. I've maintained it with oil changes and flushes, etc. Overall, I like the car, could have done with fewer repairs but it is driven alot. About 40 to 45k a year. My husband has been after me to get rid of it since it had 100k and a buy a VW. But I like the car and I will drive another Ford.

Mike sz Mine is a 2004 Taurus and it has 243,000 miles on it already! Everyone tell me that car is not going to last long, but i beg to differ. It has all highway miles and was so well maintained that it has a long way to go before it says "no more."
