The secondary visor got dropped with the 12/02 change on 03 model year cars.
You'll find two styles of visors in early and late 04s.
Chrome strip on the door got deleted part way through 04 model year on SEL bulls too.
If you are searching for a new car, considering you're in PA...have the car inspected for rot.
They are nice cars, but not when your rockers start rotting out, causing structural failure of the car...or the wheel well arches are rotting away. The wheel well arches are less important to safety/structural regidity of the car, but still worth checking. Brake line condition too, right where the plastic retainers hold the metal lines under the driver door on the rocker is a common point for the brake lines to rust out.
If I was out shopping for a Taurus right now and wanted the 00-03 early Gen 4 style, I would try to find a later built 2002 to an early 2003. Those typically had the options and features without the deletes (ie Lighted cruise control).
an SES or SEL model would be nice. Vulcans, I would check the condition of the coolant. If they didn't do coolant changes/flushes, that is not great for the car. DOHC
, nothing really comes to mind.
Maintenance records showing trans servicing would be real nice if the mileage is kinda up there.
Thought about finding a station wagon?
