My almost new 2011 Ford Taurus
I had sold one of my new vehicles and had decided that I only needed one new one and an older vehicle for a "back up" or in the rare occasion that the wife and I would be going separate directions. (we are senior citizens) I was thinking I only needed something that would take me a few miles and was looking through ads and saw one at a local Ford dealer and then I did a double take on the mileage on this vehicle. So, I go down there intending to just take a look and go on as it was higher priced than I wanted to pay. The internet person I had contacted came out and said she would get me a salesman and I told her I just wanted to take a look and I didn't have time for the "sales speech" so she gets him. I look at him and he looks at me and it was a person I used to know pretty well at another non-Ford dealership. I had not seen him for at least 6 years. I would have left then if it had been anybody but him. Okay, to shorten this story, I looked at this 2011 Ford Taurus and the wife drove it and then I drove it and then we bought it. Now, back to the mileage on this 2011 Ford Taurus--10,500 miles--one owner-car-fax report. Just a couple of very small "scuffs" on the entire body. Leather-dual heated power seats, standard V-6 engine , 8 speed trans. The seats are really comfortable--much better than my 2019 SUV (not a Ford) and it drives like a vehicle with now 11,100 miles. Oh, yeah, going to be driving this more than I thought for my back-up vehicle. Oh, they had put new Michelin tires on it--haven't checked which series but it drives fantastic and not any noticeable problems yet. IF you want to know what I paid, they were asking $13000 and I talked them down to 12 Grand plus my taxes and there fee which made it 12,750 dollars OTD.(purchased 4-11-2019.) I am really happy with this Ford so far. Yes, I have owned a few other fords in my life time. Picture is not great--took a few in case we had a hail storm for insurance to prove it was in great condition when I purchased it.
