Bye Bye 2001 Ford Taurus

Well I sold the Taurus today. 198,000 miles on her.

Sold her for $2,200 which I don't think it's too bad at all.

Put her on Craigslist and told her within a half an hour.

Did you fix it or did the new owner know of the problems with it? Seems like you got a good buck for a car with those issues.

I informed the buyer. even when we were test driving the oil light came on at ide. He didn't seem at all concerned about it. I told him honestly that I do not not the exact issue what it may be and do not feel like investigating it. He seemed really happy with the car, I mean aesthetically it was one of the cleanest Tauruses out there. It cleaned up real nice. It's time for something with lower miles and something that I can get in and drive and not have to work on every weekend or have something new pop up to fix every other day. She was a work horse of a car ill give her that and i can't judge her for not being reliable as I bought her with 150,000.
