i went to ford yesterday and the guy talked me into driving an 03 ses leftover with the duratec. all i can say is wow i didnt know they were as quick as they are. all my previous statements have been retracted. I go back tommorow to try and work something out on it because the price is still 17,400 it was originally 23,400.

Whats the mileage like on that 03? Options??

I paid 14500, which seems to be the norm in the northeast for a taurus thats loaded with about 20k on it.

Glad you liked it.

he was kinda that way twards me too, Brad. A long time ago....I don't even remember what it was about so I guess it wasn't important. He did say all his previous statments were retracted, though.

They really will want to be getting rid of that car. Try to talk them down as much as you can. I bet you could get a better deal. It sounds nice though. Gen 4's are very nice.


The interior sounds like that on my gen 4.

If its spaces within a day, its called being bi-polar. If its weeks at a time....manic depressive.

manic depressive and bipolar are the same thing. They changed the name to bipolar recently, because it's a more accurate name for the disease.

I looked at an 03 recently that had an 04 front end to it. I actually suprised the salesman when I asked why it was labeled an 03 when it had an 04 front end. It was a SEL at a dealer. I must admit that I am beginning to really like the G4's.

Good luck, I've very happy with my Gen4, I payed 10K for mine with 31K miles on it. Definatly a change going from a Crown Vic to a Taurus, but not a whole lot, it's still very roomy, and has the 24V engine, so it's good on the power.

Damn, thats alot.. I am guessing it is new.. If not, look around some more I paid 11k for my 2002
Also remember.tauruses have sweet 0% financing so if you do get a new one..you can take advantge of that...


if you get a used on, you will have interest...maybe around 6%

i priced my brand new 03 w/ 0% financing to a 02 w/ the giong rate..and it was almost exact monthly payments because the 02s were like 12-14 grand versus 22k for a new 03 the interest equalled it out...and i get a longer warranty, and i konw what was done to my car since it was new

just somet hings to think about

I read the whole huge arguement that was started that one time and knew someone would have a comment related to it. I just remember the whole debate made some people <_< at Taurus bashers. Sorry if i ruffled any feathers.

Alright boys, everyone "simma down naw" (quote from SNL skit with Cheri O'Teri and Garth Brooks)


I bought my 2002 SEL in Nov. of 2002. They were asking $28.5, after rebates ($5K from Ford) and about 4 hours of "haggling" got it for $18.5 with .3 miles on it. You will love it, you should try to make a deal on the new 2003.

Man! reading this makes me wish that I looked at the engines of the Taurus' before I bought one.. I know I looked at 2 or 3 of the engines, and I could of SWORE they all looked idenical (Vulcan) But one of those cars was a Sable.. And I dont know if a Sable can come with a Vulcan now adays..


Another Question.. Do all Sables have Duratecs?

I have seen plenty of gen IV Sables with no dohc badges running around here, probably around 1 in 4 has a vulcan around here but I don't know for certain, all GS's that I have seen are vulcans. Unless it was a rare one that may have had a tec, do they still put the tec in to the Sable GS any more?
