My mom's 2003 Taurus might be coming off the road soon, the place she takes it says its unsafe to drive, needs balljoints, 4 wheel brakesand all fuel and brake lines. it only has around 170,000km on it and she drives like a 77 yr old lady. it is a 3.0 vulcan
they are looking for a replacement vehicle, should know in a week or 2 if it would be available, probably $400 for the motor, I'm going to keep her rims and tires for our 95 taurus wagon if she quits driving it. and I would save some other bits offit too.
she gets it serviced consistently but never oilsprays the car so its suffering from the gravel road calcium chloride summer rot and the salty brine winter rot.
I could probably push the car for 5 more years but hey shes old and wants a newer vehicle. they are looking at cars on Monday.
