Not sure how I feel about my Ford Taurus right now. It's a 2006 and this may just be regular things that go bad but 3 weeks ago it had to have the a/c compressor replaced, the idle sensor thing-a-ma-bob and needed a new battery. Thank God my brother could do the work for me, it cost me $300 for parts. Today I found out it needs a new alternator, another $200. It get horrible gas mileage. I bought it because I had loved my 1986 Ford Tempo and thought the Taurus would be as wonderful.
