    Default FS: $500.00 Car



    I have a 2003 Ford Taurus that I've been using as a daily driver for over a decade. It has 112,000 miles, runs well. The interior is easily a B+ / A, the engine is super clean and has a lot of new parts- alternator, brake booster, water pump and thermostat, serpentine belt, valve cover gaskets (that's why it's so clean) intake manifold gaskets, starter, I dont remember everything. Three tires match and are in good shape, the 4th is OK, I got it from a used tire place on Federal Blvd when I hit a curb and tore the sidewall less than a block away from the used tire store (37th and Federal). It has a donut spare that has maybe 10 miles on it. Recent battery and spark plugs too. It's had front seat covers on it since 2004, I'm guessing they look pretty good. The back seat has never been used.

    I own a small business with a very limited service area and I use this car exclusively for work. It has not gone over 45 mph or farther than 10 miles in over 14 years. I have never been on the highway with it. It is not a POS, it just developed a problem that I don't want to fix. Nothing hard, I'm just not into working on it, I have a Maverick reserved and I've moved on in my mind.

    The driver's front CV shaft is clicking on turns. I've bought a replacement, it's not a hard job, maybe two hours. It still works, just noisy, you can drive it. Sometimes they complain forever without breaking, or it might break today. IDK. It's worth about $2000.00, the scrap yard will give me $600 since it has the original cats and the body is straight. I'll take $500.00 and throw in the replacement shaft, you can flip it in a day or drive it forever. Clean title in hand. Everything else works, the AC is cold and I keep it clean.
