Our 1993 Ford Taurus now has 135,000 miles on it. It's been a real good car but we're thinking maybe it's time to let her go. Rear struts need to be replaced, needs a muffler, and she's using about a quart of oil every 1,500 miles. Got our eye on a 2005 Toyota Echo 2D coupe automatic with 7,000 miles on it. The dealer wants $12,800 for it but I think I can shame him into $12,000 out-the-door. What do you all think? Put a few bucks into the old Taurus or sell her and buy the Toyota?
