Remember I told you we were going to see about either a Isuzu Rodeo or a Dodge Durango? Well, we couldn't get financing for the Rodeo, so we got the Durango.
Ain't it pretty?? (the pic is from the web, but just like ours) Yeah, I think so too....loved it! Unfortunately, we ended up taking it back the very next day after we got it. The "check gauges" light kept coming on, and oil pressure was dropping waaay down. It didn't do this when we test drove it. So MrKB took it back to see if they could get it fixed (it had a warranty, fortunately) and after they replaced some parts, it was still doing the same thing. Seems like it may possibly be the oil pump....but the owner said he'd hate to find out that didn't fix it either, so offered us our choice of other vehicles on the lot. Some that weren't even quite ready to be sold yet.
This is what we ended up with:
A 2001 Ford Taurus. Right around 73,000 miles on it, which is A LOT less than the Durango had. It's not what I was wanting, and I never thought I'd actually own a Ford, but it's pretty nice. Just the right size, power everything, and a 6-disc cd player. It's one of the cars that wasn't quite ready to be sold, so it needs to be detailed inside, but it's not totally trashed or anything. Just needs a bit of cleaning up. I can already tell it's going to get a hell of a lot better gas mileage than our van! That's a definite plus.
Any of y'all ever had one? What did you think of it? Did you have any probs with it at all? Let me know...I'm still not completely sure what I think of this car, but I'll probably end up loving it, just will take some getting used to! One things for sure, it's the "newest" car I've ever had! :)
