The only female friendly car dealer within 29 miles of me has a 2005 Ford Taurus listed for $10999. My question (knowing practically nothing about cars) is --is this a dependable car?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Linda, No matter what car you decide to purchase, I highly recommend you take it to an independent ASE certified mechanic for a used car inspection service. You want to know if it needs any repairs to make it safe, and what maintenance service is due or going to be due soon. You don't want any surprises once you purchase a used car. Find an ASE certified technician by going here: http://www.ase.com/bluesealsearch/locator.php Best of Luck!
