I'm Baaaaaaack!

Post by Titanium X » Mon Jul 24, 2017 9:53 pm

It's been five years since our Titanium Green Taurus X SEL was totaled by another driver. We tried many times to find another Taurus X, but eventually settled on a 2012 Ford Flex. We loved the Flex so much thet we bought another one (a 2014) when the first one began to pile up the miles from our trips between NJ and FL. But we never gave up trying to find a T-Rex for my wife. She loved that car. Finally after years of near misses, we just purchased a 2008 Taurus X Limited with only 39,000 miles on it. It will replace my wife's 2014 Ford Fusion when she turns it in in October. We were in Florida when this one popped up in PA on Cars.com. I emailed the dealer and we worked the details out via emails and phone calls. On our drive back from Florida to Jersey, we took a detour to PA and picked it up. 2008 Limited, AWD, Nav, 18" chrome wheels, 2nd row heated buckets with console, adjustable pedals, moonroof, and power lift gate. Despite the low miles, it is a nine year old vehicle, so I added an extended warranty. Its a one-owner car, originally sold and serviced by the dealer I bought it from. Paid more than I expected, but its in fantastic condition. We couldn't be happier.

Yes, I have been on the Flex forum for years. My screen name is FlexR4Ti, a reference to my Merkur hobby.

$13,600 including an extended warranty for an additional 3yr/36k. Pretty steep for a 9 year old car, but its a cream puff. Came with brand new Michelin tires, too. I believe it is the lowest mileage Limited in the country, based on all that were for sale at the time.
