After 11 years of service, Dave finally traded in his beloved 1995 Ford Taurus SHO last week. It was kind of sad, since Dave had the car for so long. We washed it really good before the trade-in. The car looked almost brand new, with only two minor door dings and a small paint scratch on the front bumper.
The dealer was decent to offer us $2,000 for the trade-in. It's not much, but certainly a lot better than the other two offers we got: one dealer offered $1,250, the other (CarMax) offered $1,200.
Hope the car can find a good home. We'll miss you.
FYI: After the dealer fixed some fluid leaks, they put the car on sale for $5,995 the next week.
