2 cars. 1 seized engine and 1 blown transmission
4 months ago, my car was totaled when hit by a Bud Light truck. Wasn\'t
worht much, $2000. I am a single working mom and I needed a car for my
job fast and cheap. I bought a 94 Ford Escort wagon with 71000 miles for
$1500. It was fabulous for 59 days. Then the engine seized. It seems the
oil pump had stopped working along with temperature gauge and anything
else that would have told me that something was wrong. The dealer I
purchased it from has not returned my calls. By scraping and burrowing I
found another car, a 2000 Ford Taurus 63000 miles $1850. After driving it
for 6 carefree days the transmission blew. This dealer said it must be
something I did and would not give me my money back. Can I take these 2
lemons and put them together to make some kind of Lemonade? Which
one would be more worth fixing? what is the least expensive way to make
either of them work? Help!
Focus on the 2000 Taurus with 63,000 miles purchase or have someone that's capable locate a low mileage transmission from a salvage yard $300-$400 replace it... Scrap the '94 Escort use the money for labor on the 2000 Taurus Or spend $50,000-60,000+ (for a good one)! on a new pickup truck come on help the U.S. economy.
