The best car I have ever had


Nothing except for the front lights went out at 154000 km.

General Comments:

This is the best car I have ever driven.

Not much to look at, people make fun of me constantly, but I love my Taunus.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Taunus is the German (or continental) version of good old Cortina - basically the same, at least the last 2 models - MK IV and MK V.
