the power window alone is about 45-55 dollars, if you buy the window regulator with the motor ( I suggest to get this ) it costs about 110 dollars.
the installation is very straight forward if you are mechanical incline

Sounds reasonable to me.... If fuel injected, you can expect reasonable longevity from the engine.

Testimonial: "a fair response, thankyou"
SOURCE: Recently looked at a 1997
Personally, if all feels like it's working as it should, I wouldn't hesitate if the price is right. Have transmission inspected and serviced soon if concerned and at regular intervals to give it the best chance at performing good for a long time. With that said, let me ask this. Did you research any other vehicles similar to the Taurus, but manufactured by other makers? Very few, if any, don't have some kind of known weakness that will cost money later on, whether it be transmission, or engine related. It's just a fact of life with all these lightweight materials and electronics they use for building vehicles now. Go to the library and look for a book called " Lemon-Aid" by Phil Edmonston, or stop at a book store and buy one. Very good reference on vehicles and what problems have been reported etc as well as other related info. You'll find problems with everything, but some models have less, or less expensive repairs down the road, but usually cost more to buy up front. If your really concerned that much, get a quote from dealer or shop you trust on how much for a transmission service and inspection prior to buying it.
