Question FORD TAURUS: Looking at an 03, things to watch for?

Looking at purchasing an 03 Ford Taurus, SES black, adjustable pedals, CD player, cloth and Traction Control.
Things to watch for? It's got 13,000 miles, in service date of Mid last year. Wife currently has an 01 Ford Taurus and I have had no problems with it. Very nice car. She just put a lot of miles on it and needs the adjustable pedals as she's pregnat and sits way to damn close to the steering wheel.
Thanks

The only things to really look for.....that the dealership should tell you before buying is they just had a recall on the Taurus/Sable models for faulty seat rails and bad front coils. Other then that its a pretty good car. Click on the links to get more info about the recalls.

Thanks for the links but neither one affects this car. The spring one does affect her 01 thou. It's a pretty sharp looking car

Nice looking car. You got there. I wanted a SHO, but she didn't want one. Her's is a sole grocery getter. I'll snap some pics in the very near future.
