Overheating issue in town but not on Highway on 1997 Ford Taurus

Someone is wanting to trade me my 4x4 for thier Taurus... They say it overheats in town but not on highway. I would like to know if this is something that may end up costing us a lot to fix... I had a Taurus wagon that did the same thing...

I would not go near this car. if the car over heats in town, it could be so many things, like a bad cooling fan, bad radiator etc. It may have already over heated to the point where the head gaskets are strained. Head gaskets on this motor are EXPENSIVE!

Good Luck!
