I bought my 93 mercury sable used in 06' with 92,000 miles. I thought it had at least 100,000 more good miles on it since I have a 98 Buick Century with 350,000 miles on the original engine. Soon after buying the brake/shift lock jammed up on me and had to be replaced. After that, air conditioning unit, fuel pump, rear door lock wont work, alternator, check engine light started staying on, dash light bulbs burnt out, key ignition switch replaced. In the first 3 months of 2009 alone I have: replaced motor mounts, tie rods, window went out of track, and now a part in front of transmission which will run about $600. Stay away from this year Sable unless someone give you the car for free!!!!

Car was owned by a little old lady. Have had nothing but ongoing problems since day one. Brakes failed three times, check battery light on constantly and radiator started to leak within two months of purchase. Have brought it back numerous times to dealer/mechanic but I refuse to put any more of my hard earned money into this horrendous pile. Can't wait to dump it. Nothing but a horror show.

Bought this car from my mechanic after
1 owned. It had some minor accident
before. Obviously the guy did
some cleanup on it. In 4 months the
radiator started to leak -- had to
replace it. I use it a lot for driving
into school (approx 40 mi/day), so I
got around 113K now.The car performed
excellent. Had no problems with AC.
Indeed the flueds leak: replaced
engine gasket, transmission gasket,
and recently steering gear assly.
Recently CV-joints started to clank on
turns. A little bit slow to accelerate
(old monny's car), but very smooth and
comfortable. Roomy inside and in the
trunk. Not a gas saver. But for its
age performs decently.
