After the transmission gave out at just
100,000 miles and the head gasket blew
for the THIRD TIME, I'm finished. I
can't even get anybody to buy this
thing, and I wouldn't sell it to them
anyway. The best use for this thing is
to let it sit in the barn for the dogs
to sleep in.
3.8 L engine was very nice to drive.
I place for more than one cup. A
drivetrain that works for more than
100,000 miles. I hear they made
some "improvements" in later years, but
I'm not giving them another chance.
Bought new, with less than 80k miles
after 10 years, the car is heavy but
still easy to maneuver. It is
comfortable on long trips, and been
very reliable until transmission
problems at 75k miles. Rest of car
still works fine, but if you need a
transmission, suggest a reliable
company, but not the dealership, which
is more expensive
Solid feel, manueverable, split bench
seat, easy to adjust power driver's
seat, good heating and cooling.
Several original defects required
dealer to fix on trim, lights; mileage
of 22 around town, 27 on road could be
a little better.
Never buy a Ford or a mercury Sable,
only if its the SHO model Ford Taurus.
I bought my mercury sable about 3 years
ago with 40,000 miles on it. It ran
perfectly at first, than 10,000 miles
later the transmissions went out on it.
So now i bought a 1995 Ford Taurus
SHO,I really enjoy it because the motor
is made by Yamaha and the tranny is
too. Believe me, if u want a headache
and alot of stress than buy a Mercury
I've had this car for 100,000 miles
through out my high school and
college days. It was towed 3 times,
went through 4 starters, 2 fuel
pumps, and left me stranded twice. I
wouldn't buy this vehicle if it has over
100,000 miles. Otherwise, it's a
good car. The power is great, good
pickup, and room on the inside is
Ford fixed it not under warranty, but
just for a manufacturing problem with
structure. Power is great.
Better reliability. Has too many
manufacturing defects; these need to
be fixed by company.
