2001 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
The automatic transmission failed after
25,500. The dealership has refused to
repair the transmission the car was
abused. The car was damaged by putting
the car in neutral and dropping it into
gear and spinning the tires causing
bald spots. I am a 48 year old woman
who has never driven hazardously. I've
always kept my cars for approximately 5
years and trade them in when the milage
gets to around 100K and have never
experienced any major repairs
warrentied or otherwise. This is the
third Ford/Mercury I have owned. I
intend to contact the Regional
The exterior design is futureistic.
The car handles much better than SUV's
and Mini vans and gets better gas
Interior is rather old fashioned. I
preferred the interior of my 1996 Ford
Taurus LX wagon.
