2008 Mercury Sable Premier 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
When we first bought the Sable (used July 09) we really loved it overall, big comfortable, good engine, power. But over the last year we have had in the shop 4 times for non-mechanical/non- engine failures, such as the truck hydraulics broke and it almost fell on my wife's head. Left steering linkage went bad and you could barely turn the car left while driving. The heated seat (driver's side) went out. Now currently some kind of air flow actuator motor (what directs the air flow from a/c) went bad. Not to mention the door trim molding (black rubber seal) has came loose twice and the 3 preset button of the radio is severly sticking. These are all annoying pesky things going wrong-not happy all
Interior build quality/overall non- mechanical build quality. Ford can do better than this - I would expect such things from Kia but bad truck latches/ bad heated seats, cmon guys. Germans/Japanese leave you behind in this category.
