1990 Mercury Sable GS 3.0 V6 from North America
Value and reliability, all rolled into one!
A/C Clutch seized.
Voltage Regulator went bad.
Brake light switch went bad.
Grille bar lights burned out.
Radio volume is intermittent high/low.
Wiper delay switch needed replaced.
Headlight burned out.
Plugs/wires were bad.
This has been an all-around great car for me. I commute 60 miles a day and she fires right up and purrs like a kitten.
Aside from the A/C clutch going south, I've had no major problems with the vehicle. I've yet to replace the A/C compressor, as it's a very expensive procedure due to the retrofit for the new coolant.
The other things that have gone wrong have been very minor and I've been able to perform the repairs myself. The preventive maintenance is inexpensive and easy to do on your own and parts can be had for a very resonable price.
Overall, the Sable has been a great car for the money I spent and continues to churn out the miles for me on a regular basis.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
