1990 Mercury Sable GS Sedan 3.0 Liter 6 Cylinder from North America
A comfortable and reliable car
All passenger power window switches went bad (including the 3 on the driver's main override).
The water pump seized (also needed new pump belt).
After running the car with the air conditioning on, sometimes it will not start back up. You have to rev the engine in neutral for about 2-3 minutes.
Needed a new exhaust pipe O-ring. The car became extremely noisy when this became loose.
There is some bothersome shaking when the car reaches speeds between 55 and 60 MPH, but other than that it drives well.
Remote gas tank latch became inoperative (I belive it was badly rusted on the inside).
Minor rusting on the body (hood, trunk, front doors).
The previous owners left the car completely dry of oil and it still operated perfectly for about 500-1000 miles!
Very clean-looking vehicle, has a nice long-lasting shine to it.
Very spacious, my sedan seats up to six people (3 front - 3 back) with the arm rests up.
Reliable car - I drive it every day.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
