1996 Mercury Sable LS 3.0 from North America
Some problems, but an overall good car
Radiator cracked at 70,000 miles. Had new radiator installed instead of repairing old one, because of high labor cost involved in reaching the radiator in the car (whole engine has to basically be removed to access radiator.)
Intermittent malfunction of overhead light; will sometimes stay on as if a door is open, when it is not.
Failed transmission at 90,000 miles. $2,200.00 to replace (including labor.)
Despite the problems, this has been a good car. Very comfortable ride, roomy trunk, good leg room in both front and back seats are all pluses. Insurance costs are lower because of this car's excellent safety rating. With the exception of the failed transmission, I have been very happy with this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
