1996 Mercury Sable LX 3.0 from North America
Unless you are looking for a way to spend your money, look for another car!
Rotors had to be overhauled at 11,900 miles (Covered on Warranty).
Power Steering unit failed at 23,000 miles (Covered on Warranty).
Rack & Pinion had to be replaced at 40,860 miles (Cost: $547.00).
Transmission went out and had to be rebuilt at 65,000 miles (Cost:$1,445.91).
Camshaft Position Sensor and attached module had to be replaced at 71,000 (Cost:$348.00)
I would absolutely love this car, if I could keep it out of the shop. I continue to check the Lemon Laws to see if I can get a little recourse from all of the mechanical problems. I am appalled at the list of problems I have had to deal with. I had hope to keep it for another 6 to 7,000 miles, but I am afraid I will not be able to afford the cost.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
