1999 Mercury Sable GS 3.0L V6 Duratec engine from North America
A very durable car
My alternator went bad at 88,500 miles. I also had to replace my battery at this time.
This car saved my life. The seatbelt held me in one place.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1999 Mercury Sable from North America
Job security for your local garage!
Transmission blew out at 70,000.
Car makes constant chugging noise 90,000.
Speedometer stopped working at 120,000.
Sometimes passenger side front seat window won't go down at times.
Windshield wipers sometimes turn on when you don't expect it.
The car is like a Milk Dud: Sweet on the outside, bad under the inside..
I have to say a prayer that I can make it to work in the morning.
I have heard old locomotives that sound better than this.
It is a good car for someone who has a lot of money to pour into it for repairs.

Same here, windshield wipers turned on by themselves at times and the dealer could not repair the problem. Shocking when it would happen.
Lots of problem with the steering box and tie rods and ball joints. Luckily I had the extended warranty, still many times to the dealer for this front end problem.
The dealer broke my antennae when courtesy washing our car and put it back half ass, I caught the sneaky attendant doing this, yet the manager made me pay for a new one saying that it had rusted out.
Then water started to come into the passenger area and got the carpet soaked, and so before it would start to smell bad, I looked to sell it. But what I got was ridiculous for a six year old car. Even the Ford dealership I bought it from offered me a fraction of it's perceived value.
It's gone now and I am a Toyota owner. This car ended my 30+ year Ford streak of cars. So long Ford hope you make it.
