Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable


Topic starter

Bought a 2000 Mercury Sable that had just 36000 original miles on it. Florida car. Its got the DOHC 3.0 litre eng. I live in Maine. Very little rust in the rockers. Any thoughts on what might come up for this car stored for months at a time. Had it for a year now and no major issues so far. Tires already changed out. It stalls at a stop sign regularly. Doesnt choke out, just shuts down quietly. And it d be great to here what you think about this long running car from Ford.

They weren't terrible cars but the weak point is the transmission. If it shifts ok, it can be a good car. Don't drive like a maniac. My uncle had one of those and it lasted him some time.
