Looking to purchase 04 Sable LS.

Post by dderose » Thu Sep 28, 2017 7:15 am

Car has a little over 50000 on it. Maintenance is documented. Would you buy this car assuming everything is working?

What are the trouble spots and what should I look for?

Thank you.

An 04 with a little over 50k miles? Wow, that's a creampuff!

Seems it. Just not sure if it is too good to be true. I have not seen it yet. Maybe over the weekend.

I'm on my 3rd Taurus (actually, it's a Sable), 2 with a Vulcan motor, and now a Duratec. I've found them to be utterly reliable, well built, and economical. I've heard about transmission issues, but later ones are pretty well sorted out. Change the fluid every 30K and it should be OK. If you like the price and it looks well cared for, you can't go wrong.
