Re: Honda Accord to Mercury Sable?

At this point, I would recommend a Toyota Camry.

If you really want a Sable Premier, I would be happy to sell you mine. 57k on it. So far no transmission issue. Have had the front struts replaced 3 times though. Offering it for $12,500 locally.

Re: Honda Accord to Mercury Sable?

Definitely more quiet, but you should read about the Sable on this website. Lots of transmission and strut issues with the Sable

Re: 08 Taurus transmission problem

I spoke too soon. It came back today. I guess it is time to take it to the dealer. Of course it warmed up today and that may be an issue.

Re: 08 Taurus transmission problem

I can't even give mine away. Retail on an 08 Sable Premier is around $15k and wholesale is 12,500-13k. The most any dealer has offered me is $11,500. I probably should have taken it, but I just didn't want to lose that much yet. So far, my problem has gone away by itself. No clunking in the last 4 m...

Re: 08 Taurus transmission problem

Each time it has been in the shop, the dealer has not been able to get it to act up. I too am planning on getting rid of this vehicle and buying something else. What Ford does not realize is the more they mess with people the more likely they are to tell their friends not to buy a Ford/Lincoln. Just...

Re: 08 Taurus transmission problem

Mine gets worse in colder weather, especially if the car has sat for a couple days. Works great when it is warm or the car is warmed up.

I was offered $11,500 for my Sable today by a dealer. I can't believe that is what it is actually worth.

Re: 2008 TAURUS

I just compared NADA and KBB and they came up pretty close (within a couple hundred dollars). I agree that NADA is more accurate though.

Re: 2008 TAURUS

Even NADA is a little high.

It has my trade in value at $13k. Local dealers aren't willing to go above 11k in real money. Of course they make it look like $14k.

Re: 2008 TAURUS

It may be worth 17k according to KBB, but you won't get it. I have been trying to sell mine for quite a while and no takers at $13k.
