Report: Cant pass Texas State Inspection
Mercury Sable Problem
Model Year Affected: 2005
Im stuck like Chuck with this Sable. More money has been put in for repairs in last two years than what BlueBook value is. Since mandated Emissions Testing in Travis County this car has not been able to pass inspection due to Check engine and more than 5 error codes on 5 Banks. Ive had to replace catalyc convertors. manifolds, any senSor you can think of. After shelling out 900 to 1000 bucks it miracously PASSES! Within a few days that annoying Check Engine Check Transmission pops up. So here I go again, to top it all Im at a stop and car wont pull, smoking and all transmission fluid is out anther $200 for tow. Of course this happens same month I retire, last thing I need is to purchase a new vehicle. If I had known then what I know today: "Granny would still be driving her MUSTANG!" Just want to spare some grief to a fellow Unstable Sable driver....hmmm Mustang doesnt sound like a bad idea!
