Q: Is a Mercury Sable or Ford Taurus reliable?

asked by on

Is the Mercury Sable or Ford Taurus a reliable car? Specifically the 2008 models.

Hi there, thanks for writing in. As with any car, they are reliable when you take care of them and keep them properly maintained. I would recommend having an expert from Your Mechanic perform a pre-purchasing inspection on any vehicle you plan to purchase in order to spot any potential issues prior to buying.
