Mercury Sable. Don’t recall the year. I’ll lookup body style, if that helps.

I think it’s a 4th generation, which runs from 2000-2005.

Absolutely great car. The fuel pump went because someone kept running it out of gas. Change the pump, and drive drive drive.

I’m going for the car in a few minutes. Mech checked everything. Only needed a fuel pump. With towing, pump, and labor, $405.

Re: Any car mechanics in here?


2002 with 140,000 miles. Cracked windshield. Seats cracked. Rearview mirror needs to be replaced. Needs a paint job. Other cosmetic stuff. But glad it runs good.

My cousin’s 23 (maybe 24) yr old son was here today. It was his car in h.s. his sophomore or jr year before my grandmother got it. The appearance of the car made him sad.

Thanks. It’s not that bad, but I also remember it before the paint damage.

Get a good detailer, gas it up, and go.

Update


I’m trying to get this car on the road before Wednesday. Liability insurance. A bill and a half.
Needs 4 new tires.
Need to glue rear view mirror to windshield.
AC needs to be charged. That can wait.
Needs new wipers.

Needs to pass inspection. I am confused about something. Inspection before putting car in my name? Or after? No one can give me a clear answer.

And I lost $30
