My car has over 232,000 miles. Is it worth keeping? How well does engine and Tranny hold up on this model?

Asked by May 28, 2013 at 02:05 PM about the 2009 Mercury Sable Base

Question type: General

I am concerned about how many more miles I can get from this car, with such high miles on it. Anyone out there know if they can go over 235,000 miles with no major problems?

This car is a 1999 Mercury Sable. Sorry, dont know how 2009 got posted. Anyone have info on this model? How many miles can it average on engine/tranny? TY


Why worry about how long it will last? Drive it till something major breaks. That could be years. It's not worth more than $1000 at this point in time.

Drive it with love mine has almost 270,000 and not even a engine knock. Remember to have your tranny fluid switched out just check for colour and shavings. Colour should NOT be burnt and NO metal shavings
