I'm considering buying an 87 Sable from my mechanic, he's asking $750. It has 93,000mi. on it and seems to be a solid car, it's for my daughter to get around locally. This car has got all the bells & whistles, power everything and it all works. If anyone has had an 87, let me know how you liked it and any problems you had with it. One thing I noticed when I drove it was when it shifts from 1st to 2nd, right after it gets into 2nd, it revs up slightly for a second, almost like the tranny is slipping. I questioned my mechanic about it, he said it has done that for years but has never been a problem (his wife drove it for the past 7 yrs.), he has checked and adjusted the transmission and can find nothing wrong. I trust this guy, I've been bringing my cars to him for 10yrs. and he has always been honest with me. Anyone else have a similar issue?
