I traded in my 2000 Sable for it which was a very hard and sad thing for me to do. However I'm getting a great car for a great price.

The car is a 2008 Sable Premier. It's LOADED. Two tone vented heated leather seats, SYNC with navigation, autolamps, everything.

3.5L Duratec/Cyclone motor making 263HP mated to a 6 speed auto trans. NOT CVT.

More info on my car is attached in a PDF.

I have a 36k/36 month bumper to bumper warranty through Ford with this car.


Some more info on her:
-73k miles as of 4/13
-New Motorcraft battery was put in the date of the sale to me - 4/15/13
-Tires were put on at 65k miles
-Rear brakes are brand new, put on at 73k
-Front brakes are original from the factory. I will be upgrading those.
-Steering rack was replaced under warranty at 30k with OEM NEW Ford rack
-Throttle body was replaced at 34k (just outside of warranty)
-It's had 4 wheel alignments like every 10k miles!
-PS fluid flush at 65k
-Trans fluid change at 45k (even though the manual says every 150k)
-Always has had a motorcraft filter and 5w-20 semi-synthetic motorcraft oil. I will be using motorcraft oil and filter as well. It uses an FL400S
-ALL maintenance and repairs were done at the Ford dealer it was originally bought from, and the one I bought it from. I have all maintenance records and it was maintained well!


Some pics (will take more when I get it):



These are crappy photos the dealer took when trying to sell it:





The interior doesn't look like the pictures show. It's a different color than it looks.




SO MUCH LEG ROOM!



4 dead bodies??


It's bent, but he said they will fix/replace it:



WHAT SHOULD I DO TO MOD IT?!?!?!?!? I will probably put an aftermarket radio in since that nav system can be sold for A LOT!

You get an accessory trunk organizer with it, nice. Largest trunk to ever be offered in the United States on a production sedan. ;)

4 dead bodies if positioned right. Yes the trunk organizer is sweet!

I'm keeping the little kit that says '2000 Sable' on it from the 2000 as a souvenir. It has goodies in it that will go in that trunk organizer.

Sadie is the only one I like.

SPOILER!



(yes, I know that's a Montego)

Only catch is that it hangs over onto the rear quarter panels.



Or this one:

Name her Sadie baby! I would take your time and look at the best Nav/double din HD radio/pandora/with back up cam unit your can afford so you don't suffer buyers remorse and its going to cost a few car payment equivalents for a decent one. Also maybe perhaps HID's?

Behlinla had the idea for Sadie first. I'm liking it more and more!

The blue is pretty Josh.

I will be getting pics of both cars side by side today.

I will be making a few demands (well, hopefully I will get my way haha) when we go to sign a deal today.

I want:
-The bent rim fixed or replaced
-To have them take a wheel off so I can inspect the brakes

$500 off sticker price unless he meets these demands:
-Enough coolant to fill the system
-Battery replaced
-Drivers heated seat fixed
-Brakes replaced on all 4 corners (maybe....)
OR
-1 month warranty incase anything goes awry
