#1 - Transmission Gear Slipping problem of the 2008 Mercury Sable
The car was a 2008 Mercury Sable. While driving last week my wife noticed that when turning into a parking spot the steering stiffened up and had to make a sudden stop as to not hit the vehicle to her left . I checked the car out and noticed it is mostly affected at low speed while making turns either left or right this had no warning and could be very dangerous. It is just luck that a walker or jogger were not on the streets at the time . This needs immediate attention I will attempt at repair myself as it is out of warranty possible rack and pinion also transmission slippage at times. The failure date was 11/08/12.

#2 - Transmission Gear Slipping problem of the 2002 Mercury Sable
I own a 2002 Mercury Sable VIN # 1mefm5ou42a648807. The automatic transmission slips badly when going from first to second gear. I have been trying to get the dealer, fairfeild Lincoln Mercury, 6065 dixie highway, fairfeild ohio, 45014, to repair the problem since 11/17/03 with no result. On October 25, 2004 I pulled out in traffic and was almost struck when the vehicle failed to shift and accelerate through the intersection. The transmission fails to shift and the rpms maxed out. The vehicle simply coasted throught the intersection and the other vehicle was able to narrowly avoid hitting me. On the three occassion (which I can document) the dealership said they drove the vehicle and could not duplicate the failure and thus they could not repair the vehicle. It was Monday, Oct. 25, 2004 when this transmission gear slipping issue occurred.
