Transmission problems are very common in all Taurus/Sable cars, police or not!.

My old pd: 5 people had a Taurus/Sable, 3 did tranny swaps under 100K (I was a lucky one)

They also have issues with motor mounts, usually when the tranny acts up the torque is too much for the mounts and the end up cracking or tweaked. I had a 93 and the dam tranny went and took the mounts with it. It was a $900+ fix but was covered on the extended warranty.

A better question would be why buy an MSP anything? If they are selling it, there's a reason for it! Plus, given how they drive their cars, you can bet it's had a beating...even in just 23K miles.

I bought the car at 19k miles...it had been in a minor accident (minimal frame damage, mainly front pass. fender/door), and then they let it sit for 2 years, finally dumped it in an auction.

Either way, I got it checked out....500$ to fix up (this problem, that is)

Talked to a MSP Trooper w/a '97 undercover Lumina yesterday @ my roadjob. I though they were all retired-he told me there were still 50 or so left in service. I just don't think the frontwheel drive stands up to Police duty.... :roll:
