87 Sable with 150k miles w/o engine issues and no CA smog failures.
Transmission rebuilt 88k miles and no issues at 150k miles.
Current is 05 Sable LS Duratec.
05 tranny is much improved AX4N.
I service every 20k or whenever annual color test indicates.

Here's an update.!!!!!
Can't believe how long ago I posted this messge. Now March 2011 and I am about to break the 100k mark with no problems other than a bad alternator(still touching wood).
Hope you other T owners are doing as well

102000 miles the air conditioner compressor disintegrated, $750.
So far an alternator and compressor, not too bad. Dilemma time, new car or keepit until it falls apart.
