False. I heard rumors of head gasket issues like the 3.8L it replaced but my uncle had his 1999 Sable LS for almost 9 years and it had 100,000 miles on it when it was totaled in October. My mother still has her 1999 Sable LS for 9 years almost and it has only 18,000 miles with only minor issues. I had a 2001 Taurus SEL for 3 years, went from 33,000 miles when I bought it to 46,000 miles when I traded it in. No major issues.
