1990 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan


Review

A friend just inherited another vehicle from a family member, so he gave me his 1990 Sable, which was given to him by another mutual friend of ours when the same thing happened to her, and it was given to her by another family member when she went to Bible College in Chicago. So it is sort of a congregational heirloom? Well, I have only had the car for a week, and I already own an 03 Taurus, I actually like the old Sable over the Taurus. It has a fine Cadillac ride to it, and the motor runs like new. The transmission needs some TLC, which I will soon take care of. The paint job is shot, but I am hoping to fix that next year, if the car makes it through the brutal Iowa winter weather.


Best Features

Interior comfort, mechanically sound vehicles.


Worst Features

They should have put more thought into the crappy paint they put on these cars. The clear coat is gone in several places. The wheel wells on the rear are ugly too.

1990 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Wagon


Review

I've owned this car for 9 years now, bought it in 97 with 96,000 miles on it and used it a lot for camping trips through the years. At 240,000 miles now it just now started breaking down with major mechanics problems. It was THE most reliable car I ever owned. Recent mechanical works were: waterpump & thermostat, wheelbarrings, front & rear breaks & lines, starter, alternator, muffler sytem. Biggest issues now are catalytic converter, flywheel, power steering and fuel injector going out, but that after nearly 1/4 million miles and the car is 16 yrs. old. The paint job is gone and it has some rust by the doors. This car has never seen a garage in it's life. It was built to last and that it did.


Best Features

power windows & cruise control. Very roomie interior but under the hood everything is a bit crammed. Loved the overdrive,saved a lot of gas.


Worst Features

I wish they made cars/wagons like this these days!

1990 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 1990 Merc. Sable in May of '98 w/76K miles. After 7 years and 100k later the car runs like when i first bought it; EXCELLENT. I have performed the maintenance religiously (changed oil every 3K, etc.). The only things I have replaced on the car are the rack and pinion, front struts and new tires. The car has never broken down and it is the most reliable car that we have compared to our other cars who are always visiting the shop for repairs.


Best Features

Full power options, Color (black) front grill, comfortable. Very very reliable! COLD (Brr) A/C.


Worst Features

None really except that it should have a better reputation. Well maintained and this car will last a very long time.

1990 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan


Review

My sable is the first car that i have
ever had. yes it is an older car but it
is more durable than some of the newer
cars. i have been in 3 wrecks since i
got it and only the last two have done
significant damage although only one of
them was my fault.


Best Features

My favorite feature of the sable is the power locks on the windows, the power seats and the am/fm radio cassette player.


Worst Features

i would improve the interior stability. my car is coming apart on the inside by the carpet on the floor and the material used on the visors as well.

Review

i had an '89 sable, but they're
basically the same through '94

the head gasket went out at 90,000 miles

transmission was completely shot at
110,000, after many months, and $1000's
fixing it. do yourself a favor, avoid
any Taurus/Sable prior to a '95 model.


Best Features

lots of features, though most of it was broke or not usable by the time i had to junk this car.


Worst Features

Engine that doesn't suck. parts fit for a car above a power wheels.
