  • What's New for 1996

    Fresh off the drawing boards for 1996, and it seems the drawing boards were poorly lit. Styling is heavy-handed and homely, but definitely not dull. Otherwise, the new Sable is an excellent car, powered by new engines, suspended by new components and innovative in nearly every way. Longer and wider sedan and wagon bodystyles are offered in GS and LS trim.

Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Sable G 4dr Sedan

We bought our Mercury Sable in poor shape, not really knowing, from a mechanically inclined co-worker. So we thought it was alright. Over the past five years, we replaced the "main brain", the engine, several fan, oil and fuel sensors, front and rear ball joints, power steering pump, serpentine belt and power steering cables, the battery and its cables, installed a good sound system, new tires, and rebuilt the trans. We just love our Mercury Sable 4-door sedan G anyway. It's a perfect family car and worth every penny put into it. We expect it to last for a long time to come.

Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Sable G 4dr Sedan

This is the second Sable car we bought because of good feelings for the first Sable car we bought. It is very confortable to drive. Fuel efficiency is good. There are some problems though. Many parts need to be replaced after it reached 100,000 miles such as motor, rotor, sensors etc. Sensors cost a lot of money to replace. Engine gradually becomes hard to accelerate. "Engine needs to be sericed" light also presents a problem. Evn dealer replaced sevral sensors, the light still on and we gave up on it because the cost to fix the problem.
