  • 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.

Good car but gas lover

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Sable

I bought this car used with low miles. Really happy with it so far. The V-6 is very powerful and this car really is a runner. Built pretty well. My only complaint is the gas mileage which was a real eye opener to me after driving an economy car for so long. Other than that, I love it. The 1995 model is the last year that they made them good like this, is what I heard.




Best first car ever!

Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Sable

This car was the first car I have ever owned. My great grandma bought it used being previously as a rental car in 96. when she gave it to me in 2007 it had 75k miles on it and no problems. After getting it i have only had to do mainly maintenance items on it such as tires and fluid changes. the build of the car makes it easy to replace anything in the car and the parts tend to be cheap and affordable. a few months ago I was in a accident where my poor car was totaled i still drive it she is a trooper. I would highly recommend this car highly dependable for its age. I am about to give the car to my sister as her first car and i hope that it will still be as dependable as it was for me.

Wow, what a car!

Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Sable

My car was purchased by my employer for me to commute between cities in Florida. When I was relocated to Pennsylvania 10 years ago, they gave me the option of buying it and what a buy I got! This car has not had any major problems or defects. I have kept all of the maintenance on it regular and I think it is key to owning any car. I did replace the radiator last year but that is expected of a car of this age.

Old faithful

Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Sable

I bought the car from a small used car lot for 3000 dollars. The outside was flawless. It has the most unique mermaid green paint that's recognizable for miles...helps you spot the car in large parking lots. It had 50,000 miles on it so I just bought it for the low mileage. Turned out to be the best car I ever owned. Reliable, comfortable on trips and excellent gas mileage were just a surprise! Friends love the back seat with all the kids on board. I relaced the radio and sway bars. The car is so dependable I fell in love with it. What a bargain.

Really good car

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Sable

Bought this vehicle from 92-year old woman. OK, there were dings and a few outside scars, but in nearly two years, this car performed wonderfully. Never had to put any money, except for inspection and oil changes, into it. Now with more than 27,000 miles on it ... still runs great. I'd say, for the initial investment, one of the best cars I've had.




A ok car

Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Sable

I bought the car for $250 from a friend. Sold it to me cheap because the tranmission needs to be rebuilt, revs high going into 3rd gear.The speedometer is also very bouncy on the car. right now the car sits because of a bad starter, but once replaced it should be back in working condition. Car has lots of room, and is very comfortable. So other than the speedometer, transmission and starter not a bad car for $250.

I'm comparing the 2006 Milan to its euthanasia-ed siblings 1996, 1999 & 2003 Sables, none of which got that low mpg all under the same conditions....
