1996 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Wagon GS 4dr Wagon
Bought car used. Needed to refurbish transmission, and replace a couple of seat belts. Later realized that the indoor courtesy light didn't always turn off because the car thought a door was open, even thought it wasn't. 2 years later I had to get the transmission refurbished again. The seat belts twist and get stuck all the time. Finally ended up pulling out all the indoor courtesy bulbs to deal with light issue. Car doesn't have much pep, especially going uphill. Rear blade eventually stopped functioning as well as A/C. Stereo not working that great since 2005.
3rd seat for the occasional times when you have a lot of people. 6-way Power driver seat - for short people it's really handy to be able to have the seat up higher so you can take advantage of the sun visor. cup holder and tray in middle. Power windows and side view windows. Rear window defogger.
This could have been a really good car with all the comfort and features, but it just seems that there's too many things that don't work quite right. The seat belts need a better design - they should not be twisting all the time. And the transmission should be more durable as well.
