1999 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan

Review

At 64K miles the transmission went out. It was a bad bearing on the pumpshaft which took out the torque converter. That cost $850. At 87K miles a friend wanted to buy it. I told him to have a mechanic check it out and drive it for a few days. Turns out the head gasket was blown. I had no idea. It never got hot and since you can't actually see in the radiator, and the little bottle stayed full, nobody caught it. We are now pround Camry owners.

1999 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Wagon

Review

I travel 45k miles per year, and trade every 18 months or so. I bought the Sable because the price was better than the Focus wagon I wanted...then discovered tons of comfort, awesome ride, amazing Mach audio system, space galore, a strong feeling of safety, and good looks. I'm looking forward to trading this for the '03 model!

Review

This is the first Sable I've ever owned, and I purchased it new. After having a horrible experience with an Escort, I was very leary about owning anything of the Ford or Mercury Division. I love this car. The trunk is unbelievably large. The 24V DOHC gives it great zip and go. It corner great and handles wonderfully in bad weather. My only negative experience was having to replace both back brakes including calipers and rotors this past summer with about 40,000 miles on them.

Car has worked flawlessly,nothing but regular maintenance to date. Replaced original set of tires at 58k miles. Automatic transmission shifting good be smoother from low to high gear when power accelerating. Car is ugly, but very comfortable to drive.

Review

I've had the vehicle in the shop 3 times in the past 2 years for transmission problems. Not sure if this is typical of a Sable or Carmax issues. Also, the gas gauge has never worked correctly.

Great

Review

I usually drive about 300 miles a day, and with the Sable, I never get bored. Great performance, I feel safe, it's comfortable, and reliable. I drove 2000 miles to North Carolina and back, and she made it just beautifully. I love my car, and with oil changes every 5,000 miles instead of 3,000, I never worry about being that poor girl broke down on the side of the road!

Bargain, good all around car

Review

First brake job @ 68K, oil changes every 4K, high mileage user, car keeps running like a charm. This is Sable #3 for me. This is the first to have problems, although under extended warranty. 2nd Transmission for some reason, never had problems with the others. Good gas mileage on the long trips, many times hauling a LARGE trunk full of "stuff" and 5 people of normal size. Great family car that's still fun to drive with 24V engine!

Driven 50,000 miles over the past two years, no major problems. Just did my first brake job at 65,000 miles along with a major tune-up. Oil changes every 6,000 miles with filter changes every other 12,000. Driven every day for business. Over the road Salesman start and stop traffic, with alot of highway miles.
