Good car and fun to drive

Vehicle1999 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan
ReviewPurchased the car used with 50K, now has 85K. Has 24 valve DOHC engine which is preferable and peppy. Gets low-mid 20 mph in commuter driving and mid-high 20 mph on road trips. Best mph has been 29 and worst 20. Good drive train and suspension, rides well on all road surfaces/at all speeds. Has a tight body but some moderate road noise. The only issue I've had is with the rebuilt front disc brakes which is more of a parts supplier/mechanic issue than car issue. Great handling and fun to drive car. Bought it for commuting but found it was a good over the road car too.
Best FeaturesThe 24 valve DOHC is a great little engine. Mine is fully loaded with power sunroof, etc. If you can find a DOHC engine with low mileage that has been well cared for don't hesitate to buy one.
Worst FeaturesRoad noise and tell the brakes parts suppliers to shape up. The original brakes, front discs & drum rears w/ABS were perfect.
