Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan

I love my 2000 sable!!!! Its amazing. I have owned it for several years and the only type of maintenance I have had to do is standard! Battery, tune ups, oil changes, etc. In 60,000 I have not had to even do the brakes! I wish they still made the mercury sable! I LOVE MY SABLE!

Heavy like a tank, cushy

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan

I purchased this vehicle when in a financial crisis last year, with only a cash budget of about $3000. When purchased, this car had already about 90k on the clock. With the 90k, I was very impressed at how "new" it felt to drive. Steering was precise, acceleration was more than decent, handling was very good considering it's huge girth. Now, having put MANY highway miles on it, only after one year it's around 150k. In that time, I only have had to buy tires, break pads, and of course oil changes with Mobil 1. What can I say, still drives like it did, when it was "new", emm, well you get the point.




170k miles, and still strong!

Okay, so admittedly, this car is kind of old... It's a 2000, give it a break! But honestly, the thought that Mercury will no longer be making cars makes me sick. The previous owners didn't really take care of it... dirty interior, lack of oil changes, leaky fluids, etc... but WOW did it clean up nice. A box of ArmorAll, some new floor mats, a steering wheel cover, some 'self-fixing' coolant fluid, and an oil change later, and WOW! This car runs like a dream, steering is very responsive (yet acts as a luxury steering system, so you lose a bit of turn radius), acceleration is above average, fuel economy is great (ALWAYS put 93 octane in this car, it will get the best mileage with it).




Unexpectedly amazing!

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan

To begin, let me explain that I purchased this vehicle in haste, in August of 2011. My Sable had 102k on the clock, and had some exterior signs of a earlier collision, but the interior was clean, and the motor sounded well. I jumped in. After only about a week I realized how peppy the 3.0 V6 is. I was very much accustomed to the thriftiness of 4 cylinder cars, but when I began regularly driving the Sable I was not only impressed but satisfied. The ride is comfortable for all shapes and sizes of drivers. The reliability is better than that of a newer Audi I have previously owned. The gadgets are sparce and simple, but they are reliable as well and easy to use. Now at 139K- no problems.




After you hit 100,000 miles

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan

After you hit 100,000 miles a lot of the parts need to be replaced. I notice the parts on the car are cheaper when I replace these parts the replacement parts were made better I had to replace the lower ball joints sway bar links and bushing, hoses, belts, axles bearings, transmission but one thing it has a great motor paid 2000 dollars at 73,000 miles for the car put 3000 dollars after it reach 100,000 miles




Quite surprised

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan

This car has been a wonderful surprise. Very low maintenance and quite dependable. Currently has 136,000 and the engine, just today, had its first tuneup, original plugs still in there. Other than needs for inspection, no other major problems. Just invested $800.00 in it to replace a broken coil spring and strut on one side only. Will drive it until it's gone. Hope the next vehicle I purchase is as great.
