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.




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.




Great car!

I drive over 100 miles a day (round trip to work. It is comfortable and bullet proof. Stock sound system is rock solid. Heating/AC works great. Ride is comfortable and steering is tight (yet smooth). It's not fancy but it gets the job done VERY WELL! Never EVER had any problems and I am well over 100,000 miles. If you find a low mileage one, BUY IT!




Oh such fun!

This car is so much fun to drive. The seats are comfortable, the size is just right, and the engine is so responsive.




Decent but not great!

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan

I bought the car in September of 2006 and I wish I wouldn't have because the fifth day I had to spend $500 to get my intake fixed, and I've spent over $800 dollars trying to get my a/c fixed and still is not fixed right. When I accelerate hard it blows warm, and another 5 months after that I broke down on the side of the road because my transmission had gone out on it. Overall I would never buy another Sable again because it's all Ford parts.




One-owner pleasure

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan

This car has all the features that I need - ABS, traction control, climate control, a beautiful ride at highway speeds and in the city. It has been reliable and I am very impressed with the quality and lack of repairs. This car really is well made and a pleasure to own. My only complaint is the reception of the radio - my other car gets good reception in areas where the Sable reception is poor. Too bad that Ford discontinued the line!
