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).

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

I purchased My 2000 Sable GS Base Model in Feb. 2005 and have not had to do any repairs on it except replace a battery that looked like it had been in there for about 50K. I have never done a tune-up and sometimes push the car to the limit. It has been through a lot and still seems to keep going. It's a car that will never let you down for anything. It has so far, been one of the best cars I have purchased. If you want a reliable, comfortable, no road noise, great sound system, firmed seat car, this is the one to go for. Buy it!

Purchased my Sable with about 75,000 miles in '04. Check engine light came on the first week I owned it. Had to replace the oxygen sensors. During the first year, the back spring broke and punctured the rear tire while I was driving. (They had a recall to put a guard on the tire because the front springs were having this problem, but no reimbursement for the back.) In the past few months, I've replaced the alternator, entire engine and now the transmission is leaking fluid. My dad had to replace the engine in his Mercury Grand Marquis around the 140,000 mark as well. The back suspension has always been creaking - sounds like the back end is going to fall off when you have people in it.
The 2000 Mercury Sable gains new sheet metal and additional refinements. The freshened styling includes a raised hood and deck lid, a larger grille, improved headlamps and taillights and new mirrors. The instrument panel has been updated, and the new integrated control panel provides better functionality. The Sable also gains significant improvements to its safety and powertrain components.
