Review of the 2001 Mercury Sable

  • Representing luxury on the cheap, Sable is a decent car suffering from an identity crisis.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent value for the money, high level of safety, available as a sedan or a wagon.

  • Cons

    Rental car stigma, front seats lack comfort, no rear disc brakes on the sedan.

  • What's New for 2001

    A new child safety-seat restraint system is in place as well as a larger 18-gallon fuel tank. There's also a clearcoat metallic paint swap, trading Tropic Green for Spruce Green. Otherwise, no changes for the recently freshened Sable.

Best car i've ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This car was given to me with 60xxx miles on it by my folks who bought it new. I LOVE THIS CAR!!! The only problem we ever had was with the coil springs. It has been incredibly reliable. I just recently gave it to my friend's daughter. It has over 300XXX miles on it now and still runs like new. This has been the perfect car. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone!

Money wasted

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car used with only 80,000 miles on it. 3 days after purchase the trans went out, thank god for 30 day warranties, but then the blower for the heater went out, the wiring for the AC burnt up so now no heat or air, coils burnt out, the driver's side window keeps getting stuck, will go down but not back up,even put a new window motor in it 3 times, still have this problem. I paid $5,000 for the car and have put $4,000 in it and still have nothing but junk!




Great car

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned this car for 7 years. The only thing I've done is change tires and a battery. Car drives like a sports car and rides like a Lincoln. Great handling in mountain curves.




Nice

This car is in my family and I drive it sometimes. My dad loves it. It had only minor problems in the almost 3 years we've had it including this freaky thing where the left passenger side window shattered out of nowhere. It has 50,000 something miles and is still doing great.

Problems and more problems

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

After two years I am really ready to get rid of this car. The transmission went out at only 57,000 miles last year - now I am told I need a valve job! I am lucky to get 17 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. Doesn't handle on highway well and has passes very poorly. It is bulky and sluggish. Have owned four Taurus and loved them all - but this beast is possessed! Never, ever again. We are trading for a Toyota!




Gotta love it!

I like my car. I enjoy having room to carpool or take my friends on rides. I'd by another sable, I'd just get more features!
