It won't quit
By tsandy1 on 04/01/14 18:27 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2001 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

210,000 miles and it won't quit. We bought it used with 38,000 miles on it. I was hoping for a major break down after a few years so I could get a different car. I hate having the same car too long. I like variety. Damned thing just kept going. We finally had to give it to our son. We thought if anybody could kill it, he could. Nope, it's still going. I am amazed at how good of a car this thing has been. We truly have only done routine maintenance on it. Cosmetically hasn't held up as well as my 2001 Cadillac DeVille, but mechanically the Sable has been a champ.

i have a 2001 sable that my fiance bought 7 years ago with 185k on it. i do all the normal maintance on it, ive NEVER done any major work on it. the most intense ive got with it was a water pump. i was brought up as a chevy man, dont get me wrong i love the bowtie but my sable is probably the best car we have ever had. today 8-20-2013 the sable hit 400,000 miles!!!! i am beyond impressed with this car. i would most defenatly buy another one :)

Still Rolling

2001 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I bought my Sable used at 85K miles. I now have 147K miles on it and still rolling along. I've replaced the blower motor, IAC valve, ignition coil and of course had the door panels reglued when they fell down, but with the inexpensive used price it's hard to complain. Just took it through the mountains of WV and got 28.5-29.75 mpg at 70+. Get about 21 mpg around town. Comfortable ride on the highway. I'm going to have trouble finding a replacement when the time comes.

What A Pile
By The Expert on 10/08/09 18:58 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2001 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

First I cannot admit that I could bring myself to purchase this car because it is not my car but my parents'. I have used it over the years as a loaner when needed. I have driven many American cars and currently own a 2004 Honda Accord and a 2010 Toyota Camry. This car is such a pile that it is hard to be intellectual about it. I won't go into the endless maintenance problems and monies spent but just say that it is so joyless and clunky to drive. It is a V6 yet drives as though it would rather be sitting in a pasture rusting. It lumbers along and the shifting is clunky. The best shape this car could be in is a cube at the junkyard.

Best car I've ever owned
By pumpkin5092000 on 09/12/09 21:59 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

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!

Love it, love it

2001 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Absolutely love my Sable. The ride and handling is absolutely the perfect mix. Great performance in mountain driving here in New Mexico, and will just glide across the desert 85 miles per hour all day quietly and smoothly getting 33 mpg highway and an amazing 29 in town. I have a bad back, and these are the best seats ever. When my back hurts, I just go for a drive in the Sable, and I'm fixed. Have had a couple of minor mechanical issues. Had to replace the serpentine belt tensioner and EGR valve, but big deal. Car makes me feel like I am driving a luxury car, and beautiful to boot.

Money Wasted

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

Review

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

Review

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

Review

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.

So far so good in the Sable

2001 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I've had my Sable since November and so far it has been great. I'm 23 so I can't say I love the car, but it's done everything I've asked it to so far. I bought it as a fill in until I can buy something I really like, and it's been great. I occasionally drive about 4 hours to see my family and the Sable has performed wonderfully. I get roughly 27 mpg on the highway and between 17-20 around town. Mine is the base model with almost no options, but it performs great for what it is. Very solid, reliable sedan with room to spare.
