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!


Best Features

RELIABILITY!! Incredibly reliable, very smooth and comfortable (even with my severe back problems), incredible car all around.


Worst Features

Fix problem with the coil springs. (3 of 4 broke) easy fix with quick-struts.

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!


Best Features

None, interior is small and feel like I am driving a sardine can.


Worst Features

Quit making junk like this and make a more quality car.

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


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.


Best Features

The way the car handles, overall comfort on long trips.


Worst Features

Seat belt alarm drives you crazy until you buckle. I wish it would beep but not forever.

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.


Best Features

easy handling

Review

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!


Best Features

Interior comforts - seats, cd systems, cruise control.


Worst Features

Reliability, realiability, realiability. Who wants to be at the mechanics every month?
