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


Review

Purchased this car with only 35k on it. Elderly lady let it sit most of the time and that accounts for the low mileage. Thought this would make a good second car to drive to work. Bad mistake. Car has had numerous issues since the day of purchase. Complete new brake job, including caliper, pads, and rotors. Coil spring broke and ruptured a new tire. Engine started leaking oil and blowing anti-freeze out recovery tank. Found a leaking oil seal, and blown head gasket. Transmission has a shudder when shifting either up or down. Mechanic says it is a common problem with that make of transmission. Heater core has to be flushed almost bi-weekly in order to have any heat in the winter time. It seems those intelligent engineers designed a by-pass hose that allows rust and sediment to gather in the heater core and then it get stopped up and coolant will not circulate through the heater core. To correct this issue will cost $500! Paid $3500 for car and have now spent in excess of $2500 in repair bills. Now have over $6000 in a car that books for $2500. Have to go now. I hear the phone ringing. Hope it's the GM dealer calling.

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.

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
