2001 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Traded in a '99 Taurus Wagon w/duatech
v6 - never liked that car much -
wallowed in corners, ride too soft.
Sable flatens out corners, has
respectible handling and extremely
comfortable seats. Also has Duratech v6
- gas mileage about 4mpg overall better
than Taurus. I think it is well worth
the extra grand or so over the Taurus -
much better vehicle.
Consol mounted shifter - makes you feel
like you're driving a real car (you know
like a beemer) The tight suspension
helps a lot to. The Mach Stereo is a
must in this car - love Beethoven's
Seventh on it.
That nice five speed manual in the Volvo
would be a welcom addition - just might
make me want another one, or even the
sport shift option automatic in the
Volvo. I might get one anyway.
