Review of the 2003 Mercury Sable

  • Representing luxury on the cheap, the 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

    Forgettable rental car persona, not as refined as other cars in its class, ABS available as option only.

  • What's New for 2003

    Not much has changed for Mercury's 2003 Sable. All cars feature a new cupholder design, and the LS Premium trim level offers a no-charge leather trim. Mercury claims that "customers who appreciate understated sophistication will want to know more about the Platinum Edition," which includes aluminum wheels with a center cap ornament and interior trim pieces, perforated leather and a fender badge. Power windows, locks, tilt steering and floor mats are standard across the board, and two new colors brighten up the Sable.

Great griswold wagon

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

My brother asked to help him find a reliable family car. This car would have been at the bottom of my list, but he insisted on checking it out. It had 135k, and looked kinda rough (nothing a good detailing couldn't solve). However the test drive, and a little research sold me. I've driven it quite frequently on long distance trips. The car is an absolute pleasure. It cruses like a Cadillac and I love the sound system and 6-disk changer. There are some obvious electrical problems, and little glitches with power options and I find the climate control confusing when driving. None the less it is a safe, sophisticated family car that I feel absolutely comfortable with my niece riding in.




This one's a sleeper

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this car used with 31K miles in 2005. It's more than met my expectations. Handsome, spacious, easy to drive, good build quality, comfortable for long trips. If you are looking for a performance car to push to its limits, look elsewhere. If you are considering this vehicle as a used car, take advantage of the weak resale value and enjoy it.




Nice car for the money

Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car used three months ago for a second car, mainly short haul. It's capable, comfortable and solid. Leather seats are great. I had a Sable Wagon 12 years ago and the difference is night and day. Makes me a believer in Ford again.




Great alternative to minivans &

Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

After considering several minivans and SUVs to fill the role of our family vehicle we selected a Mercury Sable LS Wagon. It's a great value loaded with so many extras, very comfortable, great incentive laden financing and it carries 8 passengers!

My short-term driving experience

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

From a die-hard big car buyer, I found the 2003 wagon easy to get used to and fun to drive. I found the small side mirrors hard to adjust to eliminate blind spots and the doors are low so I had to check for high curbs when getting out. Build quality could be better: I have to slam the hood hard to make it catch and the interior has fragile looking switches. The gauges are easy to read, even at night, though the headlamps are not very bright. The front bench center seat is about 11 inches wide. Who can fit there? For the money, not a bad value.

Our sable ls wagon

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

We like our wagon for convenience, style, and practicality. The features and options are very good and we like them all. For the money we feel we are getting a lot. The only complaint is that we feel the ride is too stiff and not as smooth as we would like on rough road.
