  • Representing luxury on the cheap, the Sable is a decent car suffering from an identity crisis.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent value for the money, above-average levels of safety and cabin space, available as a sedan or a wagon.

  • Cons

    Forgettable rental car persona, not as refined as other cars in its class.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my Sable new in November of '03 and now have over 100k miles on it and the first thing I had to do to it other than regular maintenance was an A/C compressor this month. The car is stylish,quick and the Mach stereo in it is possibly the best factory stereo Ive ever heard. Comfortable on long trips as well as good mileage. I average around 23 combined city/highway.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my Sable for 5 years and now have 222,000 miles on it. This car still runs great with cold air. I have the 24 valve engine which I think is a lot better than the 3.0 Vulcan engine.I replace the AC compressor at 190,000 miles but other than the front wheel bearings and some basic maintance along with oil changes every 5,000 miles this car is great
