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


Review

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.


Best Features

Mach stereo is awesome. Very nice leather interior.


Worst Features

Cant think of any as I have enjoyed this car more than any Ive ever owned.

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


Review

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


Best Features

Mach stero and it rides like a more expensive car


Worst Features

None. Should not have canceled production. This is the kind of quality Ford has been trying for years. They had the quality but not the consumers confidence

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


Review

I bought my 04 Sable in the spring of '05. It was a program car and I got a great deal on it. Its been absolutely problem free from day one. Only oil changes, 1 set of tires and 1 set of brake pads. It has really sold me on Ford products again. Currently looking for another program car just coming off lease. I saved a ton over new car cost and definitely got my money's worth. Next car will be an 08 Sable, probably another program car. You know old ladies drive em so they're not abused. Oh yeah, it seems like this 3.0 duratec gets better with age. The car feels like it has more power than it did at 20K which is how many miles it had when I bought it.


Best Features

All the luxury goodies like auto climate, outside temp and compass, 6 changer CD, leather seats. People are impressed with the interior.


Worst Features

Since its no longer being produced no need to suggest any improvements.

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


Review

Traded a 2002 Miata in for it when I needed a new car to drive coast to coast pulling a trailer. Wound up making the drive twice and the car performed flawlessly. Now has 55,000 miles on it and the only repair trip to the dealer was to replace a failing speaker. Car has DOHC 3.0 engine. Pulls down 28 MPG on the highway and 22-24 MPG around town which is surprising for its size. In winter I use 4 studded snows and have never gotten stuck in the worst storms New England can throw at it.


Best Features

Comfort features and gas mileage.


Worst Features

Add an outside temperature gauge.

Review

I bought a 2004 Mercury Sable, I like the look of the car I like the size of the car I like the interior, but I have had some hugh problems. First it started with my Starter needing to be replaced ar 30,000 miles, then my battery kept dying, I have to date changed the battery three times and the dealership cannot figure out what is draining my battery, but the dealership is taking the easy way out and saying things to me like, "You must have left your lights on," not once have I left my lights on or a door open? Now the car has 37,000 miles and the transmission needs to be replaced. I will never buy an American car again.


Best Features

The interior and exterior are nice


Worst Features

The engine.
