Review of the 2005 Mercury Sable

  • No longer a top contender in the midsize car segment, the Sable is still a decent buy if a low initial price is more important to you than overall refinement and resale value.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Low price, above-average levels of safety and cabin space, available as a sedan or a wagon.

  • Cons

    Low-grade interior materials; poor resale value; doesn't ride, handle or stop as well as other cars in its class.

  • What's New for 2005

    The new model year brings few changes for the Sable. The model lineup has been simplified to GS and LS trims for sedans, and LS trim for the wagon. A CD player is now standard on the LS, along with wood trim and ABS. Oddly, power-adjustable pedals have been dropped altogether. Sable wagon production ends midyear, so if you can't find one at the Mercury dealership, consider buying its twin, the Ford Taurus wagon.

Great, solid car

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

My 2005 Mercury Sable is great! I got a fantastic car, and at a great price. Super value. It has an excellent ride, good performance, and handles great. Has 52,000 miles on it, only routine maintenance thus far (i.e. oil changes & wipers). Still has original tires and brakes! (Never has been in shop for repairs). It has great features for the money, is very comfortable for the family, and has large trunk space. I'm not sure I'll ever let it go. Highly recommend it if looking for a good, solid, used car.

Underpriced

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

This is my 2nd sable; the first lasted over 12 years before it finally quit. The 05 sable exceeded my expectations as far as interior design and build quality. It kind of reminds me of a luxury car. It may not have perfect gas mileage (I average around between 27-29 mpg), but other than that it definitely outclasses most of its competitors. This car deserves a lot more credit.




Okay but never again

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

The car is okay. It has the most features for the price and the dealer has been more than helpful. My car's engine light is on about once every two months. It chuggs along. No comfortable for trips over 170 miles. Not the ideal car to rack miles on and expect minimal maitenance. Does handle well in the snow but not the cold.




Its my 4th sable -

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Sable GS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I love my Sable. It is the fourth one that I have leased and I would not hesitate to lease it again at lease end. It gives me everything I want and more. It is high on performance, looks good and not bad on economy. I can't say enough about the comfort I have in using the Sable. I love it, love it, love it.




Great car with lots of

I am very pleased with the car. It has a great ride, seems solid ,and has good pick up. Why over pay for a Import.
