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 car

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I actually have a 2003 but I realy enjoy this car. I recent moved and you would not believe how mucg it cargo it can hold. I drove it 750 miles filled to the brim with cargo and the ride was just as smooth as when it's empty and the gas milage was not bad either.




I love my 2004 sable

Vehicle: 2005 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

I shopped for a while before selecting this car for the second time, and I'm glad I did. You heard me right, this car has significant improvements over my previous 97 Taurus Wagon which I also loved to drive. I've driven my 2004 Sable for 14,000 miles so far and haven't had a single problem with it, so yes I'm quite happy. For me, considering what you get, the price of this car made it a no-brainer. I probably would be interested in a Jaguar or a Volvo Wagon too, but only if I didn't have to pay all that extra money. I also think that the Sable is a great looking car, inside and out.

Just a comment - when is Ford going to dump the Duratec? Don't get me wrong, the engine served its purpose. My parents' 97 Sable Duratec V6 was very reliable for five years before it blew a connecti...
