2005 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Extremely dependable, a great highway cruiser w/mpg average 23-25. This is my 4th Sable and will easily last over 200,000 miles in my experience. Weakest link is the transmission. However, if you change fluids on time, tell her you love her once a week- she will love you back. Very high rating on dependability and safety. This is not your dad's Sable.


Best Features

24 V / 220 Horse power, stereo, interior and the highway ride. Automated climate control, over all value.


Worst Features

Transmission needs a little more beef. Don't skimp on cheap brakes when replacing front discs / pads.

2005 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I really love this car, especially now that I purchased better all season tires! I purchased this car with 19,000 miles for $12,000. It is completely loaded. I now have 45,000 miles on it and have not had any issues. It has a very strong v6 dohc engine that is fast on acceleration. The interior appointments look rich and classy. I also had a V6 Camry before this and I can truthfully say that for the price difference, the Sable is just as good - so far. I sold my Camry with 166,000 miles without any issues, hopefully the Sable will give me the same reliability, only time will tell.


Best Features

Leather interior, dash layout, body style, sound system, gas mileage 21 to 22 miles per gallon combined driving


Worst Features

Don't like how low the sun visors come down when pulled down. Can't lock fold down rear seats and no valor key offered to lock trunk.

Review

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.


Best Features

Ride, handling, safety, comfort


Worst Features

Gas mileage is only negative that comes to mind but is probably consistent with other makes/models of its class (about 18 MPG in city driving, 25/26 highway)

Review

Just having my accident a few weeks before, was looking and not buying but going to a 2004 Nissan Sentra to a bigger car was adjustment. Driving and sitting in the Sable was different than Sentra. Going from 15,900 to 13,900 and 15480 miles on it was a good deal. The leather seating and wood console was class and all around controls were easily on reach. The trunk was huge to me and its a smooth ride


Best Features

Huge trunk, cruise control, climate control, leather seating, sound system is good


Worst Features

CD player needed and put in dash..should be standard
