Very pleased with my base model Sable..However the auto I purchased did come with the interior convenience package, Sat. radio, mud flaps, and electric front seats. Very, very quiet, handle well, and rides great.. The transmission is very smooth and the engine is impressive. The fit and finish is extremely good. I feel it was the best car for the money in my price range. I also considered the Avalon, Fusion, Milan, and Tarus. I've had a lot of experience with the Tarus (Sable's twin) with my job and have never had any problems with it. One had over 135000 miles on it. The last time I checked milage was 30.5 with well over half of those miles in city driving.
Confortble and quite ride, room, gas milage, powertrain, safety, quality build with impressive fit and finish, features found on much more expensive vehicles in its class
option of front bench seating which would result in even more room, handle or some mechanism to assist in closing trunk...I prefer turn knobs rather than the many interior push buttons for various selections, but that's just my preference. Buttons have not been a problem..more attractive rear lights
