2008 Mercury Sable 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Purchased the car ll/07 and immediately fell in love with it. However, after a few months and several thousand miles some chinks have appeared in its armor. Gas mileage is awful. 20 mpg in mixed driving and 24/25 freeway driving. Computer consistently shows 4 mpg more than car is actually getting. Also, car has developed an annoying noise in the front suspension that is worsening with time. Haven't had a chance to get it back to dealer yet.
Ride height, ease of entry/exit, ride quality, smooth engine/trans combo.
