Very happy with the 2009 Sable compared to 2003 Grand Marquis which we still own. Good vehicle for older people for ease of entry, more room than it appears. Is a fun to drive auto and takes less room to park.
AWD, heated seats, sat. radio, ease of entery and exit
Styling could be a bit sportier, i.e. Impala. Mercury is better product but dealer system is not good in our area. Mercury dealer would rather sell you a Toyota, had to go too far from home to a small town high volume dealer that sold only Ford products.
