I got this 1991 sable from my friend 5 year ago. I drove tough 10,000 a year, 125*F 5 passengers MAX A/C up hill +full load in AR.From reno 1,900 trip. -15*F... E brake on snow jump 3-4feet high (try to have anew car) but it still run great. After all that full 1 year abused.I replace 4 strut, tire rod ends,end links and 1engine mount and I start to loving it. And I still drive it more than my subaru wrx STI -comfordable for long drive -roommy -good in snow -good connering -good brake (never lock on dry or wet) -smooth on speed bump rough or off road ONLY one thing I don't like slow acceleration hard to get up hill. But can't compare to my 300 hp STI.
The car was reliable, except when turning right. There was always a loud rusty noise and popping sound and I was told that rotor was welded to something and that made the noise. The front passenger tire was always blowing out and needing replacement.
This car has never been reliable in the 3 years that I have at it I have poured in thousands of dollars to fix problems. No problem is minor if I am able to go 2 months without a problem it just means the next one is going to be bigger than the last. Nothing is to specs none of the parts I buy fit even windshield wipers. Now that Im trying to sell it no one will even pay 800 dollars for it running telling me that it was the worst sable ford ever made I recomend no one to buy this car after 120 k miles it falls apart completely even with regular matainece
seats are comfortable
make the car more reliable a young person like me doesn't have 5000 dollars to invest in a 2000 dollar car
This is a great comfortable car. Runs,
drives and rides good. I bought the car
used with over 100k miles. Just spent
over 20 hours and 400 dollars replacing
head gasket (what a pain). I understand
that blown head gaskets are typical on
these cars. Other than the blown head
gasket, hole in the radiator, new
starter and new brakes.....this is a
I like the electric moving drivers seat,
pretty nice sound system, keyless door
locks and remote door lock/alarm.
Ford should have put in better head
gaskets so we wouldn't have to go
through such a hassle to fix em.
My car was purchased new at the end of
1990 by my grandmother. After she died
in '99, it was purchased by my
neighbors. They did a few minor repairs
to it, nothing major, and then my
parents bought it back for my first
car. I've been driving it for nearly 3
years now and I totally love it! It's
very reliable and comfortable (all of
my friends are glad to catch a ride
with me because of the comfort). My
only complaint is that it isn't exactly
the cutest thing for a teenager to be
driving around! Gas mileage is great,
even with over 130,000 miles on it and
12-13 years of wear and tear, only a
few minor repairs and what not.
The comfort is great, very roomy
interior! I love the gas mileage, I
still get anywhere from 23-27 mpg.
Also, the trunk space is HUGE! Air
conditioner is still blowing strong too.
As a teenager, I wish it was a sportier
car, but hey, that's not the type of
car it is. It's been great as a first
