1999 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 1999 Sable in 2000. I have
only had to do routine maitenance on it
and have had NO problems with the car
whatsoever. It is a smooth and
comfortable ride and the most
dependable car I have ever owned. The
only negative thing I can even say
about it is that it is a bit of a gas
hog. Other than that, I love my Sable:)


Best Features

Dependability and comfort.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

1999 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Wagon


Review

I always wanted a big wagon with wood
paneling. But those 80's Fords were too
old. But I also wanted a used car. So
when I swa one of these on the road I
wanted it. I didn't like the front of
the Ford Tarus model, I liked the front
of the Mercury, the turn signals being
in the grille.(reminds me of an old
1960's Dodge Dart.)So, it was not too
old, but not brand new, so I bought a
white SL model. I then bought a roll of
fake wood paneling, from Stripeman.com,
and coustomized my wagon. (I loved the
Brady Bunch wagon.)It was a bit pricey,
but I loved the way my new wagon looked!
Its a great family car, lots of room and
versital, if you get one with a roof
rack like I did.


Best Features

It looks great with wood, if you coustomize it, and I can haul my Airstream trailer with it.


Worst Features

It should of come with a wood paneling option when it was built; But otherwise, its my favorite wagon in the past 10 years.

Review

I bought the car with 84k miles and I'm
impressed. The Duratec engine starts
easy in the winter and has ample pep. I
get about 22.5 mpg on average (after
tune up), which could be better I
think. It's comfortable, quiet and
roomy. No problem driving in snow. Huge
trunk but the opening could be bigger.
Its rather susceptible to cross winds
when driving at highway speeds but
otherwise smooth and solid (no rattle).
The heated mirrors clear ice/snow build
up pretty quick. Plenty of room for 3
kid seats in the back.


Best Features

Love the auto climate control, one touch moonroof opening, heated mirrors, and tight turn radius.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage and larger trunk opening.

Review

We are just about at 70,000 miles and
never had any major repairs. The car
is much faster than compatible modles
and the LS trim makes the car look
real sleak. Don't be afraid of
buying as sable! However, never buy
one with a trailer hitch as the
tranmittions are not designed for
towing. Stay away fromt the 3.8 Liter
motor because of head gasket
problems. I have leather seats,
sunroof and climate control and a
compatible Toyota Camry would have
been a lot of thousands more. Why pay
all that extra money.


Best Features

Sunroof

Review

First car I bought new when I was just
out of college. very impressed that I
could afford leather and a moon roof
for $23,000- tax, title, license all
included--- and 0.9% financing to boot.
test drove a pontiac grand prix and
couldn't see out of it
Sable is a good buy for what you get.
Good on tires- first set went to 65,000
miles... got the same mileage out of
original brakes as well. Would
recommend car to anyone looking for a
good used car (provided the original
owener took good care of it, of course).


Best Features

The layout of the interior- features (heat, radio, etc...) very accessible to driver.


Worst Features

more horsepower
