1999 Mercury Sable LS 4dr Wagon


My mrs got a Chevrolet Astrovan few years ago so decided to find an American car for me. Had it for nearly 4 years now. Been great to drive BUT is a gas guzzler, had to replace brake pads and discs which i think is wear and tear, also had some other matters to do with exhaust and suspension fixed. Windsreen wipers come to life by themselves and is infuriating. Now i have to replace front wheel bearings, and replace rad after leak which needed to be imported from USA. ABS light comes on frequently. Does not sound too promising especially when i have to take it to a specialised garage and is away for a month at a time. On plus side it's bigger than UK vehicles and fast. Comfy and solid

Best Features

It's American! Big, left hand drive, automatic..like the shift stick as opposed to a manual car. With 7-8 seats was great at time of purchase (for family) but now my circumstances are different i'd prefer a sedan. Very big boot with seats down. Fast car good engine and good handling.

Worst Features

great for my first American car. Seems to be a common theme reading reviews that the windscreen wipers go off on their own. Clearly not a major issue. Disappointed with the on going problems seems more than wear an tear. Squeeling around the fan belt also quite annoying at times.
