I bought this 2 years old and I enjoy driving it everyday. wonderful interior space, comfortable seats, kids like to use the 3rd seat. Quiet, powerful, smooth ride. I'm sorry that they've discontinued this model. I'm a wagon lover. I like that it has a granny image and is not a status symbol. Makes it more of a surprise to guests.
With both rear seats down, I find the
Cargo space is comparable to 80% of the
SUVs on the market. This vehicle is an
excellent alternative for someone who
needs cargo space but does not want to
endure the harsh road handling traits
of most SUVs with their poor gas
Excellent performance from its
Duratek V6 Engine, lots of passing
power. Great road handling ability
makes it a pleasure to drive.
Traded in a '99 Taurus Wagon w/duatech
v6 - never liked that car much -
wallowed in corners, ride too soft.
Sable flatens out corners, has
respectible handling and extremely
comfortable seats. Also has Duratech v6
- gas mileage about 4mpg overall better
than Taurus. I think it is well worth
the extra grand or so over the Taurus -
much better vehicle.
This is a great car! After 11,000
miles, we have not returned to the
dealer once, for anything. This car
is surprisingly quick and smooth and
it runs on regular gas. We got every
feature there is for less than the
base price of a SUV. It's an
incredible value and really very nice
to drive. The re-design in 2000 was a
necessity; we would not have
purchased this car othewise.
