2001 Mercury Sable Wagon LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

The whole family uses the keyless entry. Nice to be able to get into the car when you show up earlier than the driver.

2001 Mercury Sable Wagon LS Premium 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

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
mileage.
Excellent performance from its
Duratek V6 Engine, lots of passing
power. Great road handling ability
makes it a pleasure to drive.


Best Features

Traction and automatic climate controls.


Worst Features

Provide more leg room for front passager.

Review

24 valve engine very responsive with
good gas mileage...extremely reliable
thus far. Very good manufacturing
detail. Only problem was a brake pedal
recall.


Best Features

24 valve engine very responsive. Good gas mileage. Good interior appointments and comfort for the money spent.


Worst Features

Door edge guard trim is in poor position...affording little protection...one of the few negatives on this vehicle; trunk space on sedans is somewhat limited.

Review

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.


Best Features

Consol mounted shifter - makes you feel like you're driving a real car (you know like a beemer) The tight suspension helps a lot to. The Mach Stereo is a must in this car - love Beethoven's Seventh on it.


Worst Features

That nice five speed manual in the Volvo would be a welcom addition - just might make me want another one, or even the sport shift option automatic in the Volvo. I might get one anyway.

Review

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.


Best Features

The engine, console mounted CD changer, compression button for CD player, electronic climate control, automatic headlights


Worst Features

I wish all of the doors would unlock when you open the driver door. A little too much body roll for how firm a ride it is. Dated styling for rear hatchback.
