This car is a BEAST. I used and abused her as a teenager and she has SURVIVED through it all! Still running, after only basic oil changes maybe every 5000 miles. Def has some war stains in my Sable, and will most likely be wholesaled when I do decide to trade her in. (That will be a sentimental day which is ironic considering the first time I saw this car I was horrified my parents would choose something so hideious!) All in all she has really been super good to me. I have never been smoking on the side of the road, maybe replaced my battery 1 time, my starter 1 time, my tires 1 time (oops). Super good, reliable, fuel efficient, safe, low key, no problems-take care of me-and I'll take care of you-car.

I purchased this car in December of 2003 for $10,500.00 including tax/title. The car was a fleet car from Enterprise with 15,000 miles on it. I still had time on the original warranty and I also purchased the extended warranty. So I am covered until the car is payed off. This is one of the nicest cars I have ever owned. It has a very roomy interior and a large, deep trunk, CD player, tinting rear view mirror. It a great car to drive and I am getting well over 300 miles of "in town" driving to one tank of gas! I fill my tank up only twice a month. I am very pleased with this car. In fact, the car pictured here on this site is the same color as mine..."arizona beige".

I REALLY LIKE THE SABLE GS PLUS,ATTRACTIVE IN AND OUT,SUPER RIDE, AND A LUMBAR FOR SUPPORT,AND SAFE IN THE CRASH TESTS WAS ALSO A PLUS ..THIS WAS A USED VEHICLE BUT ALL THESE FEATURES SOLD ME..I'D BUY ANOTHER ONE, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT..GAS MILAGE NOT TOO BAD EITHER,AND STAYING WITHIN THE SPEED LIMITS IS A GREAT FACTOR TO STRETCHING THAT HIGH PRICE GAS TOO.(SO FOR SO GOOD).

More problems than I can count

My sister and I both bought used 2002 sables with approx 16,000 miles on them back in 2003. Since that time we both have had more problems that we can count, even though we have both kept our cars in great shape and did all the scheduled maintenance, etc. Her's is still barely running; mine bit the dust a few weeks ago. Here's a list of the problems we've had: - ticking sound from under the hood that no one can figure out. - wheels puncture from issue with wheel well. My sister had at least 4 blow outs due to this issue. - power steering issues/system breakdown. - interior faux-leather paneling on doors fell/peeled off. - SCARIEST: vehicle stalls, generally while going around 60 mph!

Expected better

I expected better from the 2002 Sable. I've owned Ford products my whole life and never had the problems I've had with this car. I purchased used with less than 55,000 miles and just turned over 80,000 miles. In the last 18 months, I had to replace the fuel pump - car let me down while I was on vacation and I had to rent a car to get to my destination! A month ago I replaced the right ball socket and head gasket. Ever since the head gasket was replaced, the heat doesn't work right - not good in the Northeast during the winter. Also, since the head gasket was replaced, the engine was making a chirping sound. From outside the vehicle, sounded like a belt slipping - it's the camshaft sensor!
