Buyer beware 2003 Sable will cost you money


2003 Mercury Sable LS Premium 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


The car seemed to to be a good but when you compair all the known specs at the time of purchase but after a few years look out! This car model is no worse than the support from Ford Motor who just does not care in my opinion. I bought the extended warranty so I have had some protection. When you look at what other's have had to repair you will see a pattern. First the A/C goes up after about 2-3 years. Then the door seals leak they needed to be replaced. The car does not burn E85 fuel as listed by Ford. Runs rough and chokes on mixed fuel. The list goes on but now after just 41,500 miles I need spark plug wires.

Best Features

Overall the car looks good and has a good fit on interior and exterior parts. Just wish it would handle better at speeds over 50 miles/hour. The car tend to drift all over the road and the MPG goes way down. In short the faster you go the lower the MPG by 25% plus and the harder it is to handle.

Worst Features

Set the engine up so the average person can do basic repairs. Tell the truth about poor MPG and how fast it drops as speed increases vs other cars! Plus can you believe $684 to change spark plug wires & plugs and it's mostly labor! $155 wires,$55plugs rest labor atDealer who says cann't get 2 wires
