Used 2004 Mercury Sable Review

Edmunds expert review

Representing luxury on the cheap, the Sable is a decent car suffering from an identity crisis.

What's new for 2004

Minor changes include a new front-end treatment with new foglights on the LS Premium, six-spoke alloy wheels as standard equipment on the LS Premium, new taillights on the sedan and new exterior badging. Inside, there's a new steering wheel with lighted cruise control buttons (LS Premium model only), and a 60/40-split rear seat is now standard on all Sables.
