2008 Mercury Sable Premier 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


This is our second Sable, the first was a 1997, and fourth Ford product. As time goes by it seems the quality does not get better. My 1997 Sable was a better vehicle than the 08. At first it was a smooth operating vehicle, after about 20k it developed transmission problem. The Radio/CD player broke and the suspension started to go. Now it is in the shop for an unknown problem, every light on the dash came on , its like the car put itself in safe mode. Don't get me wrong, this is a good vehicle with plenty of room, a strong AC and decent mileage on the highway. Test drive before you drive, after a while it will sound like a lawnmower inside and the transmission will shift hard.

Best Features

Looks. Highway mileage. Interior space. Price ( I got the employee discount). Price.

Worst Features

Finish, trim the plastic parts better. Give it the same quality you would give the Lincoln. A more reliable suspension. Do better testing, my heated seat burned out after two winters.
