Very Reliable, comfortable, nice riding car.

The Mercury Sable is essentially a Ford Taurus with minor variations, mostly to the exterior styling. I find it a very comfortable, dependable, and practical car, an excellent value for the money. The roomy back seat and very large trunk space are great for family trips or transporting lots of stuff. The 3-liter V6 200 hp engine is well known for its dependability and longevity, many exceeding 200,000 miles. A very fine American made vehicle.


Excellent car

I bought this car new and it now has 140,000 miles on it. It has required no significant maintenance, it owes me nothing. It has been comfortable, dependable transportation. Huge trunk. In my opinion, Mercury could have marketed this car as a luxury model with all the options that it has: cruise control, automatic lights on/off, power seat, power windows, climate control, etc., etc.


1997 Mercury Sable LS Turbocharged v6

Excellent first buy, very comfortable seating Great on gas and just the shape makes for a smooth ride.. Very easy to fit 6 LARGE ADULTS inside easly. I put a custom turbo charger in mine with my brother and this car blew out my friends honda s2000 and hes got a stage 3 turbo aswell. VERY IMPRESSIVE except replacing tires is not cheap at all
