4 years no regrets

I purchased, my 03 Sable GS Plus used with 18,000 miles four years ago. I have to agree with JD Powers, this is a dependable sedan! I have had to replace the camshaft syncronizer, otherwise at 64,000 miles she's a keeper.

Try It -- You'll Like It

I bought my Sable LS Premium Wagon used 3 years ago (2005) with 31K. I now have 67K on it. Bought it for the price and its good looks. My wife had a series of GM cars before this and the Sable has converted us to Ford. Very tight, comfortable, drives well, economical and almost maintenance free. Difficult to find anything to complain about. Handsome from the outside, particularly the front grill, which is a huge improvement from its Ford counterpart (ugh). Comfortable for long trips. Large and comfortable interior. Useful hidden storage area in rear. At first my wife thought this was where the spare tire went and the car came without it. Maintenance wise, I've had just a brake job in 35,000 miles. Interior, the radio display is a little confusing - a forest of buttons - but you get used to it. Also a little more wind and road noise than I would like, but that's a small complaint. This car may not have the cachet of some others, but try it -- you'll like it.

BOUGHT IT YESTERDAY

So far I am happy with it. Very nice car. Love the power options, sun roof. What I don't like is that I feel like I can't see out the windshield well enough, my head is almost touching the ceiling of the car. That is my ONLY complaint. I am a big girl though, but only 5ft 4, maybe there is a way I can find to lower my seat. I haven't found that out yet.

Best car I've owned

The 03 sable is Absolutly the most reliable car I've ever purchased. I have had it for almost 2 years, and enjoy it as much now as when I first bought it.
