Long live the Mercury Sable

My 2004 Mercury Sable gs was bought by my grandma back in 2004 and was passed down to me once I got my license. I will say that it is a very stereotypical grandma car but other than that it’s amazing. It handles great and gets great gas mileage, except for when driving at highway speed the wind does blow the car around the lane. The leather seats are very comfy and the heater heats up fast in the winter and the stereo good quality. For having 139,000+ miles on it, it keeps chugging on. There is no rust at all and it has really taken a beating in the past 7 years that the car has been in my parents possession. Overall the car is amazing and will drive it till it dies, and I don’t think it’ll die any time soon.


i love station wagons.

love station wagons!! the later sables are better than the earlier sables. love how the grill goes up with the hood itself. always try to find them on cars.com and auto trader.


The LS Premium is a great riding and reliable car.

The 200 HP engine in the LS Premium gives this car pick up and go. The Leather interior is very comfortable and the MACH sound system is top notch; the heated mirrors were very much appreciated in the winter time. I was a second owner at 10,000 miles and kept this car for 13 years to 152,000 miles. All of the accessories/options still worked. It was a pleasure to pass it on to a new owner and I am sure it will last many more thousands of miles.
