Durability and Surprising Performance

Cons

A Great Car — Performance --> The Duratec 3.0L V6 is strong, the handling is not so good (it floats) and the braking is pretty strong. Build Quality --> It is really well put together, it takes a beating and just going. I have had no issues. Appearance --> It is a certifiable granny-mobile but that is okay with me. Cost of Ownership --> Gas mileage is as good as 34 mpg on the open HWY and around town it will average 25 mpg. Maintenance is really cheap as the car has absolutely zero issues. Fun Factor --> The car has little fun factor seeing as it is the choice vehicle among retirees but it is fun to catch people off guard in a streetlight drag race and to surprise people when the car goes flying by passing on the HWY. The car has no cornering abilities though only straight line performance. Overall --> I am extremely satisfied with my car!

2002 Mercury Sable — Now over 145,000 and still going strong. No major repairs other than the air conditioner blower. Still driving on the original drive belt and brakes and no sign of failure. The next planned service will be new struts. Everything you can ask for in a roomy comfortable car.

Great Car For Transporting Kids Of Any Age. — I had to purchase a reliable car that had plenty of seats with leg room and abundant trunk space. I found what I needed in the Sable GS. Affordability and a comfortable ride. Also, I found that we could fit our entire family in the Sable and save approximately 30% on gas alone over our SUV.

Fords Plus — the mercury 2002 sable is definitely a " plus" for ford with its powerful 3 liter v6 motor it ranks up there with any mid-sized sporty car , its wide low profile aluminum wheels and its unique arrow-dynamic body style, its fast sleek and handles like a dream. 1 of Americas best cars of its era. with its great handling and awesome sound system, it make it a all around fun, sporty car.. i love it..

Pretty Good Car! — Good as a second car in the house. Runs good as long as you put 87 octane gas.
