Pros

I love the power that this car has.  It rides smoothly and in the year that I've owned it (purchased it in December of 2010) I have yet to have one mechanical problem.

Cons

The styling is a bit mature for my taste, but it being a platinum edition and with adding a tint job, it's helped a bit.

It's A Good Car For Now. — In the year that I've had this car, I 've only had to maintain oil changes and tires. It wasn't my first choice because to me it looks like an "old persons" car, but once I drove it and noted the acceleration and easy handling and all the amenities (its fully loaded), I changed my mind and decided that I could drive this car for now. I wish it was a smaller car. It was stated as being a mid-size sedan in the same class as Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion, but this car is sizeably larger than it's companions of the same year (2005). It feels and drives like a family car. I've driven Lincoln Town Cars and this ride and comfort reminds me of the Lincoln.

Cons

Not fancy or flashy

Good Value For Money — Nice family car and comforting for use with young family members. I had good luck with my previously I owned a Ford Taurus (1997) and passed it on to my daughter in 2005 who drove it about 2 years, then to my niece for another 6 years . So basically I have been happy with both my 2005 Sable and 1997 Taurus (very similar cars).

Mercury Sable — Good reliable car. 100k miles and still runs great. Leather seats, power everything, CD player, very comfortable. Good looking. Roomy, seats 5 easily, huge trunk. Anti-lock brakes and airbags. A little sluggish in accelerating. Not really 'sporty.' It's a family car. Gas mileage is average at best, 25 highway, 17 city.

Uninspiring. — This is the vehicle I always hoped to avoid in the Avis car rental fleets. The ride, and driving comfort of this vehicle were atrocious. And this vehicle drinks a lot of fuel, given that its V6 engine only produces barely over 150 horsepower. I don't know what else I can say about the Taurus and Sable except that I've tried to avoid them at all costs.
