18,000 — Love this car 100%- this car rides extremely smooth, no road noise and can barely feel bumps, the tires are massive which adds to it's smooth ride. The one thing I love is it heats up in a matter of min even on the coldest days, the heated seats don't hurt either. The car is solid, doesn't feel cheap at all. Great gas mileage for the size of car. Tons of interior room, large trunk space. all the options you could ever need. This is my 2nd Sable and if they made it in a convertible I'd buy another one in a heart beat.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — Using the 6 cd player is great on long trips. Car is the best ever, when you upgrade from Ford models there is a big difference! Fold down rear seat opens up trunk area so you can haul anything you need to haul. Try one and see for yourself. Thanks.

2008 Mercury Sable — this has to be the second best sable of all time just behind the '04 platinum edition, with AWD and a 3.5 Duratec v6 this thing is a rocket, with over 265 hp and identical tq, this beast charges to 60 in an impressive 6.3 seconds with a 6 speed transmission it can easily cope with cruising speeds of 85+ with ease, adverse weather condition are no match for this sable, with all the tq at each wheel wet pavement doesn't stand a chance, if you want one you better start looking this car is a bound future classic, low production numbers make this sable a rare breed

Almost There — I have just purchased a Mercury Sable.. in Canada, where we haven't seen Mercurys, new, for several years. The Ford dealers are bringing up U.S. Taurus Limiteds and Sable Premiers and selling them, lightly used, on their lots at discounts waaaay below the price of comparable Canadian Taurus. This reinforces the view, no matter which car it is, that North American manufacturers are giving their cars away. They look desperate. This has to be reversed, and not by any smoke and mirrors method, but by offering cars that reflect clear and positive thinking about what a vehicle should be, and making the right design choices in regards to that. I have owned many Taurus and one Sable over the years; they always have been decent enough road cars. Until now I have never had that special attachment to them... but this new Sable reminds me of a Merkur Scorpio I owned once that I loved dearly, as it was a PERFECT blend of true grit, road manners, handling and sumptuous, but not unnecessary, luxury in a larger sedan. The new Sable almost has all of that... it is one tweak away from perfection. Next year will be FoMoCo’s decision time, that being forced on them by declining large car sales and a need to compete or get out. With the restyling of the Taurus along the lines of the Mondeo, Ford has a wonderful chance to bring performance into this line, something that is keeping buyers away. It wouldn’t take much... make the car about 250 pounds lighter, dial up the quality of the suspension to Autobahn standards, take that nice six speed tranny and let us play with the torque curve so we can actually DRIVE the car, tune the steering a touch... they are ALMOST there. Oh, and twin turbo options or even diesel…. all in the same car with a vareity of engine choices. Offer gas mileage consumption variations on it from 23 right on up to 45 mpg. Consolidate away, keep the Sable or let it go, I don’t really care, but just FOCUS on the core product so intently, from a design and customer satisfaction point of view, that it becomes an instant word beater. Ford can do it if they try... and this new platform, restyled and trimmed for 2010, perfected, can take them there if they want.
