"completely reliable, gas wasn't too touchy, braked like a charm, a great first car for someone going off to college (large trunk and large backseat). stereo system is AMAZING! the only reason i would sell this car is for one with less miles. 400 miles on full tank!"

"I BOUGHT MY 1999 MERCURY SABLE LS BRAND NEW OFF THE SHOWROOM FLOOR COLOR GOLD WITH TWO TONE BROWN LEATHER INTERIOR. I HAVE TAKEN CARE OF THIS CAR LIKE IT WAS MY BABY. I ADMIT I AM AN OLD CAR ENTHUSIAST NUT. I CHANGE THE OIL EVERY 2000 MILES PERSONALLY AND FAITHFULLY,THE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER PERSONALLY EVERY 2 YEARS AND GET THE ANTIFREEZE CHANGE AT THE CONVIENIANT JIFFY LUBE WAY(MUCH EASIER THAN DO IT YOURSELF)EVERY 3 YEARS AND ALSO PROFESSIONALLY DETAILED EVERY YEAR BESIDE MY WEEKLY PERSONAL HAND WASHES IN THE LAST 15 YEARS.NOTHING MAJOR EVER WENT WRONG, ALWAYS STARTS UP RIGHT AWAY, STILL TO THIS DAY!! CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WENT ON MAYBE 2 TIMES IN ITS LIFE.RUNS UNBELIEVABLE WELL,GOOD LOOKING,SOLID CAR,LOVE IT!!! BURNS GAS WHEN DRIVING CITY,THE ONLY NEGATIVE ABOUT THIS CAR,BUT REMEMBER IT IS A FAMILY SEDAN,SOLID CAR,NO RATTLES EVER!! SO WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT! NOTHING IS 100 PERCENT!!"

Cons: "spent over $2600 in repairs need 2k more at least"

"car is worth more in parts than as a running machine at 98,000 miles... ive never owned a car that needed transmission before 100k miles... to pass emisions test [ie. no service engine soon lights or codes] the dealership had to take the car immediately to emisions for me, and the check engine light came on 4 days [and over $1600] later... this is probably the last ford manufactured vehicle i will ever own"
