"My parents bought this car from my dad's company, was a fleet car, at about 40,000 miles. My mom drove it for a few years and then I got it when I turned 16 with about 100,000 miles in 2006. Now it has a little over 230,000 (in 2014) and is still running great. This car has been super reliable, only needing minor repairs throughout the years. Never once had a problem with it starting. I always joke that this car is a tank, coming out with only minor scratches after all I put it through is a miracle! I just got a new car...2006 Ford Taurus...because I wanted something new but very similiar. I will never get anything else...especially after I have seen what my friends and family have had to go through with other vehicles."

"I purchased this car from a used car dealer in ohio in 2009. Its been nothing but a lemon from the 2nd year I had it. I have put over $5000 in it for sway bar...sway bar links, struts, outer tie rod...fuel pump twice, sensor app, idler pulley arm, radiator overflow, starter twice, battery...brakes twice in under 35000 miles. hub assembly..front end alignment abt once a year, all this in under 4 1/2 years. The car had 77, 000 when I brought it. I thought good deal for a used car with low miles. Little did I know. And, then, I thought, if I could keep it for antique....not likely. Came off assembly line a lemon if you ask me. No offense to lemons. Lol."

"I have never been a fan of Ford or Mercury vehicles, so was very surprised and pleased to find that this car has been so dependable and comfortable to drive. I have had it for a little over a year with no mechanical problems. It has a very smooth ride no matter if I am on a major highway or a gravel road. The motor runs very strong and has required only minimal maintenance. I have driven it daily, as well as for several long trips around the State. As a single woman, it is nice to know that I can depend on my vehicle not to break down when I am traveling. I would recommend this car to anyone. Plenty of interior room. Comfortably fits a baby seat and two toddler (booster) seats in the rear seat at the same time."

Pros: "Comfortable, reliable, powerful, gas mileage"

Cons: "transmission jerks at times"

"We have owned this car brand new in late '96 now its going very strong after driving over 24 vehicles after buying our Sable that should tell you something when a old vehicle outlast any new car had problems out most we owned but all thanks for my wife not wanted to give up the Sable she enjoyed the car so much because it was reliable and well maintained. I'm proud of this car on how it handles the snow so excellent use it for gas mileage since commuting 50 miles from where I live to work everyday it gets over 20 mpg not bad on a midsize car with a car liked this one saves lots of gas. The Sable is comfortable it drives just as a more top of the line vehicle has an powerful 24v DOHC V6 engine it beats Mercedes and Lexus off the road don't believe me its the truth or ask my wife ride is solid and transmission has minor issues at times whenever jerks going at 30 mph otherwise car is very reliable even three months ago finally passed inspection love our old Sable. Everything looks good from engine to interior being original its still holding on its last leg but think I will be able get another 30,000 miles out of it doing routine maintenance and tire rotations all at every 4k miles. We are never going to get rid of our Sable because its a great reliable car that has been trouble free over 18 years even owned newer cars that has been a money pit Day 1 but this Ford vehicle is just as smooth as don't know what a tough car worth the Kelly blue book price."
