"We purchased our 2003 Sable SW in 2004 with 5K on it from a new car dealer supposedly turned in as first owner "really wanted a truck or SUV" and owner's nephew, a car salesperson, insisted uncle purchase this car. It was, to us, a handsome car with all the bells and whistles - excellent visibility. I had rented one earlier in the year when my old Taurus was in for repairs and drove the SW to Canada for a vacation. Though a bit nervous about the "story" behind this car and whether it was really a lemon, it turned out to be my favorite car - even made me sad turning it over to my spouse after we purchased a new 2010 Fusion (as I do a lot of commuting and wanted to ensure reliability). However it has been and continues to be fantastic - once, in the dead of winter when it hadn't been garaged and had sat unused for a long time, it had trouble starting, but AAA came and started it up - one of the tests the AAA guy was able to do on the spot resulted in his remark that this car had the best results for an (alternator?) that he had ever seen! He was amazed! I still love the car and am even sadder that we are selling it - to a good friend, BTW - (my son gave up his car in NYC and so we wound up with 3 cars so no longer need it). I will definitely miss it!"

"I have owned this car for 3 years. I purchased it at 100,000 miles. I haven't had to do anything except maintenance and new shocks. It has always started and has run like a champ! Would recommend to anyone."

"The car will not start right now. It is the factory alarm system something to do with the cylinder and module code keeps getting erased. I have had it diagnosed - They want from $800 to $1000 to have it fixed. I am not willing to pay that amount. It runs extremely well, when it runs. I have the transmission, the battery and the starter all replaced. It has a tune up and oil change a couple of months ago in which I have driven it very little since then. I have not driven the car much at all the entire time I have had it. For the most part with a 10 or 20 mile radius. The car is parked in Seat Pleasant, Maryland. Blue Book Value is over $4,000 - will sell for $3,000 to allow for the repair of the cylinder."

"Best car! I love it. It's the LS Premium and it's very nice inside. Makes you feel like your driving luxury. The price was great too...only $5,500 with only 60,850 when I bought it in late 2013. Gas mileage is..ok not the best but better than my parents Jeep Liberty they used to have. The car was only one owner it was taken care of. Good car in and out."

"This has been my mother's chief source of mobility for many years (since 2001-ish). She was the original owner; car had 10 miles on it when bought (per title deed). She is not the classic Little Old Lady from Pasadena, but worsening macular degeneration has limited her to trips to the store and not much else. Quick assessment reveals no dings in the body, internal leather-like fabric, engine turns right over; brakes, gearshift, steering mechanism are peppy. I believe it has a sun roof. Tires are practically new. I know this still sounds general, but please email for details."

"I have put over 200,000 miles on this car since I bought it. I love the pickup of the engine. With good care and maintenance, expect your Sable to last you a very long time. Gonna miss it!"
