I bought this car for my wife in 2006 and she has driven it daily since. She has been very happy with the car and it seems to be holding up well. She has 126,000 on the odometer and just put a new set of michelins on the car...the second set. Not perfect ratings due to the spoiler paint fading unlike the rest of the body and sporadic windows not working in the AM, although the dealer fixed that problem when I paid the 900 for a major tuneup,. brakes, and a couple of small repairs. Yes, we are both very happy with the car and an sorry to see the three others are having problems with their Sables.
I brought my 2005 mercury sable in 2010, it ran fine until 2012, Aug the light came on, took it to Auto Zone, etc, it said the sensors were bad six of them. Pep Boys said they could not all be bad. The transmission went out and the car kept overheating, I would up paying for a new computer chip, about $700.00, had the heating repaired, $85.00, the transmission redone and ball joint changed $1900.00, $300.00 for tune up. This thing eats gas like 10 dollars every 2 days whether I drive it or not. I have the vehicle from hell now. The light came on and I kept trying to get it off. It finally went off. Now, I'm told I need to pay $80.00 to get the computer reset because of the transmission work. the gear shift indicater will not stay in gear.. Worst piece of _______ I have ever owned. Will not even say the word again.
My Mercury Sable is a p.o.s. Worst car I have ever owned. Bad gas milage, transmission, breaks, air. NEVER have I had to spend so much money in car repairs. Would not ever buy another FORD product.
We bought our 2005 Sable in August 2009. It had 52,000 miles on it. My husband uses it to commute to work 130 miles round trip - 5-6 days/week. We also use it on weekends because our Taurus has 150,000 miles on it. So we put 43,000 miles on the Sable in one year. The check engine light came on and the Ford dealer said it was the #4 cylinder - low reading and so it will cost $3750 to repair. We are not too happy about this. Has anyone else experienced this problem. I can't find any recalls on the engine.
