Wonderful car for over 10 years by Sable's Friend on 08/25/2009. Trim: 1996 Mercury Sable LS, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I've owned this car for 11 years, it is by far my favorite ever. Bought it as a certified pre-owned 2 year old with 20K miles. It has been reliable, comfortable and attractive. It is now starting to rust and show signs of wear. I wish I could get the same thing all over again. Fabulous sound system with the JBL upgraded sound system. This care is NOT a clunker, and still gets good mileage. I am facing needing to replace the catalytic converter now and a few other things. Not sure what to do it had over 100K miles.
Cons: Absolutely nothing..wish it had a CD player. Casette player no longer works.
Overall review: Fabulous, I lucked out with this one.

Standard American Car by Daniel from Bellingham, Washington on 02/23/2004. Trim: 1996 Mercury Sable GS, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Predictable american handling. Tight turning radius. Doesn't feel as wide as it is. Cheap to insure. ABS works great.
Cons: The taillights. Transmission is clunky. Not enough legroom for front-seat passengers, especially on the right side.
Overall review: Nice car. Awful resale value which means it's a great car to buy used.

Pros: More passing power than you would expect.
Cons: Motor replaced. Trans. replaced twice. Interior and exterior style are horrible. I bought it because it was cheap.
