A handy wagon. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/21/2008. Trim: 1999 Mercury Sable Wagon LS, Owned 4 years.
Pros: The front seats are excellent, comfortable, roomy, and with a nifty center console. The car has a LOT of oomph for 200 hp, and a really smooth ride, but not floaty. The back seat has a ton of room, and there's a lot of space further back, too.
Cons: It seems that this car was designed for the elderly, who rarely have people in the back seat. The back seat is uncomfortable, unsupportive, has no headrests, and there are literally no pockets, pouches, boxes or cupholders of any kind to be found back there. Also, the power locks on the back doors crapped out. The handling is quite loose, and the pedals are touchy. This makes it feel like the car is driving itself.
Overall review: It's a great car. A bit hard on gas for a mid-size, but it's a BIG mid-size. It's really useful for road trips, and apart from the bare-bones-back-bench it's a perfect family car. It's really powerful when you need to pass or start at an intersection, too.
