Cons: Brakes arent great,kind of noisy AC and heating
The Bottom Line: I would defianately recommend this car to anyone looking for an amazing value.

This is the first car I have ever personally owned, it is still the car I drive today. When looking for a car I had three main priorities: look, price, and safety. The car passed all three of these tests with flying colors. It is extremely ... read more

Pros: Strong Acceleration and Excellent Anti-lock Braking

Pros: Comfortable and sleek
Cons: doors stick
The Bottom Line: This car is great for a family and we're very pleased with it!

We bought this sedan as a second vehicle and are very pleased with it. At first we were looking into SUV's but the prices were high and didn't seem in proportion the the features. We decided we could get a loaded sedan and save a few bucks. ... read more

WONDERFUL

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: SMOOTH RIDE, GREAT GAS MILEAGE, GREAT ENGINE PERFORMANCE, VERY STYLISH
Cons: TERRIBLE RADIO QUALITY, CHEAP GRADE OF LEATHER SEATING
The Bottom Line: Great styling, comfortable ride, great gas mileage..

This car is a great handling car. It is a smooth riding car and has great gas mileage. The DURATEC V6 with the dual overhead cam gives more power than needed for a 6 cylinder. I am getting 24.5 mph and use 87 gas. The motor is quiet, ... read more

A Best Buy!

by
Feb 28, 2002 - Updated Mar 7, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: It's fast, it's flashy, it's fairly priced...it's flawless!
Cons: External appearance could be more unique
The Bottom Line: The Sable is truthfully the best car for the money. Combine a classy large car with a sleek, somewhat sporty, quick car and you have the Sable!

Unlike some of the other reviewers of this car... I actually own one. So my opinions stem not only from a first impression, but from a few happy months of ownership and maintenance. Why I Bought a 2001 Mercury Sable: My father is ... read more

2001 Mercury Sable LS

by
Jan 9, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Stylish European looking exterior; gentle ride/suspension; excellent maneuvering.
Cons: Although interior is comfortable, it could be more appealing.
The Bottom Line: Other than a few needed refinements in the interior, the 2001 Mercury Sable is definitely one of the best buys for the money.

The exterior of the Sable is very breathtaking. It is very stylish with an European flair. Many have complimented my car on how luxurious it is......and some have even asked if it is a Jaguar (because of it's rear end shape). When this vehicle was ... read more

Good value, but sore rear end!

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Elegant exterior, responsive Duratec engine
Cons: Cramped, uncomfortable interior
The Bottom Line: Poor initial quality. Stay away if you are taller, larger person.

I have leased for 6 mos. now the 2001 Mercury Sable LS Premium. It is equipped with the upgraded Duratec engine (a must as compared to std. engine), leather trimmed interior, and the upgraded sound system with window-mounted tweeters and armrest-mounted ... read more

The all new Plain Jane Sable - Reviews both Base and Duratec V6's

by
Nov 28, 2001 - Updated Jul 28, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Somewhat smooth 200 horsepower Duratec V6 engine, refined interior over its predecessor.
Cons: While the previous Sable had maybe "too much style" this year it's lacking.
The Bottom Line: Want a family sedan you can afford? The Mercury Sable is right a safe go, but avoid the 3.0 OHV vulcan V6, Just ask your dealer.

There really isn't anything too exciting about the 2001 Mercury sable. It comes standard with an anemic 3.0 153 horsepower OHV V6, but is also available with the semi-smooth 3.0 DOHC Duratec power-plant. Despite the 2001 Mercury sable's ... read more

Strong American Made Luxury

Oct 25, 2001 (Not Yet Rated)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Price, style, service ability, size.
Cons: Wind noise, no memory seats, sunroof motor access panel is annoying, quirky interior lighting.
The Bottom Line: Excellent value for this US made auto, power, style, functionality, and dependability.

After being driving two German autos for last 10 years I was determined to try "American Made" again. The styling of the 2001 Sable LS and it's newly available Spruce Green color (light silver green) is what made me take a second look. No other car in ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Comfortable ride, great acceleration, very good handling, and very solid
Cons: LS requires 6 disc CD-changer in trunk, minor wind noise into cabin
The Bottom Line: I would certainly recommend this car to anyone looking for a full size family sedan that is fun to drive with room to spare. A terrific value.

Back in 1987 I purchased the first version of this car, the Ford Taurus, which was a good, reliable family sedan. The 2001 Sable LS Premium was leased new in December 2000. My initial impression was one of familiarity with the Taurus, but the current ... read more

2001 Mercury Sable GS

by
Aug 21, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Attractive Styling. Very Good Exterior Fit and Finish.
Cons: Disappointing Interior. Base 155hp 3.0 V-6 Seems Weak.
The Bottom Line: The Sable is an attractive car with good exterior fit and finish. However, the interior is hardly as nice as the exterior. Go for the 200 hp 3.0 V-6.

My 1994 Cadillac Deville was rear-ended by a woman in a 2000 Buick Century two Thursdays ago. I rented a 2001 Mercury Sable GS from Enterprise while my Caddy was being repaired . This is my experience. The car I rented is finished in Silver ... read more

The Bottom Line: This is a great car for the price.

for three weeks as a rental car while my truck was in the shop. Overall, I'd say that driving the car was a great experience. It had nice acceleration and a smooth ride: 80 MPH felt no different than 40 MPH. There were a couple of ... read more

Pros: Solid car, good price, quiet ride
Cons: Not the most advanced car you'll find in its class
The Bottom Line: A solid dependable mid sized car thats short on frills but high on the important things.

My wife recently leased a 2001 Mercury Sable. She traded in her 1996 Ford Probe. We have a 10 week old and the Probe was not practical. The Sable is a solid car. I was quite impressed with the 24V DOHC engine - it really moves. The car was ... read more

I bought this car in 2001 and have 166k on it. The low cost of ownership, ride, excellent features, great gas mileage, the car can't be beat. Built far better then any Japanese car in it's class. Only problem is Automotive Media is in love with ... read more
