Second Best New Car Ever Bought
For ride, comfort and size, the best new car I bought was a 1972 Buick Electra 225. Of course, with about 7 MPG, it wouldn't go very far these days (unless I hit the lottery) so I am very happy with this purchase. The 2008 Sable is very quiet, has good overall height to see the road and give me head room. Originally we were looking at the Lincoln MKZ but the head room was close (I almost touched the headliner) and when we saw and test drove the Sable, we decided to order one. Never regretted it so far.

2008 Mercury Sable
good car, poor transmission
<p>First, I love this car. It is styled and designed with safety and comfort in mind. Believe me, I looked before I bought! It started out great, good mileage and reasonable performance. About 1,100 miles in, the gas mileage dropped about 15% to an average of 15 MPG city and 23 MPG highway. The transmission started shifting hard, also, at 50 MPH if I would hit the accelerator to merge into HWY traffic, the Tach would go up to 5,500 RPMs and the car would just sit there, no acceleration. Mercury checked and could not find anything out of whack. During their investigation, I rented a Nissan Titan Pick Up, it shifted far more smoothly than my new Sable. Other than that, which I will continue to pursue, I love this car. It has power and comfort, the quietest car I have ever owned. I have owned many luxury vehicles too. It offered more goodies for the money than any other manufacturer, foreign or domestic and had the highest crash test ratings per IIHS and NHTSA to boot. I still have an open mind and hope this will improve with time.</p>
Outstanding family car
<p>I ended up with a new Sable when I rented a car from Budget for a two week family vacation. What a great car...I was really impressed and now getting ready to buy one. Ford nearly has a perfect car. While I would like to have some of the trim upgraded and I am not wild about the 6-speed automatic...one cannot select individual gears when going down a mountain...there is no other car in the $28 to $33,000 price range that comes close to the build quality, performance and room of this car!</p>
Best Family Sedan Ever.
<p>The new 2008 Mercury Sable is great it has all the features you could ever want at a price you can afford. The new Sable's 3.5L V6 has plenty of horsepower to move the car without any problems and the engine is good on gas so far on highway driving I have manage an excellent 29.8 mpg. I love the overall design of the Sable. It looks like a big Mercury Milan. The interior is comfortable with plenty of leg and headroom. The materials are great quality. I love the wood trims and the clock in the dash. I think it looks really classy. Also the Sable was rated the safest full-size sedan in America so I feel secure knowing my kids and other family members are always safe. I really could not ask for a better car. It has been great so far.</p>
