Good ride for the money
Pros: Comfort and drivability
Cons: The instrument cluster. I can't see the mileage indicator - a mistake in design.I have owned Lincolns for many years and this is my first ownership of a Mercury since the Sable days two decades ago. The car is very comfortable, with good cushioning in the seats. The mileage is very satisfactory and the quality, while not matching that of the Lincoln MKZ (for many thousands more) is acceptable. I recommend this car.
A Beautiful Sleeper
Pros: Excellent driving dynamics, comfort and build quality
Cons: adjustable pedals should been standard given that there is not a telscoping sterring wheelThe styling of the Mercury Sable has been derided in the automotive press for looking like a big Volkswagen Passat. That's a bad thing? Not in my book. I've owned my 2009 Mercury Sable Premier for about 6 months now and I find more to love about it every day. It is an understatedly elegant car that is comfortable, performs well, is surprisingly quick and agile and offers a lot of versatility given the huge trunk and fold flat seats. On trips it returns 30 mpg and with a 20 gallon tank you can really put the miles away. It gets outstanding safety ratings thanks in part to the fact that it is based on Volvo S80 architecture. Most people have no idea what kind of car this is - which I kind of like. It's 'stealthy' but when you hit the gas pedal the 6 speed automatic transmission kicks right down and the 263 Horsepower 3.5 liter motor responds with authority. The interior is quiet, the heated leather seats are comfortable and supportive and the Sync system is pretty cool too. Overall I am very impressed and I would not hesitate to recommewnd the Sable or it's sibling, the Ford Taurus.
Detroit Steel was the best
Pros: luxury with sport handling
Cons: no convertablesThe Marauder is the best car I have owned. It has had work done on it and performs as such. The fact that 'global warming' is a fraud has more people asking about the large black sedan. We have 300 years of oil, coal and naturasl gas available to us in this country. It is time to put Al Gore in jail for profiteering fraud and drill and mine ourselves; cleanly, into a higher life style and job market for us and the entire world. All the while, since carbon is a friend of plants and therefore of man, concentrating on real pollution issues and keeping America clean and pristine; while enjoying Detroit Steel.
Pros: sync & serius radio
Cons: nothing about it that I don't likeBest vehicle I have owned. That includes Cadillac, Buick, plymouth,and others. Did anyone figure the cost-equivalent of electricity vs gasoline. Electricity is now equal to $3.50 per gallon and with cap and trade will go to something in the range of $5.50 per gallon.,
Pros: The trunk--I haul large and heavy containers. You can actually put such things in this trunk easily.
Cons: I really have no dislikes.
Advice: Expect all the power a reasonable driver needs, suprisingly good fuel economy for a large car, and a good comfortable ride.I did not test drive the car, I simply bought it. I previously had a 2004 Grand Marquis which I traded away. I liked that car, so I found my 2010 on the Internet, closed the deal on the phone, and bought the car.
Cons: Mileage could be better
Advice: Get one...........Owned one for 6 months now and am highly pleased. I wanted to buy a Ford product since they did not take any taxpayer money...So glad I chose the Merc Milan.........
Pros: Engine diagnostics that tell you how efficiently you are driving, Sync
Advice: Strongly consider this oneOutstanding car. Has the comfort of a much larger car, but fuel economy is great. Can regularly get better than the posted milage once you get the hang out of maximizing the elctric motor. Sync feature is without comparison in other vehicles.
