We purchased a used GMC YUKON from Elhart a couple of weeks ago. All of the employees were so welcoming and friendly. Our salesperson, Kalvin, was so helpful, knowledgeable and an all around nice guy! He took the time to help set up our free trial of OnStar, even though they had been closed for an hour. We never felt rushed or that we weren't a priority. Kalvin placed a follow up call and sent a thank you card! We can honestly say, he is the nicest salesperson we have ever dealt with!! We also had the privilege of dealing with Caryn Knapp. She's super nice! We would definitely recommend Elhart Automotive! Thanks again Kalvin!

Extremely dependable, a great highway cruiser w/mpg average 23-25. This is my 4th Sable and will easily last over 200,000 miles in my experience. Weakest link is the transmission. However, if you change fluids on time, tell her you love her once a week- she will love you back. Very high rating on dependability and safety. This is not your dad's Sable.

Best kept secret out there at the time..

I really love this car, especially now that I purchased better all season tires! I purchased this car with 19,000 miles for $12,000. It is completely loaded. I now have 45,000 miles on it and have not had any issues. It has a very strong v6 dohc engine that is fast on acceleration. The interior appointments look rich and classy. I also had a V6 Camry before this and I can truthfully say that for the price difference, the Sable is just as good - so far. I sold my Camry with 166,000 miles without any issues, hopefully the Sable will give me the same reliability, only time will tell.

My 2005 Mercury Sable is great! I got a fantastic car, and at a great price. Super value. It has an excellent ride, good performance, and handles great. Has 52,000 miles on it, only routine maintenance thus far (i.e. oil changes & wipers). Still has original tires and brakes! (Never has been in shop for repairs). It has great features for the money, is very comfortable for the family, and has large trunk space. I'm not sure I'll ever let it go. Highly recommend it if looking for a good, solid, used car.

Just having my accident a few weeks before, was looking and not buying but going to a 2004 Nissan Sentra to a bigger car was adjustment. Driving and sitting in the Sable was different than Sentra. Going from 15,900 to 13,900 and 15480 miles on it was a good deal. The leather seating and wood console was class and all around controls were easily on reach. The trunk was huge to me and its a smooth ride

This is my 2nd sable; the first lasted over 12 years before it finally quit. The 05 sable exceeded my expectations as far as interior design and build quality. It kind of reminds me of a luxury car. It may not have perfect gas mileage (I average around between 27-29 mpg), but other than that it definitely outclasses most of its competitors. This car deserves a lot more credit.

Nice car

Vehicle is very comfortable. I feel that I got a lot of car for the money. The insurance premium is very reasonable. I really like the trim on this vehicle, it doesn't appear cheap.

This car is fabulous! You could call it a sleeper. Sable is not well known by most people looking for a car in this class, but it sure beats all the imports. It has everything, looks, size, comfort, performance, price and quality. Ford has had alot of time to get the bugs out and refine this vehicle to where it is as near to perfect as you can get. Of course, then it has to be discontinued because it has been around too long and the name or the style isn't "cool" to some. I think it was way ahead of its time when it was first designed and is still a very nice looking, safe, comfortable and functional car. Better find one fast. Not many 2005's left. Don't get a "me to" import. Be different.

The 2005 Mercury Sable LS Premium is a very sturdy car with a great ride plenty of features to suit you witch includes power moonroof power drivers seat automatic headlamp system and keyless entry and much more i absolutely love the Sable i have had 6 since they came out in 86 a 86, 90, 95, 98, 01, 05 and they all are great cars and i think the 05 is the best yet with all the luxury features like wood/leather steering wheel and chrome rims and i like the style of the car and the taillamps and foflamps and headlamps and all the wood and chrome trims make the Sable a great looking car and at a great price the car was ove $27,000 and i was able to get it for $16,250 now thats a great deal

I'm not quite sure why Mercury is forced to sell these cars with such a high discount. The LS I bought listed a bit over $26,000 and I picked it up for $15,900. On occasion I drive it and find it to be a very nice car. As a family car it's just fine; as a second car it is superior. We've had no problems with it whatsoever nor did we have to take it in for those annoying little repairs that were not caught at the factory. Is it dated in style and ammenities? Perhaps, but it has exactly what my wife needs and then some. It is easy to drive, quiet, and has enough pickup to get around a slower driver. Instrumentation is well- thought out and I'm most happy with the value I got for my money.

okay but never again

The car is okay. It has the most features for the price and the dealer has been more than helpful. My car's engine light is on about once every two months. It chuggs along. No comfortable for trips over 170 miles. Not the ideal car to rack miles on and expect minimal maitenance. Does handle well in the snow but not the cold.

Great car

I actually have a 2003 but I realy enjoy this car. I recent moved and you would not believe how mucg it cargo it can hold. I drove it 750 miles filled to the brim with cargo and the ride was just as smooth as when it's empty and the gas milage was not bad either.

I love my Sable. It is the fourth one that I have leased and I would not hesitate to lease it again at lease end. It gives me everything I want and more. It is high on performance, looks good and not bad on economy. I can't say enough about the comfort I have in using the Sable. I love it, love it, love it.

best auto ever owned,

never had a problem with the Sable. it starts very good, the air conditioner is excellent, it cools instantly, the heater likewise it heats instantly, The pick up is excellent, the price is great I purchased the best model so it goes to show that you get what you pay for. I would purchase a Mercury or Mazda as my next new auto. I like the Mercury van that is made by Mazda, I had one for 2 years and got spoiled. I will purchase my next auto in 2006 which will be as I had stated.

I just bought this car a couple of days ago. The sticker price was over $27,000. With incentives, the purchase price was $16,999. This is one of the best values anywhere. This car is over $2,000 less than a Honda Accord (which I was getting rid of)or a Toyota Camry and has many more options than those cars. This car has leather, a power sunroof, climate control, power everything, heated mirrors and more. The fit and finish both inside and out is good. There is plenty of room for 5 adults. The V6 gets good milage and has plenty of power. The tranny is smooth and the ride is comfortable. We have an '03 Mercury Mountaineer and have not had any problems with the Mercury brand.

I love my 2004 Sable Wagon

I shopped for a while before selecting this car for the second time, and I'm glad I did. You heard me right, this car has significant improvements over my previous 97 Taurus Wagon which I also loved to drive. I've driven my 2004 Sable for 14,000 miles so far and haven't had a single problem with it, so yes I'm quite happy. For me, considering what you get, the price of this car made it a no-brainer. I probably would be interested in a Jaguar or a Volvo Wagon too, but only if I didn't have to pay all that extra money. I also think that the Sable is a great looking car, inside and out.

great car with lots of value.

I recently had a 93' sable and had no problems up to 130,000 miles. I now have the bigger V6 with 200hp and love it. It has plenty of around town pep. Very roomy inside but didn't opt for the leather because of kids. I would highly recommend a sable over a camery because you get more for your money, more room, more exctitng driving experience.

Had a 1996 Mercury Sable with the Vulcan engine and liked the car. Had no trouble with it for over 100,000 miles. Traded for a 2003 Mercury Sable with the Duratech multi-valve 200 HP engine (son not on insurance anymore), and love the additional power. Leather seats and all the bells and whistles. Great car and fun to drive. Have had 0 problems with it. Would recommend highly for a family sedan. Camry too spartan inside and much more money. Avalon compares favoribly but much much more expensive. A definite best buy.
