Ostensibly, the more luxurious counterpart to the Ford Taurus mid-size sedan. Was initially conceived as a more stylistically intriguing option for family sedan buyers who were dissatisfied with the malaise of the segment and thought the Taurus too mainstream for their tastes. The first and second generation Sable offered a futuristic-looking low-wattage light bar between the headlights in place of a traditional grille , modest fender skirts for aerodynamic appeal, and a wrap-around rear window arrangement that reduced blind spot size. Over the years, it became increasingly less distinguished from the Taurus and inevitably met its fate as it failed to hold on to the market segment as anything but a more costly Ford.

A freaky, hideous-looking piece of shit that looks like a spider and drives like a snail. The newer Sables have been re-designed to look like something your 15-year-old son bought with spare change he found under your sofa.
The station wagon version of the Mercury Sable is truly the nail in the coffin.

Basically the same thing as a ford taurus. The only parts that actually say mercury are the grille, trunk, and steering wheel. It supposedly has more luxury options than the taurus.

Like the taurus, and many other ford vehicles, they are a sad excuse for a vehicle. When equipped with the right engine, the cars will last almost 150,000 miles. They are known for blowing headgaskets on the 3.8 liter engine, and almost every single one on the road has had some sort of transmission problem.

For this reason, there is a immense number of them in the junkyard, making finding parts easier. Not that you would want to fix one in the first place
