2008 Mercury Sable review and picture


Even though it has gotten its share of reviews from all of the major car review sites, the 2008 Mercury Sable still barely sticks out from the line up of vehicles being marketed in the 2008 model year, and it is doubtful that much will happen to change that. Taken from the former Montego, the 2008 Sable has redesigned and improved, so perhaps for the coming model year it will fare better in the buyer’s eye, because it does deserve to do so.

The Good:

  • spacious back seat
  • roomy trunk
  • great job on crash tests
  • ride is balanced
  • good handling
  • comes with option for all wheel drive

The Bad:

  • bad options for stereos

The Sable isn’t a brand new name for Mercury, but it has been out of sight for a while, and comes back in the 2008 model year as a rehash of the 2007 Montego. There’s nothing wrong with that, though, because many of the Montego’s faults have been corrected this time around, making for an excellent car. The engine packs more power, the interior is more silent, and the suspension has been done over, as well.

A full size sedan, the 2008 Mercury Sable comes in two trim levels, base and Premier, and with front wheel or all wheel drive. The base level of the 2008 Sable comes with plenty of features standard, including:

  • 17-inch wheels
  • cruise control
  • auto dimming rear mirror
  • leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • full power accessories

The Premier trim level is the final step up for the 2008 Mercury Sable, and adds the following standard:

  • 18-inch wheels
  • memory system
  • leather upholstery
  • front seat heaters
  • dual zone automatic climate control
  • six-disc CD changer

Only a handful of options are offered, but they are quality ones, and it should be considered that the model is so well equipped standard. Some of these options are a moon roof, satellite radio, and a navigation system.
