This vehicle has been mostly dependable. The good: Excellent handling around corners. Plenty of hauling capacity with the hatchback. Loaded with leather seats and all the optional accessories. Decent gas mileage. A very powerful v-6 engine. Front wheel drive. The bad: The engine is placed sideways in the car. This makes it very difficult to work on. 3 of the spark plugs are almost inaccessible. This car is 17 years old so I have replaced the air conditioner, starter, alternator. Overall This has been a solid car. If you work on your own car, you might want to avoid this one.
Story
I have traveled many miles in this car. I have crossed the Rocky mountains and drove on the Pacific Coast highway.
Pros
The engine is very powerful and high performing. The front wheel drive handles well in bad weather. The handling is excellent.
Cons
With age this vehicle takes a lot of work to keep running. Some of the electronics have stopped working as well. The engine is very hard to work on.

This vehicle is very reliable. It has served me and my family for 14 years and many many miles. We have taken it on two cross country road trips and yearly interstate road trips so it's current 150,000 miles have been well used. The main reason that we have kept it this long is that there are too many good memories attached to it and it feels like part of the family.
Story
We had a fantastic cross country road trip from Orlando to Los Angeles a few years back and stopped to see many sites. One of the best times of our lives.
Pros
Pro's for the 2000 Mercury Sable: It is very reliable and has never left us stranded. The cost for scheduled maintenance is very low. A very smooth ride even in its old age. Still looks stylish on the road among so many new model out there. Gas mileage is very reasonable for a car of its size in spite of its age.
Cons
Cons for the 2000 Mercury Sable: Because of its smoothness it is not very responsible. The air conditioner had to be serviced a few times.
