High front seats create an odd driving position

materials...don't look luxurious but are price appropriate

Most reviews examined by TheCarConnection.com team of auto experts indicate that the 2008 Mercury Sable has a comfortable, well-assembled interior.

Automotive.com reports that Sable’s seats "are comfortable but not overly supportive"; ConsumerGuide notes "seats are comfortably supportive, but lanky drivers may wish for more rearward and downward seat travel." According to The Auto Channel, "the split-folding rear seat is easily wide enough for three people."

"With a 21 cubic-foot trunk, folding rear seats and a flat-folding right front seat, you can put a nine-foot-long object inside," reports Automotive.com. ConsumerGuide confirms that the "flat-floor trunk packs a lot of gear, helped by a boxy shape, large opening, and compact strut-type trunklid hinges." Edmunds notes the Sable has "plenty of storage areas and eight cupholders."

About the cabin, ConsumerGuide reports that it "makes good use of textured, soft-touch materials...they don't look luxurious but are price appropriate." Edmunds confirms the presence of "solid materials quality."

Automotive.com remarks that the "new 3.5-liter engine is extremely quiet and smooth at idle, and uses a pendulum mounting system that effectively separates its motions and vibrations from the rest of the car;" Edmunds says that "those who equate silence with quality should be pleased with the 2008 Mercury Sable's low amounts of road and wind noise."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
