Summary:

So far really nice

Faults:

Nothing unusual.

The alarm seems to have his own life from time to time.

General Comments:

I bought the Sable for quite a nice price. Except for normal maintenance it's always running smooth and every time it's really nice driving it. The only bad thing I have so far is the alarm which seems to have his own life. After disconnecting the horn it doesn't bother me or my neighbors.

I think the engine is quite slow. I'm driving on LPG because the price of fuel is quite high here. Maybe that's the reason it's a little slow.

Another bad thing are the standard speakers. The sound is terrible flat. Problem solved with putting a sub woofer in it.

What's really perfect is the suspension. Very comfortable, but very good in sharp turns.

I think the dash looks pretty cheap. A lots of plastic, but that's quite normal for an American car I guess.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Faults:

The brakes are now sticking a bit. Think it just needs some regular maintenance. Not one serious issue or even slight problem encountered with this car :-)

General Comments:

Very nice, smooth car. Silent and powerful engine. For US car standards a large trunk. Very economic with the fuel (1 litre for each 9.5 kilometres).

No problems encountered, it's very reliable, even better than my previous 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee!
