The Mercury Capri XR2 is a quick, nimble, and most of all a fun car to drive! A major up and down side to the Capri is that there is/was not many of them on the road so finding parts can be a problem. After 150,000 miles the engine, transmission, and turbo are still in great shape! (Although the clutch was replaced at 135,000 Miles) Watch for cracked or distorted rear windows on the soft top as they can be expensive to replace. Some electrical system problems can arise (Blower motor, MAF, headlight motors) Rubber gear shift linkages are prone to wear at or around 100,000 miles. (5 speed) Keep in mind that this is a sports car with McPherson strut up front and it will ride like a tank!

I bought this car through Quality Auto
(Ocala, FL) after my Saturn SL2 was
totalled in an accident. I have had
some minor wiring issues with the car
(due mostly to the previous owner's
installation of a premium sound system,
speakers, et al.). Otherwise, this car
has been great in performance and
reliability. I have extreme difficulty
in finding parts/accessories as Ford no
longer manufactures said parts.
