Sweet six

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Mercury Mystique

A one owner car purchased late 2006. Has one of the sweetest V6 engines I've known and terrific mileage at 20 city, 36 hwy. 4spd Auto sometimes seems soft, but no problems. Wiring harness had been replaced, oxy sensors in 04. Passes smog well above avg. AC has slow freon leak- when freon fully charged mpg drops to average 17/25. Without freon mpg goes back to 20/36 averages~ a "mystique mystery". Engine and trans mounts [rubber/liquid filled] had to replace together. Smoothness returned to like new, hope they last another dozen years. Overall a joy to drive, must be well maintained to stay that way. Excellent European style tuned suspension.




Has been a good car

One owner car. Low mileage well taken care of over the years. Just spent about $800.00 in repairs. Runs good and looks good.




Great until it blew

I bought this car with 90,000 on the clock. It performs well and the 5 speed/6cyl combo is nice. The radio commited suicide, but it wasn't that good anyway. The real problem was the engine lost oil pressure and blew up 3 months after I bought it and it was inspected before I bought it. I found an engine with 27,000 and it has done well since then. The engine and install were close to what I paid for the car to begin with but still is a good commuter car and would be hard to replace even with the added expense. Ford needs to concentrate on building cars that will go 200,000 miles. The engine/trans sits on an easy to remove sub assembly, my main gripe is parts are expensive.




Stray away...

Ok, bought this "gem" 3 years ago...within 2 weeks of having it, the tranny went on mine. Had to have this thing in and out of the shop. Had to replace belts numerous times...try three in 6 months. I know that this is a 10+ year old car...but come on...cannot wait to get rid of this hindrance of a car...oh, check engine light comes on all the time too!!




Don't recommend past 80,000

Very expensive to replace. After 80,000 miles it just gets worse. Nice pick-up, and good gas mileage. But you will spend more on maintenance than value.
