Would never own another!

Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Mystique GS 4dr Sedan

My 96 has cost me over $8,000 to fix! Includes transmission, engine, timing belt pulleys, and cv joints! If you want to buy a new car, stay away from mystiques.




My mistake

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Mystique GS 4dr Sedan

When it runs, it is a pretty cool car to drive. I have had more problems with this car. I bought it in '06. In '07 I had to have the transmission rebuilt. In '08, I replaced the engine. This year, I have had to fix both timing tension pulleys, the valve gasket, and the cam. Iliked the car when I bought it. Now I hate it.




Super mystique

Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan

Purchased this car used in 2002, have driven it everyday approx. 30 miles per day since that time. I love it, no major defects,no problems. It's beginning to have things wear out, but that's to be expected. Wish I had another as good as this one has been.




Awesome car

Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan

Overall this has been an awesome car I know I just got it and I got it in a poor state and I still have a lot of work to do but, so far it's been relativaly easy to work on and parts are fairly priced.




Don't buy one

Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Mystique GS 4dr Sedan

I have only had this car for a year and it has been in the garage more than i have driven it. Everything that could possibly go wrong with a car goes wrong with this thing. The transmission is going for the second time and i just had it replaced not too long ago. So if you don't have money to waste don't buy this because it sure takes a lot of money to keep this on the road. it is the WORST car i have ever owned and i will never buy another ford.

A sharp buy

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Mercury Mystique GS 4dr Sedan

I now have 128,000 miles on my 24 valve 2.5 V-6 engine and since this car and engine were made by mazda they have been very reliable. This car drives like a more expensive car and holds the road as if riding on train tracks. Great acceleration combined by good fuel economy + above average construction. Very tight car which i intend to drive into the ground.

I now understand that Ford maybe recalling, if I can remember 1995 through 1996 Contours and Mystiques for I believe overhearing conditions? I should have said this never happened to any of my cars....
