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.


Favorite Features

none at all


Suggested Improvements

discontinuing the car was a good enough improvement.

Review

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.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Excellent gas mileage and heater!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Picks up great for a 4 banger and the exhaust on this car sounds great, almost aftermarket to the untrained ear. the interior is easy on the eyes and comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

The transmission is questionable but, only time will tell.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

It is comfortable, just the right size and can be fun to drive


Suggested Improvements

make it more reliable. Better transmissions and so on.
