Review of the 1997 Mercury Mystique

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fun-to-drive, German-engineered Mercury offers great bang-for-the-buck. Either of the Mystique's powerplant work well with the 5-speed manual transmission, but the 2.5-liter Duratec is the one you'll want if you need to do much high-speed freeway driving.

  • Cons

    The tires on the GS are inadequate for this car's otherwise excellent handling capabilities. The rear seat is not big enough to hold two full-size adults comfortably.

  • What's New for 1997

    The addition of a Spree Package for the GS model and the inclusion of a tilt steering wheel and standard trunk light are the only changes for the 1997 Mystique.

Thought it was a good

Vehicle: 1997 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan

Bought used with 50,000 miles. Looked to be in goods shape. In less than a year had to replace the water pump (plastic impeller broke in two), power steering pump, puller idler arm, and some vacuum hoses. Now transmission is making noises and idle problem has cropped up that no one can find. Not my idea of reliability. Have cars with double the mileage with less problems.

Vehicle: 1997 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan

Consumer Reports Magazine has said bad things about this car recently, but my experience with it has been very positive. Having been driven 57, 000 miles, it still drives well and even it's styling has worn pretty well and it has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. Ford no longer offers a car in this size/price range, in this country, so when I replace it next year it will probably be with a car with a Japanese nameplate, since GM's offerings are lame and I am afraid of Chrysler's dependability and resale.
