1997 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Best Features

Engine perfoms well. Handles great around corners.


Worst Features

Reliabilily. Access to engine is tight at best. Need to practically disassemble engine to get to water pump, power steering pump, etc.

Review

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.


Best Features

Very responsive 24 valve V6 engine. Slick-shifting 5-speed manual transmission. Many storage spaces.


Worst Features

Two sturdy cup holders would be better than the single flimsy one.
