1998 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan
Have this car for over 2 yrs. Bought
it with 20k now has 50k. It's fully
loaded V6 standard. Only one problem
so far(replaced control arm).
Reliability exceeded my expectations.
Love the car and its performance and
handling. Can't find better used V6 4
dr sedan with stick shift for the
money (Audi, BMW or VW cost at least
twice as much). Downside, dashboard
fake wood is too cheap, worn leather
on the steering wheel, fake handbrake
boot leather and the way the
engine stalls at revs when shifting.
Interesting enough, in Europe
Ford Mondeo(same as Contour/Mystique)
was always rated way ahead of Accords
and Camrys in any way.
