by Mike on May 3, 2007 Vehicle: 1992 Mercury Topaz GS 2dr Coupe
Bought new in '92 for about $8500, 136k mi. 27-30mpg, a/c retired 2yrs ago, severe hail damage, has rust and clearcoat is peeling, but I will be putting a new set of tires on it soon so I can drive it a few more years. Other than routine maintenance includes 1 clutch , 2 water pumps, 2 radiators, struts, 2 sets of tie rod ends. I would buy a new one today if they were still being made. Best auto buy I have ever made.

This is a better car than other people
think it is. The Topaz/Tempo carries a
bad reputation of a car for old
people, but I am 19 and I can tell you
that this car kicks ass ;).
Whith 160 lbs of torque and 140 hp,
and her 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 7.8
sec, this V6 will humiliate most of
the people who dare to challenge you!
This car runs smooth and only have
minor problems like drinking a lot of
gas!!! (about 13 liters for 100 km!)
Overall, this car is fun to drive, and
powerfull! (not the automatic
though!!!!). It runs smoothly without
any major problems (mine has 176 000
km with no major problem).
