1992 Mercury Topaz GS 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Favorite Features

No bling, just good economical, dependable transportation


Suggested Improvements

Seatbelt tracks, tie rod ends, better rustproofing, headlight lenses that don't yellow with age

1992 Mercury Topaz LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this mercury new in 1992, has never left us down, maintenence has been unbelievable small compared to the 1999 dodge durango we also bought new. Our mercury bills probably total $500.00 From 1992 till present, the durango already exceeds $4,000.Oo!!!! Topaz is very comfortable to drive, very nice dependable family car. The body still looks brand new after all these years and is not garage kept!


Favorite Features

This vehicle is still as stylish as when it was new and is very dependable!!! Gas mileage is an added plus!!!


Suggested Improvements

None for me.

1992 Mercury Topaz GS 4dr Sedan


Review

My time with this vehicle was rough. It was relatively old when i bought it but the mileage was low. Despite the low mileage there were many problems. The muffler needed to be replaced as well as struts, starter, serpentine belt, as well as a rusted bottom of vehicle. The interior was accebtable and somewhat comfortable. Also the automatic rear door locks failed and the driver side window did not go down.


Suggested Improvements

Automaticwindow controls with manual window controls as a backup.

theirs really not much to change about the xr5, interrior is alittle boxy but come on its a 11 year old car, i cant think of any other things that make this car bad, other than the head lights and tail lights, which imo could use some modifications, other than that they are great cars

Review

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).


Favorite Features

-Powerfull v6 motor -Sporty look of the 2 door XR5 -Radio easily upgradable -Very confortable - front AND rear seats -Well equiped : Electric doors and mirrors, Cruise control, AC, Power Steering. -A solid car!


Suggested Improvements

-A better looking front (lower) -Better fuel economy -Stiffer suspension -Bad odor in the car when driving at high RPM (when accelerating very fast)
