1994 Mercury Topaz GS 4dr Sedan


Review

Not very reliable, like all fords. Too
much play in steering, bad mid-high
range power. Many problems to be
expected. My topaz at 86k has had new
brakes, new muffler, new trans, new
tires, new water pump. Low end torque
is great with the large cylinders.
Unfortunatly that means the motor
mounts will break quicker. Mid-high
range power is awful, which results in
everyone passing you because you can't
keep up. Power seatbelts break, power
locks fail, power windows stop working.
My mpg is awful. The suspension
eventually sags. This car is cheap, but
don't hang on to a topaz for too long,
because it will let you down.


Best Features

Radio is better than expected, smooth ride, comfortable interior, steering very easy(one finger) Power in low end. Good trunk space, easy to work on/repair. Parts are fairly cheap. Low cost(<1-4k)


Worst Features

Give it to another company and redo the engine(ford engines/trans are awful) A rear wiper would be nice.

Review

I have a V6, 3.0 L engine. Personally
I would rather have a 4 Cylinder
because it would be better on gas. I
don't need power. It is not a bad
car. So far I have had to seal up the
block heater because it cracked around
the plug and leeking. Both ball joints
replaced. Air conditioning went.
water pump replaced. My transmission
went The interier stuff on the door is
starting come off. Not really any rust.


Best Features

Radio is good enough for me, there is lots of space throughout the whole car trunk included, attractive car and doesn't rust much. I like that fact that I can see over the head rests. The whole back window defrosts not just some of it.


Worst Features

Better cup holders, more storage, bigger glove compartment.

1994 Mercury Topaz GS 2dr Coupe


Review

Alright, this wasn't exactly what I was
planning for my first car. Like most
others, I would like more cup holders.
And this thing should be more
powerful. 0-60 in about 18 seconds
isn't really that great when you need
to pick up speed quickly. The 5 speed
makes it fun to drive and the arm rest
for the shifter makes it comfortable. I
got this thing when it only had 61,000
K on it. And all I've needed fixed was
the muffler. If you just need something
to drive and don't care what people
think, it's the best in the world. Oh
yeah, parts are WAY too expensive. $600
for a new fender.


Best Features

The stereo. It's not that bad in mine. If the horn worked, that would be good too.


Worst Features

More cup holders, stiffer clutch, more power, rear defrosters that worked.

Review

Being a 17 year old male, I dreamed of
my first car being a Camaro with a big
block under the hood, or a
Datsun/Nissan Z. However I didn't want
to pay $500 a month. I settled for
a "94 Topaz GS. It's slow, loud, and
doesn't have cupholders (big problem
for a coffee drinker). All this aside,
I love my Topaz, because it costs me
nothing, it just rolled over 300,000KMS
the other day and it's still going
strong, with no signs of rust
anywhere. It's somewhat enjoyable
because it's a 5-speed, but that's
really the only fun. Basically the fun
side of me hates it and the practical
side of me adores it.


Best Features

Parts can more than easily be found at any scrap yard!! For cheap!!!


Worst Features

Cup holders, new stereo, stiffer clutch

Review

i have had this car for 2 days now and so far i love it. i used to have a ford
taurus and i like this car better. it is lighter and it has a little less power but
thats ok because i got my licence taken away for speeding tickets 6 months
after i got my licence witht the taurus. this car is easy to maneuver and it
corners well. there is a little rust under the rear licence plate but thats ok it
gets me to where i need to go.


Best Features

Worst Features

better stereo:)
