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