by kurketh on Apr 3, 2003 Vehicle: 1991 Mercury Tracer 4dr Wagon
This little wagon is the second most
reliable car I have ever owned, next to
my '77 Camaro. It gets great gas
mileage in both city and especially
highway. It has plenty of room for
trips to Home Depot, or taking my two
Dobermans to the park. Of course,
don't expect to win any races (hah!),
and other drivers seem to take pleasure
in cutting you off.

I purchased my tracer in 1997, and had
problems with it almost immediately.
The biggest problem I've had was with
the transmission. I had to have it
replaced, which ended up being very
expensive even though my Dad was able
to do most of the work himself. I
wouldn't recommend this car to a friend.
Tracer receives a mighty makeover. Base notchback and wagon body styles share the Escort's base engine, but the up-level LTS receives a much more powerful Mazda DOHC engine that produces 127 horsepower.
