1992 Mercury Tracer LTS 4dr Sedan


Review

We bought our Tracer used nearly 5 years ago, and have driven it about 140,000 miles since then. It has occasional problems getting stuck in high gear when slowing at a stoplight or tollbooth, but the mechanic has never experienced the problem when they test-drive it. Otherwise it is very reliable, its only problems have been tire or battery problems, no mechanical failures. It has good pick-up on the highway (cruises happily at 70-75 mph), and is comfortable -- especially for a small person.


Best Features

Comfortable seats, seat belts are NOT automatic, 5-speed manual transmission, hand-operated windows, great fuel economy (better than 30 mpg even after 222,000 miles), efficient A/C.


Worst Features

Other than the "sticky" transmission, it's a great little car. We've never had any major repairs until now (it's 14 years old). I can't think of much I'd change.

Review

I have had so many problems with this car. I just got a list a mile long about whats wrong with it brakes, tie rod, fluid, alignment etc etc etc. Of course there's no way of knowing if its because the person before me didn't take care of it or not.


Best Features

Cute car, design is just fine.


Worst Features

Mechanics!
