'94 Tracer has the best air conditioning unit . With my fav Lincoln/ Mercury service mechanic.. The car is a real gem. The back seat can lie flat and combined with the trunk.. there isn't anything you can't move. i've carried D J equipment.. Christmas trees..glass desks.. yukka trees..6 ft speakers..10 foot lighting..hd tv.. treadmill.. etc... that a friend with a Caddy couldn't.

I've owned this car for a year and put 12k miles on it with no problems. 138k, 5MT and I average 33mpg in mixed driving. It does burn a qt of oil every 1500 miles. Easy car to work on and find parts for. Driving position, visibility, and controls are comfortable, but seats lack lumbar support. Car is very slow, but fun to drive with the stickshift. Brakes are ok, steering response is good. Plenty of online info available w/r/t Escorts. I have two small rust spots starting on panel edges, but the paint and interior are in great condition overall...no peeling paint or torn fabric. Three carseats will BARELY fit across the rear seat. Great car overall...I'd absolutely buy it again.

I love everything about this car. It is a great car to drive and really reliable on gas. I kept my gas for a whole month and then only had to pay about $10. So, it is really reliable. I never had to do any kind of repairs on it at all.

I have owned this vehicle since it was
new. The only mahor thing that has
ever happened to it was when the
timing belt broke on the interstate.
In fact, that wouldn't have happened
if we had replaced it when we should
have. In a time of outrageous
gasoline prices, the Tracer gets me
back and forth to work on about $10 a
week. The air conditioner is still
ice cold, the brakes have only been
replaced once. I love this car and
would definitely consider another
purchase of a Ford product.

Nothing but a disappointment from day
one! Handled okay, had okay gas
mileage, but burned thru transmissions
like a teenaged girl goes thru
boybands! Parts were expensive and even
when under warranty, the dealership
never could fix it right. I went thru 2
engines, 3 heater cores, and 4 (count
em four!!!) transmissions. Engine had
no power or pickup (either of the two!)
and I will not be buying another
Mercury / Ford ever again!

Economical car that drives/corners well. Fast pick up, good turn radius. Sporty design for a sedan. Expensive parts wore out sooner than expected for amount of wear and tear on engine. Comfortable interior. Good value for all extra features, cruise control, automatic windows/locks, sunroof, a/c
