1994 Mercury Tracer 4dr Sedan


Review

'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.


Favorite Features

Air Conditioning.. the best.. and the back seat lies flat and combined with the trunk.. you can move anything.. esp. longer items.. that other cars can't.


Suggested Improvements

putting in a disc player.. but maybe just a sirius.. is about it.. since it came with a tapedeck.

1994 Mercury Tracer 4dr Wagon


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Leather-wrapped steering wheel, alloy wheels, gas mileage, ease of DIY repair/maintenance, roof rack, cargo volume, natural resistance to speeding tickets.


Suggested Improvements

Speedometer breaks ALL THE TIME in these cars. Stock stereo is lousy. No cruise control or foglights.

Review

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.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

I like the leather wrappes steering wheel, spoiler and aluminum wheels (which comprise the "trio" package). The 1.9 liter engine runs smoothly, and shifting gears on the manual tranny is still fun! When I clean the car up and spray dressing on the tires, it still looks new!


Suggested Improvements

Judging from my experiences with my Tracer, I can't think of any improvements that one could make!

Review

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!


Favorite Features

The radio was kinda nice when the tape deck actually worked!


Suggested Improvements

RELIABILITY! MERCURY TECHNICIANS THAT ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING!
