Love my little car

Vehicle: 1998 Mercury Tracer LS 4dr Sedan

My car was a demo when we bought it. It has been a very good car and I plan on keeping it till the wheels fall off. It's fun to drive, and it has enough of power underneath the hood that I can have some fun with it. It has been a tough little car and as long as it gets me where I need to go then I will continue driving it.

i have owned 5 cars before, and this tracer is my first american car, i was a bit doubtful when my friend told me that this was a very reliable car, so i did some research and he was right! JD Powers and MSN both say the same thing! this baby just keeps going! the only major repair i've done is a $30 outer tire rod replacement plus installation.




Tracers are good

I have had my Tracer LS Sport for nearly a year, and I have no problems with it. It performs well enough for a car that isn't supposed to perform well. It gets me where I want to go, and does a good job of it.
