Tracer ls (4 spd auto)

Vehicle: 1999 Mercury Tracer LS 4dr Sedan

Bought as a repo for $500, at the time it was 3 different colors and had almost no muffler left. Had the car for over 2 years, and stuck a ton of money into it, but overall its probably the best car for the money I've ever owned. Acceleration sucks, ride quality is below average. Love the blue color and styling. Averaged about 33 mpg, once got 42 mpg on the hwy. Although it defined the word "beater", the car served me well through 2 WI winters, and the h*ll of a teenage boy driver, and it will be missed

This was also my first car...I've had it for about four years now. I agree with all of the other positive reviews. This car has been almost totally reliable and have had few and far fetched problems with it. Overall its been a great car!

Ugh, this car

Vehicle: 1999 Mercury Tracer GS 4dr Sedan

Ok, i've had this car for a few years now, engine wise, short of alternator and serpentine belt, no problem. Gets good mileage on highway, starts when ye need it to, maybe a little grumpy about it in the winter, but starts. body wise, problem problem problem, to the point of safety issue, and i mean brakes. My emergency brake gets fixed (at different garages) a couple times a year, it hangs up, locks the tire, breaks, etc. Most recently my other brakes froze up, causing yet another expensive repair. If you have a thousand a year to spare to keep this car in safe running condition, go for it.
