Comfort but Unreliable
By rockknocker on
Vehicle1996 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought used for daughter and she drove
it for(6)years 30k miles. Very good
fuel economy,30+ mpg. Car had some
neglect, ran out of oil and driven 300+
miles until engine seized, then with
only two quarts of oil it was driven
another 200 miles. With 90K miles
engine runs fine and does not burn
oil! A very comfortable car. Repairs:
Auto transmission-$1800, CV Joints,
ball joints, brakes twice, front wheel
bearing, rear slave cyl., two shift
cables, replaced power antenna, power
door motor, backup light trim seals
leaked into trunk. Seems like a lot of
repairs, but in all honesty, some could
be related to a side impact/car wreck.
Best Features30 mpg, fuel economy and comfortable to drive long distances. Great trunk space!
Worst FeaturesFix the auto transmission and shift cable design and this would be a fine car. Motor has always idled rough at stops, dealership says thats the way a 4 cyl.idles, could use some improvement.
