Review

When I bought this car on auction with
hi mileage 120K and for only $1500 I
expected problems. But so far it
seems that everytime I turn the key
something else goes wrong. Right now
I Have already doubled the ammount I
payed for it in repairs and still have
a transmission problem and oil leak I
have to force my shifter to get it in
gear and i have a short in the in the
line for my turn signals and my AC has
gone out.


Best Features

The car is small but comfortable.


Worst Features

Build it to last.

Review

This car and year had a lot of recalls.
I have used this car for many trips
and have driven it all over the place
with no problems. I warm it up in the
winter and make sure the oil is
always changed regularly. While it is
not powerful (4 cyl), it has always
been reliable and has a pretty
smooth ride.


Best Features

New CD system, cruise control, power wondows/locks


Worst Features

It should have more acceleration power.

Review

Purchased car from dealer used as a
fleet vehicle with 24K miles. Car ran
great up until '03 with barely 90K
miles transmission completely failed!
Tranny man tells me "I see alot of
these things with exactly same
milage... transmission is full of weak
parts" Had him put in used mystique
tranny with 60K on it. Only got 12K
more miles off it. Ford has lost me for
good. I will stick to Honda/Toyota from
now on.


Best Features

Interior very comfortable on long trips.


Worst Features

Ford Motor Company: design and build a decent transmission that will last 200K miles!

1998 Mercury Mystique LS 4dr Sedan


Review

The car has nice amenities, but has
been troublesome. It's been in the
shop more times than most other cars
I've owned. Though not a big car, it's
not easy to park especially in reverse.


Best Features

I like the power and handling.
