1998 Mercury Mystique GS 4dr Sedan


My parents got this car for my sister when she was 17 as a first car. The first day she drove it, when she drove faster than 45 the car started to buck, the transmission was slipping. We've put more money into this car then we paid for it. Now I'm 17 (she's almost 21 now) and it's mine now. Not too fun to drive, it's very jerky when changing gears and it's really uncomfortable. My dad and I drove about an hour in it and we got out numb. After fixing it up a bit, she's running pretty good, but we still call it the Mercury "Mistake" because it is pretty much fail. The trunk for some reason floods when I open it up after it rains

Drove mine 400 miles today got out feeling fine not sure if you have medical issues or not. I'v put 35,000 miles one mine in 2 years. I'v hit a deer doing 75 had to replace a head light got rear ended at 35 never had to replace anything. I will agree with the transmission slipping mine was to to over heating in the summer and it was to low on tranny fluid that pretty much did it but i still drive it and will tell it dies.
