Dull design - but VERY reliable
By Steven on


1997 Mercury Tracer LS 4dr Sedan


bought the car for $2000 and had no problems other than recently in 2008 the rear springs/ shocks have all but given out forcing me to get a new car. it also idles hard with shaking and does not have any passing speed on highway, even with oil/filter/air changes ever 2000 miles, and new spark plugs, cables. paint was pealing off when purchased but has not gotten any worse since. never had a problem starting up in the dead of winter even after sitting around for about a month without a engin turnover. a bit dull on the overall design.

Best Features

great on gas, fluid changes are very easy to access, and very reliable

Worst Features

tape, or cd player would have been great when in locations that don't pick up radio, cruise control
