1999 Mercury Mystique LS 2.5L V6
Really special. Fast!
Well, before I got the current Mystique, I had a '98 that I wrecked by falling asleep at the wheel. Ended up flipping the car at 6o MPH. I escaped with minor bruises and a bloody nose. Now it's really busted, but that's not the manufacturer's fault. My '98 also had the sticky trunk release.
This car is fantastic. I liked it so much that after I flipped the last one, I immediately sought out and purchased another one.
This new one has antilock brakes and Traction Control. Very advanced.
Handles like a nice dream. Highway entrance ramps that post a speed limit can usually be doubled without complaints from the tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Have you had problems with your dash panel curling up. If so what did you do to remedy it. Were you able to get any help from Ford Motor Co.? There was a recall on that, but I wasn't aware of it till too late. It had expired supposedly before my complaint. I am pretty much happy with my Mystique. A few problems, but nothing major. It needs rear struts at 85,000 miles and the A/C is slowly leaking freon.I'm told it will cost $700-$800 to repair A/C.Have you encountered any of these same problems.
I'd like to hear from you regarding your experiences with this little car. Over all I give mine a B+.You can e-mail me at bogeyman901 at Yahoo dot com.
Thanks for your time,
