At current prices the Mercury Capri is an excellent buy
Headlight switch was replaced. The common fault with high operating temperature and low oil pressure is a minor concern considering that Ford had this problem with it's gauges from the very beginning. We have learned to live with the faulty gauges and enjoy the car for what it's was intended to be, an inexpensive, short distance fun automobile. Parts are getting hard to find, but with a little determination we have found what we have needed.
This car is fun to drive because it is quick for a 1.6 engine and well mannered for casual driving. My wife loves her little convertible and I enjoy driving it as much as my Honda Goldwing, especially when I don't want to wear a helmet. Gas mileage is great for the performance it has.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
