Mercury MISTAKE, not Mystique!

Cigarette lighter & clock don`t work
Tape player doesn`t work
Driver side headrest broken
Passenger side door handle broke off in my hand
Cold weather comes & the doors freeze shut!
Both back doors squeak loudly when opened
When trunk is opened, water pours out from the turn signal compartment, if it raining that day
This car has never seemed to have the power it should.
In the shop more than it's on the road.
I will never buy another Ford or Mercury product!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Thought I was reading the story of my 1997 Mercury Mistake! Only thing different is that my clock and door handle are still working. That is just about the ONLY difference! Can't believe your drivers headrest is broke too. Shame on Ford for this car!!
Deja vu! We bought a used 1995 Mercury Mystique for our son last August. It had 110,000 miles on it. It had a broken headrest, too, but we found one at a salvage yard. The thermostat always runs hot, and the clock doesn't work. In December, we had to have the timing belt and tensioner fixed. Earlier this month, the springs and struts needed to be replaced. A week later, the car died--it's the timing belt and tensioner again! While I love my Mercury Villager, my husband keeps pointing out that it was really made by Nissan. This will be our last Ford or Mercury product.
