1996 Mercury Mystique 2.5 Duratec from North America
A great car for the price (paid $5000 Cdn)
Nothing has gone wrong for me to this point, and the records from the previous owner show only a EFI computer replaced under warranty, brake rotors, muffler, and tires.
The 2.5 V6 has more than adequate power for a car of this size, and runs very smoothly.
Fuel mileage, if driven in a civilized manner is quite respectable. We got 8.5 liters per 100km over the last 3 days and 1800 KM.
The 10 way power drivers seat, with leather upholstery, is very comfortable.
The car handles and rides VERY well. I compare it, as far as ride performance and handling, to the old Rover 2000TC. A 4 door sports car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
