1996 Mercury Mystique GS from North America
This car really frustrates me
74000 new tires.
77800 car begins to randomly stall.
80000 driver's side auto. window motor begins to fail.
82500 air conditioning vents on driver & passenger side (not center) fail to work.
85500 gas tank lid becomes very difficult to open (push button in car works after about 40 tries)
87500 new tires...again.
*Car gets poor gas fuel economy for its size
*cupholders are too small and easily breakable
*seats are uncomfortable
*too many gadgets/features in the car are prone to failure
Is semi-reliable once you get it out on the road.
Gets decent mileage on interstate.
Handles decent in snow and poor weather.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Oh I forgot to mention in my review that the trunk leaks and that 2nd into third gear is now a really hard shift.

I have a 1996 Mercury Mystique GS, Car would stall while I am still driving it. I had it in the shop for tune up. All the plugs were cleaned. Car would still stall. Iam afraid of getting hit. I can't afford to buy another car at this time.
