1996 Mercury Mystique GS 2.0 Zetec from North America
My mechanic calls it a Mercury mistake, and I have memorized his phone number
Alternator: four of them, apparently there was no reason for this. They said "some of them just do this"
Something wrong with rear suspension, constant tire wear, no one knows why, I have taken it to several service centers.
Warped head: caused because, as they put it, "these engines naturally run hot (warm) and that will happen after this many miles."
Terrible car, buy it if you are good at getting cheap parts and can put them in yourself.
My mechanic calls it a Mercury mistake, and I see lots of other people seem to say the same thing.
Not exactly a comfortable car, but not the worst either.
Handling can be compared to that of a minivan; it really rolls into the turns.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
