1997 Mercury Mystique GS 2.0 Litre from North America
Not a bad car
Had to replace all four tires and am going to have to get new tires.
Had to replace an O2 sensor at about 100,000.
Had check engine light come on a couple of times. A piston had misfired each time. Has not done this for last 10,000 km.
Front doors are getting hard to open. Have to really pull up the handles. I am afraid that one of these days one is going to break.
Broke the glove box level when opening it one day. I did not do anything different than any other time. It just broke.
The car is not overly peppy. Being 4 cylinders has something to do with it, I'm sure.
The car has not been too bad overall.
The headrests are not the most comfortable and the seats do not recline without winding a wheel. This is the worst way to lean back a seat; especially for long trips where the passenger is going to go to sleep.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
