1998 Mercury Mystique from North America
Worst car ever built, stay away
Had to purchase a battery about 5 weeks after I bought the car.
Electrical short in turn signal causing it to flash madly.
4 months and 1 week after I bought car, the transmission breaks.
Both front wheel bearing shot.
Both front rotors shot.
Air flow heater replaced.
Left front joint boot replaced.
At one time whenever I left the radio on and shut the car off, the radio would not shut off.
Sometimes it is difficult to unlock car with key on drivers side and sometimes the key gets stuck in the ignition.
The car stalls for no apparent reason.
This car is the worst car ever made.
I found out that the transmission was replaced before I bought it. After I spent $1500 to replace transmission, it went again. The transmission place fixed the problem, but it still runs terrible.
The check engine light always comes on. After I get something fixed it goes away for a week or so then comes back.
If something breaks on this car, it will be expensive to fix.
There is one battery offered for this car and that ran me over 100 dollars.
The blinker problem was resolved by pulling the lining away from the light so it did not rest on the wires.
I am sure I am forgetting something.
I have owned this car now for 5 months and 2 days. I paid $6000 for it and put in about $2500 more in repairs. The sad thing is, the check engine light came on today and I don't have any more money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
