1994 Mercury Topaz 2.3L 4 cylinder. from North America
Good to get where your going, but not much more
Power steering wrong when I got it. Ignored it until I was filling up the power steering reservoir twice a day then replaced a $40 line.
Rear view mirror fell of randomly while I was stopped.
Reverse is on the fritz.
Emergency brake doesn't work anymore.
Gas mileage is bad for a 4 cylinder. I get no power and I mean NO power... and I still just get about 24-26 miles per gallon.
My first car was a V8, then a V6 now with this a 4 cylinderI can't keep dropping. This car gets the worst mileage out of the three and is so underpowered compared to the others I want to cry. On the up side it is reliable and is a great point A-B car. Just don't expect to win a race, get looks (the good ones anyway), or be able to pass...safely.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
