Great car for a weenie roast..
Nothing...until it CAUGHT FIRE.
This was a fun, zippy little car that I loved dearly.
It was peppy in traffic and looked sharp.
It was a comfortable car and loved to roadtrip.
The wiring under the passenger side dash malfunctioned and the car erupted into full on flames. Both the driver and the passenger had to bail out of the car in the middle of the intersection when it started pouring smoke out of the vents. (made for some impressive news footage!)
After the car was deemed a total loss I receieved a letter from the Ford motor company notifying me of a recall for my car in 2001. The problem was that a sensor collected water over time and shorted the wiring out.. causing fires..FIRES! OH MY!
I miss having the only purple car in town.
My advice.. if you own a Tracer, make sure you have had the recall work done to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
