1980 Mercury Bobcat Review
Great Car Overall — It just ran and ran and ran until we got tired of it. I replaced so many sets of front brake pads that my 11 year son was able to do the job! Replacing the rotors was a pain the neck as they were integral with the front hubs. The back seats were for kids only, very cramped and no leg room. Seats were extremely low. Front seats were great and we actually hauled an entire bedroom set plus me, my wife and the two kids.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: I bought this Mercury Bobcat Wagon as a used car from Hertz, it had an amazing cargo carrying capacity for such a small car.
Cons: The front disk calipers dragged and I was constantly replacing front pads.
