1984 Mercury TopazReview
Decent Little Sedan For Its Time — This was the first car I bought off of a lot - albeit used. It was also my first four door sedan. I really liked the way the car looked and it rode pretty nice too. The four-banger was a little underpowered esp. married to the slush-box tranny. The seats were comfy but being vinyl you tended to stick to them. The car got decent mileage as I recall. Overall I liked it.
Pros: Comfortable, good visibility, stylish for its day
Cons: Underpowered, sticky vinyl seats

Buy It If Its Under 1k. Its A Fun Car That You Can Roll And No One Cares.
Tim is a solid little car. Comfy seats. Not the worst looking either. Stayed in good condition considering its older than I am, only had to fix the breaks so far. Sadly though, NO BALLS. 95hp. And not... Read More
