Great Car For Commutes And Getting Around — its a great little car. spoiler. lots of room, nice pep, really great mileage and handles really well. since its older it is getting a little expensive to keep running but really its a lot of fun to drive. i would strongly recommend this car to anyone who wants a good cheap reliable car

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: id buy it all over again

Cons: expensive to maintain. bit more problems. no cruise control or automatic lights, more power lol

1997 Mercury Mystique 4 Dr GS SedanReview

Mystique! Like Or Dislike — This car is very reliable. It has great gas mileage. The performance on the vehicle since it only has a V4 is limited but with a little tweeking and adding performance parts it can do pretty well. The car also looks great how the body is designed.

Pros: Great gas mileage

Cons: Not alot of horsepower

Overall Good Car — bought it previously owned from lyons-ryan in antioch (ok, my dad bought it for me :) I love you daddy!) ran great for a while but now it breaks down on long trips in hot weather. don't ask me why

Pros: the color (teal) and its cute

Cons: as stated above, breaks down
