1998 Mercury Mystique 4 Dr GS Sedan Review

Good, Fun To Drive Car. — Not a bad acceleration for a car like it. It handles really nicely and brakes are good. It needed a new battery and alternator when I got it but thats cause it was running on the original. Some people call it a beige color, I think it looks more gold. Not bright yellowish gold, but like the kind of gold crayola has on their pencil crayons. It's really good on gas, takes less than $50 to fill and goes for about 300 km city driving. Its a good car to have when you need a four door for your lazy friends.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It is good car to drive people around in.

Cons: It looks like an old persons car.

Made Me A Sad Panda — thought it looked nice and was a good deal, but within 48 hours it had to brought back to the dealer for repairs, under warranty thankfully. drove the hell out of it until it just couldn't go anymore....died before 190,000 miles with over 3,000 dollars worth of work needed to get it back on the road

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: if you hate your life drive this car

Cons: american made

Great 1st Car — My car has over 235,500 miles on it and still runs like a champ, it has needed very few minor repairs, most just preventive maintenance. It is also a lot of fun to drive for a 4 cylinder. Over all, a very nice car.

Pros: good gas mileage, very quick for a 4 cylinder

Cons: Nothing really sucks with my car, although I have heard of some Mystiques having transmission problems, but mine hasn't had any

Mystique — Car is junk as are all ford mid-size sedans of the era. Car is solid and will last a while and is a great car for your first car. Can be had cheap but parts are exspensive, Cheap on gas ( $40 to fill the tank in Newfoundland). I love this car.

Pros: Good build, Comfortable, Appealing, roomy,big trunk,quiet

Cons: exspensive parts

It Works — Not that bad of a car, decent power, leather, sunroof, handles good and with my lead foot it still gets 20 mpg!

Pros: Is a Jaguar X-Type in Mercury cloths (except the AWD part)

Cons: Needs another 100+ hp and 17" tires.
