Good For Busted — Decent little car bought used. Not fast but I could maneuver pretty well. Got it up to 104 which peaks near the end of the engine ability and where the governor is set. Last well for little-no maintenance. Mom didn't believe in it. Our car was a lemon because it had been in a wreck that crushed both sides. Found body bon- do underneath and the metal was mismatched.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, Works well For what it did

Cons: Bad cup holder, placement Coding system not helpful

The Mystique — The mystique isnt anything like a lambo, it packs alot of punch for a 2.5 V6 tho

Overall its a great compact little car, gets about 20mpg of mixed driving. Tan Interior looks fantastic for the time period, Not much on horsepower for the 2.0l 4 cylinder engine. This Zetec 2.0l Engine is fantastic, simple design and most of everthing is easy to access/replace. I Had a fuse that kept blowing and caused the turn signals & the shift lock to not disengage, I ended up taking the shifter lock out entirely so I couldnt be stranded. Overall quality is good, Very comfortable and cozy to me. Very Responsive and provides good road feedback when driving it, also it handles extremely well. I have confidence in the motor and body however as many people have said- these cars have a terrible track record of automatic transmissions going out before Ex: 150k or less. All in all its a reliable car that hasnt stranded me completely yet, If youre looking to buy one of these cars do take note to: Get a 2.0l 4cyl and A Manual transmission, if you get automatic- check with previous owner on whether or not they serviced the transmission regularly with new fluid. Lastly, I bought this car for $495 plus $100 for towing, so for $595 I got a decent car and Im sure that you can too.

Handling Ranked 2006 Ford Fusion S worse.
"Smaller car, and more tight/responsive steering on the 99 mercury mystique compared to the 06 ford fusion. "
Family Car Ranked 2006 Ford Fusion S better.
"If its in good shape the fusion has 4 cup holders compared to 2 cup holders in the mercury, The fusion has more firm seats for those with bad backs up front and nice cushy back benchseat, also the fusion has more space inside obviously because the fusion is a much bigger sedan compared to the fusion. Lastly, the crash test ratings are much higher in the fusion compared to the mercury."
