1998 Mercury MystiqueVisitor, Apple Valley, CA, May 13, 2013 11:14At almost 300K miles, and considerable labor and parts over the last two years, it seems this car is trying to stay on the road...but my local repair shop(s) isn't(aren't) giving me much help. Three days before the last heater hose blew up (literally), I had taken my car to the shop to investigate anti-freeze leaks, only to be told that it needed a head gasket and they would be unwilling to do it! Consequently, I still had to do the hose job myself three days later, which was my ORIGINAL complaint! This car has been great until the last two years or so, but I guess it's to be expected with a 15-yr-old car! I've gotten about 10 good years from it!

1998 Mercury MystiqueVisitor, Denville, NJ, November 20, 2011 17:45I bought this car 4 years ago and put over $5,000 in repairs. 1 month ago had another repair two times egr valves replaced, and the check engine light is still on. I hate this car, and would not recommend it to anyone. Another lemon I got stuck with. Now I will not pass inspection. The mechanics that worked on it put the car on the computor and they cant figure out what it is. any ideas someone

1998 Mercury Mystiquejljohnson, Dallas, TX, October 17, 2009 20:001998 Mercury Mystique DO NOT BUY!!! Fuse Box ... NO GOOD! I had it rewired, replaced and worked on numerous times and my car still cuts off on me while driving from the starter relay connection in the fuse box, on the freeway! My brake rotars has grooves in it as if someone dragged their fingers through sand. i had the a/c condensor replaced and the car itself poked a whole in it and released all the new freon in it. My fuel pump went out and i just had it replaced, and the steering is bad, never has been in an accident.Enthusiast

1998 Mercury Mystiquelawrenceg, Beaverton, OR, December 08, 2008 13:39My parents own one and they have it in the shop every month. I have a Mini Cooper and a Honda and nowhere near the problems this has. Heck, just look at the list of recalls and service bulletins! I'm not even going to list all the problems, just avoid one of these!Master
