Better Value than the Imports! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/22/2007. Trim: 1997 Mercury Tracer LS, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Attractive, well-built, and reliable. One of the safest economy cars of its day. Low revs means higher fuel economy and less engine noise. Has the driving characteristics of a larger car, not an economy car.
Cons: Interior is stylish, but too spartan (monotone gray interior). Seats may be too hard for some and there's no lumbar support. No in-dash CD player was offered as an option. Lock-up torque converter likes to engage and disengage too often at all speeds 40+mph.
Overall review: I think these Tracers are a much better value than the imports. Cheaper to buy, cheaper to insure, cheaper to maintain/repair, good reliability. Easy tune-ups can be done by anyone. The Tracer provides all the basic characteristics a good economy car should have and then some!
