1988 Mercury Tracer Base Hatchback 4-door 1.6l on 2040-cars
Wrightstown, New Jersey, United States
Vehicle has 55,000 original miles! I am the 2nd owner and have had it for almost 1 year. I purchased it from Miller Subaru on Route 38 in Mt. Holly along with another vehicle last year. This vehicle was traded in by the original owner for a new Subaru Impreza at the request of her family members to "get a new car". My wife and I saw it and thought it was so cool, like a trip back in time to the 80's. The car was 100% original equipment down to the tires! The vehicle has been completely restored. Repairs consist of over $5500 worth of work (not counting the price of the car $2800): new tires, belts, hoses, axle shafts, exhaust system, A/c compressor w/conversion kit, radiator, thermostat, engine temp sensor, valve cover gasket, oil pan gaskets for engine and transmission, all fluids flushed and cleaned (trans, engine, cooling system, power steering). Vehicle has new paint (no bondo or rust repair was needed prior too paint). Vehicle was purchased as an every day cheap driver, however we just purchased 2 new vehicles and there is no need/purpose for this now. It is a great vehicle, especially for a new driver or even for someone like me that was going to keep it for a long time (until our first child just arrived)... also the vehicle is clean and has never had an accident or flood damage. I am in no rush to sell and this is a car and the buyer will not need to repair, fix, or fear anything.
If you are the highest bidder and surpass the reserve price, I am asking for a $250 deposit within 24 hours of auction close. We will talk at auction close to discuss details of how to make the deposit, or it can be done through PayPal if you prefer.
If you live locally and want to see the vehicle in person, just call and I will work out a time with you.
I reserve the right to end the auction at any time if it sells before auction end.

Ford has announced a recall of certain Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan vehicles after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. A total of 128,616 2010 and 2011 models equipped with steel wheels may have been manufactured with wheel studs that could crack and split over time. If that happens, the vehicle may experience a wheel separation.

According to The Detroit News, the company is aware of a total of 30 wheel separation incidents, one of which occurred on the front of the vehicle. Even so, no injuries have been reported as a result of the defect.
The problem apparently stems from the fact that the mounting pads on the vehicles' steel wheels may have been faulty from the factory. In addition, the wheel mounting face on rear disc brakes may not have been installed properly. Ford will inspect the rear disc face and replace them as necessary. In addition, the company will replace all of the vehicle's wheel studs free of charge. Head to the NHTSA website for more information, and click past the jump to view the full recall notice.
It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.

The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.
'Tis the season... for road salt. And with that, comes rust. And what does rust bring? Well, for Ford and General Motors, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation. According to The Detroit News, NHTSA is looking into potential recalls issues with Chevrolet Express vans and Ford Freestar minivans.
The feds have received five complaints that rust has caused leaking fuel filler pipes on 2003 Express vans. Separately, seven complaints have been filed over excessive rust in the rear wheel wells of 2004 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans. The Freestar and Monterey went out of production in 2007. Neither issue has resulted in any crashes or injuries, according to the report.
