I guess that depends on what you mean by "good cars." Edmunds.com says "a high-tech engine and overall solid feel make this [1999 Tracer sedan] an excellent entry-level Mercury."
On the down side it said "Interior roominess, especially for rear seat passengers, is lacking even for a compact car."
For me, myself, personally . . . a high tech engine and a solid feel are more important than the roominess of the back seat. So in my opinion, yes the 1999 Mercury Tracer sedan is a "good car".
