The '''Merit''' is one of the many full-size four-door sedans featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]] and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]].
== Design ==
In its first appearance in === GTA San Andreas, the ===The Merit is originally based on a fourth generation, 1991–1996 [[wp:Mazda 929#1990|fourth generation, 1992-1995 Mazda 929]], one of a handful of vehicles in GTA San Andreas with a rounded body design. === GTA IV ===In [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], the Merit, assuming a [[Declasse]] badge, is redesigned with a similar look to the [[wp:Chevrolet Impala#2000-2005|2000-2005 Chevrolet Impala]] with the back seemingly inspired by a mid-1990s [[wp:BMW 3 Series (E36)|BMW E36 3-Series]], the front bumper could be derived from a variety of cars, and the headlights look more reminiscent of a [[wp:Pontiac GTO#Revival|fourth generation Pontiac GTO]] than the Impala (the split grille is also Pontiac-like). This car is also the standard base for the [[Police Patrol]] car and a [[Taxi|taxi car]].
In [[Grand Theft Auto Michelle (GTA IV)|Michelle]], the Merit, assuming a [[Declasse]] badge, is redesigned with depicted to own a similar look to unique silver Merit when the 2000-2005 [[wp:Chevrolet Impala|Chevrolet Impala]] with player first meets her. The car is used during the back seemingly inspired by a mid-1990s mission [[wp:BMW 3 Series First Date (E36GTA IV)|BMW E36 3-SeriesFirst Date]], the front bumper could and can be derived from a variety of cars, and kept afterwards. It has the headlights look more reminiscent same properties as that of a fourth generation Pontiac GTO than the Impalaregular Merit. <gallery width="auto" perrow="2" style="font-size:95%; padding:0; text-align:left" widths="180">Merit-GTAIV-front.

== Performance ==
=== GTA San Andreas' ===This rendition of the Merit is designed as a balanced out performance, having average brake response and cornering, and good acceleration and speed. Coupled with its four-seat capacity, the Merit is a practically a good choice for drive-bys and [[police]] evasion. === GTA IV ===The GTA IV rendition of the Merit is powered by a V6, mated to a 5 speed transmission in a rear-wheel drive layout. Acceleration is good, but nothing special, and in line with the Merit's vanilla, everyday sedan image. Its top speed, 145 km/h (90 mph), is good, but not impressive. Braking is very good, and ABS is standard. The suspension is very firm, keeping the Merit flat through corners, and enabling it to corner effectively at speed. Accident deformation is acceptable, as the Merit will survive a few frontal impacts before being rendered unusable. The Merit seems suited towards any situation; it's capable of high speeds and it seems able to survive a serious car chase, making it a perfect addition to any parking space.
== Customization in GTA San Andreas ==The GTA IV rendition of the Merit is powered by a V6, mated to a 5 speed transmission in GTA San Andreas can be modified at a RWD layout. Acceleration is good, but nothing special; in line with the Merit's vanilla, everyday sedan image. Top speed is good, but again, not impressive. Braking is very good, and ABS is standard equipment. The suspension is very firm, keeping the Merit flat through corners; and making it able to corner effectively at speed. Accident deformation is acceptable[[TransFender]], as the Merit will survive which offers a few frontal impacts before being rendered unusable. The Merit seems suited towards any situation, it's capable substantial range of high speeds and it seems able to survive a serious parts for the car chase, making it a perfect addition to any parking space.:

This Merit is bulletproof, explosionproof, fireproof, and damageproof. To get it, after you take it to the parking lot, block the valet's path, and shoot him out, then take it to the garage. Put it in the garage, but keep the garage door open, and set yourself on fire through a flamethrower or Molotov cocktails. Quickly get in the vehicle, and when it catches on fire, get out, wait for it to explode, then close the garage door, and re-open it, and the Merit is yours to keep. * A Merit in pristine condition sells for $1,800 at [[S&M Auto Sales]] in GTA IVafter completion of [[Stevie's Car Thefts]].* The GTA IV rendition of the car unusually features a metal partition between the front and rear occupant compartments, similar to the Taxi and Police Patrol, despite being a private vehicle and thus having no need for it.* [[Wrecks]]of the Merit can be found in GTA IV.
