Purchased a piece of junk

Vehicle: 1990 Mercury Cougar LS 2dr Coupe

My husband and I thought this car was in decent condition when we test drove it. After owning it for 2 weeks, major problems started. The stereo only plays in warm weather, passenger side power window stopped working, would not start in hot weather, had to replace alternator, fan, battery, and spark plugs. Also, a few heater vents in the dash quit blowing air. Digital display for radio is completely burnt out. We put more money into maintaing this car than what we paid for it(not counting frequent oil changes).

Hard to kill

Vehicle: 1990 Mercury Cougar LS 2dr Coupe

This '90 Cougar was acquired from a neighbor for $2000 in June 1999 just before the 3.8L V-6 engine blew it's head gasket at 50K miles. $1000 in repairs essentially rebuilt the engine and there's been no problems since. The Cougar starts right up even during the coldest NY winters, runs smooth, accelerates OK and still gets 30 MPG on the highway. The ride is cloud-like, I haven't replaced the tires in 50K miles and there's no rattles. The brakes have been worked on a few times; but nothing more than maintenance work. Ford's engineers designed the vehicle well and everything works although it's almost 17 years old. If the doors and rocker panels weren't rusting out; I could drive this forever.

Talking about an '89 Cougar actually. Bought new and plan to keep it until one of us dies. Now has 143,000 miles. Replaced head with a used unit at about 118,000. No problems since. Still with original transmission. Leather interior has seen better days, but we're talking 15 years here.
