1990 Mercury Cougar LS 2dr Coupe

Review

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

Review

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.

Review

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.

Great Car Shame on Ford for Replacing it

Review

This car is very reliable, practical, comfortable, and has decent power. It's perfect for what it used for. It's in Bergundy, but we would have had a Blue one, if my wife's Toyota Corolla didn't fail us on our wedding day. The problem was too big to want me to keep the car being a mechanic, so we went to our dealer and bought this one. Usual wear has caused the power windows and AC to require replacing when the car was 11 and 13 years old. The only problem that was a bit premature was the odomoter went out at about 500 miles, but it wasn't a big problem.

Review

I bought my 90 Cougar on Christmas Eve of 1992 from my local Mercury dealership. The original owner bought it new, she bought a new cougar every 2 years, I was 17 at the time. Have all records from her, she had all work done at the dealership. Have had only 1 problem and that was a head gasket went out after 189,000 miles. New engine was the fix, runs great

Review

I accually have a red LS and a black XR7. Both are 1989 models which are the same as 1990 models. I bought the LS new and it has been a great car. It has 133000 miles on it and is going strong. I just bought the XR7. It only has 45000 miles on it and is great condition. The 89 and 90 cougars are my personal favorite looking cars and run great too. If you find a good used one BUY it.
