1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe

Review

For once American styling surpassed Japan (in this price range anyway). Considered the Toyota Celica but the cougars' lines flow better. Got all the bells and whistles (leather, sunroof, CD, Chrome wheels) makes the car much more enjoyable in the long run.

Review

Car handles reasonably well. It's almost impossible to shift smoothly; revs don't drop for several seconds. Dies occasionally. Maybe they've fixed it now. Can't see out the back or sides.

Don't Buy It

1999 Mercury Cougar I4 2dr Coupe

Review

Although this car looks great and can be fun to drive, it has many problems. It has had more than 10 recalls in under 3 years. The "premium" radio can't get a channel to stay. The engine, wipers, etc. interupt the reception. The headlights let water leak into them. Infact, the doors and trunk leak. The back seats are very uncomfortable. The doors lock by themselves, requiring one to always keep a spare on their person. Need I say more?

Not a Ford man but I like my Cougar.

Review

Bought with Sport Package option which means the 16" tires, V-6, sport cloth interior, fog lights, spoiler, rear wiper and 4-wheel disc brakes. This car also came with ABS, auto, and traction control. We have had it for 5000 miles and have yet to put a dime into it. The road noise was a bit much but I switch from the Firehawk tires to Dunlop SP Sport A2s and it is extremely quiet now. The windows tend to creak but this is because they don't have a window frame.

I love this car. It is incredibly fun to drive, and has a lot of power to it. So far it has also been very reliable. It is fun and sporty looking, and really hugs corners. I would reccommend this car.

Review

cup holder sucks, but they fixed that. otherwise no mechanical problems. runs great, ~30 mpg with a light touch, put ZR tires and it sticks like glue, cargo for my skis, surfboard and a ton of junk when i moved.
