1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I just turned 16 and i wanted to buy a car that i would love but a car that wouldn't completely drain my savings. The 99 cougar was perfect. It rides nice for a small car, it is fast and it gives you a feeling of security when your in it. All of the controls are easy to access while driving, and the heating and air conditioning work in seconds. If your looking for a car that makes peoples heads turn, you need this car. The great thing about it is you can't tell its 11 years old.


Best Features

easy handling, easily accessible controls, great look inside and out


Worst Features

Cupholders, Radio, Gas Mileage

Review

Great Car. To the person who bought their Cougar with 100K miles and ripped it for "poor quality". Anyone who buys a car like a Cougar with 100K miles and expects it to be "ok" needs to research more. And to think Ford should repay the customer who bought a used car with 100K is just down right funny. By the way, my cougar didn't start having troubles till 120K miles. Got rid of it in 2008 cause the tranny went out. I loved that car, no problems till 2008. If you keep up the maintenance on any car, it will last.


Best Features

Fun to drive. Sporty. Roomy hatchback.


Worst Features

Cup holder left something to be desired. Back seat was a pain to get in and out of, but more two doors arn't really a dream for people in the back seat.

1999 Mercury Cougar I4 2dr Coupe


Review

I wish I still had this car! It was fun to drive, handled well and had a sleek sporty look and it got really good gas mileage. If I ever find another one just like it I would buy it again.


Best Features

Loved driving it.


Worst Features

Back seats were angled funny, but I never sat back there, so it didn't really matter to me. ;)

Review

Runs great when not needing repairs. Like the others, engine light never turns off. Fuel pump replaced, hoses replaced, but beware the biggest problem is the engine is on top. The labor costs are double due to this fact and since they no longer make this type, the parts are hard to find and costly. Good freeway car but the maintenence was costly due to parts and labor costs. All mechanics hated working on this car and I paid for it. They commented never to buy a Cougar again....not a mechanics favorite and you will feel it in your pocket.


Best Features

Nice interior, smooth ride on freeway, gas mileage pretty good.


Worst Features

Small back seats, hard for passengers to get out of, labor costs doubled, lots and lots of repairs on annual basis. Owned for 5 years.
