I have had my Cougar for two years now. I am very ready to sell it. The transmission is slipping, the struts are going bad, the passenger window is breaking, it's rusting, and the radio is poor. I have had to do quite a few repairs on this car. I have had to get new tires, whole new braking system, new shocks, like a few different, expensive things done to the motor. My service receipt pile is quite large. My car is currently in the shop for a blockage that isn't allowing coolant to get through so it's over heating. I have heard worse stories however. I guess maybe mine is just getting old. It's a '99 with 122,222 miles on it and it had been wrecked previously.
pretty powerful, moon roof
better cup holder; the cup holder is a piece of crap; you pull it out and flip it over to use and at first you're like "oh that's pretty nifty," but no, beware of when you turn, the cup holder is going to tip over, resulting in hot coffee all over your pants
