Heaven to hell

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Cougar I4 2dr Coupe

I got this car as my first car. It was bought with busted valve gasket (easily fixed, cheap). Beautiful car! Drifter body kit, engine mods, custom exhaust and muffler. 4mo after getting car Timing Belt crystallized (expensive, had to get tensioner too). 1mo later replaced vacuum line. Engine light has always been on. NOW, master cylinder blew. I loved this car in the beginning. Super fun, with 5 speed transmission, super quick. BUT, it JUST SITS more than i drive it. Expenses to get it fixed are just ridiculous!!




Been good to me

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Cougar I4 2dr Coupe

I bought the car new, it was cute and got great gas mileage. I have the 5 speed transmission. Everything held up great. I took good care of my care and can recommend it as a used vehicle if you are looking for good gas mileage and nice sound system. I didn't have any of the negative experiences mentioned by other owners. The tires went to 78K original, the tire tools clunk around, but you can fix that. Great sound system. Not a speed demon, but got me to where I wanted to go and didn't cost me much after the purchase price.




Fun but some problems

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Cougar I4 2dr Coupe

Car is ok to drive but some minor problems have come up 1. Sun roof broke and some times leaks from rain 2. Driver side window doesn't always go up 3. Alternator die a year ago. 4. The counter for how many miles you have left is way off its died twice on me when it said it had 23 miles left its ok but I would Rather have a Ford mustang and I will be selling this car

I'm confused. I'm being tempted by an attractive offer on a Olds Alero, but I really want a Cougar. How do you feel about this price? It seems high to me. Cougar 2000 V6 (Auto :( ) silver, 10k mile...
