Review of the 2000 Mercury Cougar

  • A sporty coupe that isn't particularly sporty and isn't really a coupe. Plus, what's up with all the angularity?

  • Safety

Vehicle: 2000 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe

I currently have this car, and all the other complaints about this car above are absolutely true. It is a complete gas hog, it has ALOT of mechanical issues, my interior sucks, headlights are horrible. My car has 134k miles on and is expected for problems, but too much. My Engines motor mount is bad, which causes my car to buck leaving me wonder if it will start for me. Hot weather it is TERRIBLE in, after it gets to about 80+ degrees it wont start. I have never had a problem with the cold though it has been negatives many times. It's fuel injector is going out, transmission is bad, and the RPMs get ridiculous. It sputters whenever you hit the gas lightly. Over all it isn't a good first car.
