2000 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I have had my Cougar for going on 4 years now. It had 69k when I bought it & I just took it over the 87k mark last week. Let me start off by saying that I love the looks of this car, especially with all the bells & whistles (like leather seats, moonroof, and traction control) BUT the looks alone are not worth the hassle the Cougar brings. I have replaced the alternator ($700/ea) three times! IN LESS THAN 18,OOO MILES! Today, I noticed the same old flickering lights & I headed off to trade her in for a Rav4!


Best Features

Sporty Exterior, Cruise on the steering wheel, Leather, Traction Control, Moonroof, Handles surprisingly well in the snow.


Worst Features

Better wiring & alternator, cupholders are worthless, better MPG's, not so much wind noise.

Review

Well this car was given to me by my parents as my first car. It was a great first car! Very sporty and got alot of attention. The only problem I ended up having with it was the sunroof broke and was going to cost a fortune to replace! Next problem...I don't drive it anymore is that I was rear ended at 50mph which in turn made me slam into the car in front of me. The car was absolutely crushed like a little can and guess what...no airbag deployment. Don't crash and the car is great!


Best Features

Unique look of the car, superb handling!


Worst Features

Crash safety!!!!!!!!!!! And cupholders.

Review

I have had to replace 3 alternators, has to get tires replaced a lot. I have to get my transmission electrial system replaced. I had to get wiring for from my engine to my alternator. My set does move up it stays in one place. My trunk, will not open on its own. Recommendation, is to check out every's car reviews before purchasing this vechile.


Best Features

I love the power the car has, and the sportness

Review

My wife purchased this car new for around 30,000 Canadian and it has been nothing but trouble, broken master cylinder causing brake failure while driving, intake manifold carboning up, broken brake calipers, premature brake wear (every 50,000 km), sun roof failure, fuel pump failure, poor suspension (shock failure 80,000 km), check engine light comes on constantly, maintenance light on since new and dealer cannot clear, the car is worth nothing now. Do not purchase this car!


Best Features

Nothing good to say about this car.


Worst Features

Burn it.
