I've had my Cougar about 4 years now and it's only just over 89,000 miles. I've had to have 3 fuel flushes ..the gas was filthy and very dark brown and causing the engine to miss. I've had to put 2 new batteries in it along with an altenator. I had plugged ECG valves. Last week I spent $700. on a new fuel pump along with a fuel/oil pressure censor. I've replaced all 4 tires. The dash lights and headlights are always flickering. It won't start if it's cold out. My sunroof won't open. It's starting to rust. The battery light is always flickering on and off (even with a new battery and altenator). When it's cold out my trunk won't stay open I have to hold it up (hatchback)..do not recommend!!!
