2001 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Bought it with 79k for my wife in 98. Has 112k now. Car looks great outside, inside is a little small. I don't know what everyone is talking about with the gas, i average 35 mpg going 60, and about 32 mpg going 70. so far, replaced both rear shocks, fuel pump, both timing chains, water pump, plugs, wires, all 4 brakes. Now I have about 3 different noises coming from the car, in which all i can't find. I'm tired of dropping money into it. As soon as something is fixed, something else needs fixed. I don't recommend it to anyone that can't work on cars!!

Favorite Features

love the gas mileage, and the exterior styling

Suggested Improvements

doesn't matter because it's gone now, but better quality engine/transmission parts. Thing breaks constantly. More backseat space, and a normal transmission, not one that shifts when it wants and wanders all the time.
