2002 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Very fun to drive car.My wife has a C2 and the only prob. we have had is with the fuel gage and miles to empty.Right after we bought it the gage would take about 30 miles after filling up to go to full.Also agree that in acceleration it is not to great but top end is wonderful for those who drive fast on the interstate like me.


Best Features

C2-pack. with color coded radio- dash.Very easy to handle at high speeds.


Worst Features

very poor resale.

2002 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My 2002 Mercury Cougar V6 sport is one of the best looking cars on the road. I cant stand reading all the poor reviews on this car. Whats wrong with it? Its not as fast as a mustang cobra? If you want a fast car, get something else. Its not like the cougar is slow. I can hang with celica's and V6 'stangs. PLus, the cougar looks better. What else can you ask for? This is a TREMENDOUS car if youre looking for a sports car for under or around $20,000.


Best Features

6 cd-changer, exterior styling, Sunroof, handling.

2002 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love my 2002 Cougar. It's so fun to drive and the V6 really has kick for the amount of $$ spent. It really is too bad that they've discontinued it. I would recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to haul people around. I used to play chauffer for everyone with my 4 door family car, but no more!


Best Features

Interior features, Six-disc in dash stereo system, Vertical adj. driver seat (good for short people!), Sleek chrome dash and pedals.


Worst Features

None. It's a great car.

Review

I'd driven this car before so when it came time to buy I didn't waste any time comparing or looking on Edmunds.com I found the hard way that you should always research what you buy, even if you (think you) know what you are getting. Here's what I found: 1) the I4 engine is not powerful enough to run the airconditioning while driving up hill 2) You get no acceleration with this engine. Maybe I have high expectations since I am in Germany and I'm rolling down the Autobahn next to BMWs and Audis but when you get the Autobahn you have to keep up!


Best Features

Exterior and Interior look VERY sexy. CD\Tape\AM-FM Radio is a definite PLUS.


Worst Features

A sporty car like this deserves a V6 or V8 engine.
