I liked my Cougar V6, when I first
bought it. My Cougar now however, is
developing rattles, has had pieces of
weather-proofing trim come off, the
rear brakes are groaning, 3
transmission bolts came loose, & the CD
player starts skipping after ~3 hours
of continuous play.
I do drive my Cougar with verve, but I
don't abuse my car. I maintain it
properly, the way a pre-midlife crisis
car should be. It's my impression
however, that my car was not built as
well as I thought and that it's
starting to fall apart. After reading
Consumer Report's review of the Cougar
this year where Cougar owners rated is
as much worse than average for
reliability, I am dreading the worst.
Handling, smooth power curve, spacious
cargo area, comfortable front drivers
seat (power seat options).
Improved reliability, power options on
the passenger front seat, heated seats
for the North country, & better
speakers (needs tweeters).
