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

Review

At 51 years old, I needed a fun car that wouldn't make it impossible to send my kids to college. I did a lot of research and the Merc Cougar came out on top. Not the fastest or most prestigious, but, to me, the best toy for the $$. V6, 24 valves, full power, perfect fit for my 5'7" frame. All this with 30mpg on the open road. It corners better than any of my other cars, and makes me feel like I am in control.

Best Features

Duratec V6, tight suspension, good gas mileage, 11 seconds to 60mph.

Worst Features

Ford should put a Chrysler Torqueflite into this baby. Ford has never, as far as my experience with three of them over 30 years has indicated, built an automatic transmission that can shift with the authority of a Chrysler.
