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

Review

I had been looking at getting a Firebird for about 2 months when I saw a review on cars comparable to the Pontiac. I then discovered I had a Mercury dealer 3 blocks from work and, on a whim, took a test drive during my lunch hour. That's all it took. I did 3 laps around the block and bought it the next morning. This car is fun to drive and has the look and feel of a very-well crafted machine. I have the Sports model C2 package and could not be happier. One caveat.. Keep your eye on the speedometer, you can easily be going 90-95 while it feels like 50mph.

Favorite Features

Excellent feel and handling. Interior very sporty and comfortable. Exterior design is distinctive and the French Blue clearcoat is a definite head-turner.

Suggested Improvements

It needs to be quicker off the line. However, after it does get moving, it REALLY gets moving. The design provides blocked/limited rear visability. This con WILL make you check your blind spot constantly.
