91 CAT

General wear on this loaded xr7, car now has over 150K but this this beefy V8 still kicks it in, cruising at 90 feels like 50. 5.0L seems a bit too powerful for the standard Ford AOD transmission as this was the only major repair, warranty would be voided if dealer didnt set 2nd gear to be run through quickly

I bought this from my grandpa with 108k and now have 168k. The only things I have replaced besides normal maintenance are the fuel pump and starter.140 hp will not win you any races, but the low end torque makes normal driving quite easy. City mileage is not good, but conservative highway driving gets me 27-28 mpg. Winter driving can be dangerous but having one or two sandbags makes a world of difference! I hear that the 3.8 had some head gaskets issues; luckily I haven't experienced them although I may still have a leak because my temp gauge can be fidgety sometimes, even after changing the thermostat. Regardless, wouldn't hesitate to drive it long distances

Great for tall people, 6'6". Good power, handles very well. Incredibly reliable car. No problems in 200,000 miles. 302 engine is great. Would definitely buy another one if this one ever gives up.

I love my antique 31 year old “1991” Mercury Cougar!! I live in Philadelphia so had rust repaired and repainted three times in the life span,(so far), of this very reliable car! It’s amazing how much this car holds.I have used it to move things many times. It’s deceiving looking with the amount of space it has. It’s like that of a stunt clown car. Watching what comes out in one car load. I love the way it looks ,the way it drives. Can’t say enough good about it!! Would like to restore the whole car and make it new again. Engine is great!! Shame they don’t make cars like this anymore.
