I got this car 6 years ago with 20k miles on it. I keep up with all the maintenance. It has done nothing but fall apart. Head gaskets, engine block crack, the computer went and fried all my sensors twice, motor mounts, bad breaks wear out frequently, front end problems the tire fell while driving, catalytic converter problems, suspension problems
I bought my Cougar (4.6L V8) with just over 100K on the clock. I sold it to an 18 year old kid for $1000, and it had 238K on it. I loved this car! Bulletproof motor! Transmission was rebuilt at 195K, but that is better than expected, at least as good as a foreign vehicle. Perfromed well with 205hp. Interior comfortable for long trips.
We purchased our 1994 Mercury Cougar brand new 13 years ago. I am happy to say that after owning the car for 13 years, I still love the car very much. It has proven to be very reliable car and still runs and rides like new, even though it has over 110,000 miles on it. I think this version of the Cougar is one of the nicest cars ever built by the Ford Motor Company. Its a shame Ford discontinued making the Cougar. The Cougar had style and still was roomy enough to use as a practical family car. How many people would say they would buy the same car again, if they had the choice after owning it for 13 years. I definitely would buy this car again if I had to do it all over again!
I love my Cougar. I have had this car since 1995. My Cougar never let me down and it is a beautiful car that is easy to handle and drives really well on the highway. If I could keep this car forever, I would.
