I fell into owning this car accidentally. My aunt was moving and had no room for it anymore, so I traded her a set of couches and a couple hundred bucks for it. I figured I'd just flip it and make a few extra bucks. NOPE. What I thought was an old man's car actually turned out to be a fun sporty powerhouse of a car that I just can't part with now.
Pick a one under 100k....i traveled 220miles to pick up my used cougar in sept... i looked, called at at least 30....setlled on the 3.8ltr in Conn... no issues...drives and runs great....rear bushing will nesd done, past that.. love my second cougar..... may get one w 50k miles next.... shop around dont by a beat one and it will be worth your time and effort.. i f you love the bodystyle of the 95-97'..... oh yeah cup holders suck....
I bought this car from an owner and its been nothing but awesome! Will out perform all except a Cobra Mustang. I love the looks of this car and aparently so do others as they keep staring and pointing as I go by. The all leather interior is excellent & well maintained. If I can find another one I would buy it in a flash!
One of the best cars I have owned. V-8 is a wonderful, maintenance free engine. Comfortable with fairly good gas mileage (23). Only complaint is from my wife who does not like 2-door cars with big doors. Interior has stayed pristine. I never did find the rear wheel drive to be a problem, but I did use snow tires in the winter.
