1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned my cougar since 1999 and
it has low miles but there is ALWAYS
something wrong with it- engine light
coming on for months, then breaks, then
had to have switch on LIGHTS for 300
some $$ then broke down twice on
vacation overheating and was towed for
electrical problems again when we
wanted to drive to Fla.! This thing's
a BAD CAR.

I bought this car for my wife and we
have driven it everywhere. We drove
it to and from the state of Washington
and Oklahoma. You want a great gas
car that looks good this is your car.

Review

I owned the car for 5 years till
somebody lost the load they were
hauling on the highway. It was a
total loss. The car ran beautifully
at all times. And obviously a safe car
for the road. I walked away without a
scratch from the accident. I would
recommend owning this car for almost
anyone that enjoys a small sporty car
without the sports <a href="http://go-
acct.com?go=car+insurance"

car insurance';return 1"
onmouseout="window.status=''">car
insurance</a>
rates. The seats were always
comfortable and held up to the wear of
20k miles a year.


Best Features

My favorite features were the easy access controllers and the cd changer in the trunk. Although I do wish there was also a cd player in the dash as well or a changer in the dash stereo.


Worst Features

As the headlamp covers aged and got weathered, the lamps didn't seem to put out as much viewing light.

Review

I bought the car new and haven't had to
replace anything but gas, oil, coolent,
tires and window switches.

I figure if the only surprise after 80K
miles was the two window switches on the
driver side, I'm in good shape.

I've taken it on numerous road trips and
it's my daily driver.


Best Features

When it was new I would get interested gawkers at EVERY fill-up. I also didn't see another cougar for three weeks after I bought mine. I really like the get-up-and-go with the V6. The reliability of this car has been ROCK solid, and 5 years later I'm not looking to replace it.


Worst Features

Ummm... that @#$%# cup holder really sucks. I have to keep the center console clear so that I can put my drink there. The back seat is a little cramped - especially in the headroom category. Finally a carseat will fit but it's hard to install because of the deep buckets.

Review

This car is great to drive. I love
it. It is so fun to drive and it has
plenty of room. Everything is easily
accessible and the sound system is
great. No complaints.


Best Features

I love the speed control volume, the manual transmission, the contour of the seats...everything.
