1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


I bought this car used with 108,000 miles on it...my '99 Sable had just crapped out with 220,000 on it so i figured another Mercury would do me good for getting back and forth to college. I now have 139,000 on it and have never had a problem. It has plenty of power except for a dull spot from 3-4000 rpms, then at 4000 she gets up and goes...its the 4 speed auto and it will do 115 in third gear at 6000 rpms...which from a 175 horse v6, is pretty impressive. Another thing is the gas mileage. I get 33mpg on a trip if I drive reasonably. Put your foot in the gas and it drops to about 24.

Best Features

Engine power at high rpms, awesome acceleration for a small v6, and stylish design. I don't listen to the stock speakers much because I have 2- 12 inch subs and a 1000 watt amp...but when I do they sound pretty good.

Worst Features

The seats could be a little more comfortable but for a small car it has plenty of room...I'm 6,3 and don't drive with the seat all the way back or hit my head off the roof.
