1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


After 10 years, the car still looks great, but thats just about all I can say. I bought my car new in 1998, and 2 days after I bought it it wouldn't start. This was just the beginning of my problems. The engine light keeps coming on, no matter how much I get the car repaired. The alternator has gone out 3 times, once leaving me stranded on the freeway at 2am in a storm. I am so constricted because with 86000, this car should still have life, but I can't even drive 20 minutes on the freeway without something happening. Oh yeah, and did I mention the sunroof? Don't even get me started.

Best Features

The looks, and the sound of the engine.

Worst Features

better cupholder, better reliability, more recalls. Better front seats. And also, I'd also like the comfort of knowing that my car will start when I need it to.
