1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


I bought my car right after my divorce, thinking that I needed a reliable car to drive my kids around, boy was I wrong. The car has left me stranded numerous times with my children in the car. I've replaced the alternator twice, tied rod ends, wheel bearing 3 times, the check engine light is always on because of a vacuum leak 5 mechanics haven't been able to find, I can't get it inspected, I've put tires on 4 times and it eats brakes, the radio shorts out and the anti freeze light comes on if the antifreeze goes below max level. I'm considering parking the car because I owe so much money on it I can't trade and can't afford to drive it

Best Features

There are none

Worst Features

Ford should give consumers their money back so they can buy a Nissan or Toyota and then take all the Cougars and put them in a pile and burn them!!!!
