1999 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


In the 5 years I have had this lemon, I have replaced the alternator twice, the transmission once, the starter, and the blower (only worked on high speed fan). The headlights dim for no apparent reason...the service guy told me that I would have to replace the connector between the starter and alternator ($1,000). I've had nothing but problems with it. I wish I never bought it.

Best Features

It looks nice.

Worst Features

Ford did a good thing by stopping the manufacture of this car. I think they owe everyone who bought this car an apology.
