2000 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my Cougar in February 2005 its a 2000 Jet Black and beautiful! The previous owner took care of it like a baby. There have been NO problems so far (hope i didnt jinx myself) I have owned lots of sports cars and this one is smooth. Ive never had any problems with the infamous drink holder. I have Monza exhaust and Weapon R Intake. This car PURRS!


Best Features

The sleek black quality paint job and the very comfy bucket seats. Makes me feel like im in the cockpit of a jet.


Worst Features

none

2000 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


Review

This Car is a must buy for anyone looking for a car. I bought mine new in Feb of 2000. Ive only had the issue with the fuel pump recall. The cougar only came out with this bodystyle for 4 yrs which makes it not your everyday driver. Its a quick little car with tons of potential for the motor.


Best Features

The fact that not every other car on the road is a Cougar. It kinda stands out and people often ask what it is.


Worst Features

we need the SVT motor

Review

Negatives:
* Replaced fuel pump twice
* Been in the shop 5 different times.
* Turning radius is terrible (it
reminds me of a semi)
* Backseats are too small for adults.
* Dim Headlights are too dim.
* No compartments for change & stuff.

Positives:
* Tons of trunk room
* V6 is fast & fun.
* Mercury covered the cost of the
fuel pump recall.

I have had the car into get serviced
many times. The fuel pump has been
replaced twice. No one seems to know
what is wrong with it. After the
redesigned pump was put it, I figured
my problems are over. I still have a
sluggish engine and I am constantly
worried it will break down.

Basically, i'm selling it!


Worst Features

I am glad to see production was stopped on Cougars. Hopefully they will stay retired this time.

Review

I have had this car for two years,
minimal problems. Just had to deal
with recall of the fuel pump. Love the
car, it is fun to drive and it looks
nice. The only bad things about the
car is the cup holder sucks and the
trunk is tricky. Good car to "hook
up".


Best Features

V-6 engine, overdrive on/off control, low riding feel, and roomy trunk


Worst Features

new cup holder and trunk latch

Review

Bought it new and nothing has gone
wrong with it yet.
I'm pretty tall and fit fine in it,
which is kinda surprising for being a
sport-compact.
I average 25 mpg with a v6 and an
automatic. Thats with a fair mix of
city and highway driving.
It is an oddball tire size, so they
can be expensive, but I went one size
up to a common size and they were
cheap. It didn't change the ride or
speedometer to where I'd notice.
Overall if I had the initial buying
decision to do over again, I'd still
buy it.


Best Features

It looks cool. Good gas mileage. Doesn't break down.


Worst Features

For what it is; a sporty, compact car, it excells.
