2000 Mercury Cougar V6 2dr Coupe


I have had my Cougar for going on 4 years now. It had 69k when I bought it & I just took it over the 87k mark last week. Let me start off by saying that I love the looks of this car, especially with all the bells & whistles (like leather seats, moonroof, and traction control) BUT the looks alone are not worth the hassle the Cougar brings. I have replaced the alternator ($700/ea) three times! IN LESS THAN 18,OOO MILES! Today, I noticed the same old flickering lights & I headed off to trade her in for a Rav4!

Best Features

Sporty Exterior, Cruise on the steering wheel, Leather, Traction Control, Moonroof, Handles surprisingly well in the snow.

Worst Features

Better wiring & alternator, cupholders are worthless, better MPG's, not so much wind noise.
