2001 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


It's a 2001 Mercury Cougar ZN. Its got close to 150,000 mi, and its a precision build machine! Like everyone says, it doesn't have a whole lot of power but the fact that it weighs close to 3500 lbs doesn't help either. It's amazing to drive. Corners like a beast, brakes like a beast, looks like a beast. It's a ZN, and it's had routine things go wrong with it (water pump, burnt out blinker bulbs, CD got stuck, transmission rebuilt) Its still amazing to drive though, on smooth pavement it rides like its on a cloud. 17" rims mean tires are CRAZY expensive, but they make the car look amazing though! This is the sportiest daily driver you can have. But never get over 3K rpm, because I get 15 MPG

Best Features

leather wrapped steering wheel, metal pedals, sunroof, 6 CD player(when it worked), 6(?) way power drivers seat,

Worst Features

WAY more HP, bigger back seat, room for taller profile tires. That's about it..
