2002 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Very fun to drive car.My wife has a C2
and the only prob. we have had is with
the fuel gage and miles to empty.Right
after we bought it the gage would take
about 30 miles after filling up to go
to full.Also agree that in acceleration
it is not to great but top end is
wonderful for those who drive fast on
the interstate like me.


Best Features

C2-pack. with color coded radio- dash.Very easy to handle at high speeds.


Worst Features

very poor resale.

2002 Mercury Cougar 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My 2002 Mercury Cougar V6 sport is one
of the best looking cars on the road.
I cant stand reading all the poor
reviews on this car. Whats wrong with
it? Its not as fast as a mustang
cobra? If you want a fast car, get
something else. Its not like the
cougar is slow. I can hang with
celica's and V6 'stangs. PLus, the
cougar looks better. What else can you
ask for? This is a TREMENDOUS car if
youre looking for a sports car for
under or around $20,000.


Best Features

6 cd-changer, exterior styling, Sunroof, handling.

Review

I love my 2002 Cougar. It's so fun to
drive and the V6 really has kick for
the amount of $$ spent. It really is
too bad that they've discontinued it.
I would recommend it to anyone that
doesn't want to haul people around. I
used to play chauffer for everyone with
my 4 door family car, but no more!


Best Features

Interior features, Six-disc in dash stereo system, Vertical adj. driver seat (good for short people!), Sleek chrome dash and pedals.


Worst Features

None. It's a great car.

Review

I'd driven this car before so when it
came time to buy I didn't waste any
time comparing or looking on Edmunds.com
I found the hard way that you should
always research what you buy, even if
you (think you) know what you are
getting. Here's what I found:

1) the I4 engine is not powerful enough
to run the airconditioning while
driving up hill

2) You get no acceleration with this
engine.

Maybe I have high expectations since I
am in Germany and I'm rolling down the
Autobahn next to BMWs and Audis but
when you get the Autobahn you have to
keep up!


Best Features

Exterior and Interior look VERY sexy. CD\Tape\AM-FM Radio is a definite PLUS.


Worst Features

A sporty car like this deserves a V6 or V8 engine.
