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


I had been drooling over a Prelude SH
until I drove one and kept asking
myself if I wanted to spend all that
money on something so plain and basic
as the SH is.... Once I spotted a
Cougar, I researched it and fell head
over heels for it. The third day we
owned it, a teenage girl ran a stop
sign and had this car not been able to
react during a swerve and skid she
would have totaled this car... I never
felt like the car was out of control...
Wonderful car!!! C2 model's a definite

Best Features

When Homer Simpson was asked to design the perfect car for "Every man" he screwed up.... If I had that chance, I would have come up with everything that is in the Cougar.... Fantastic interior, and great lines outside!!! Definitely appealing and tremendously fun to drive...

Worst Features

The car has been discontinued unfortunately.... I would have liked to have seen the rear drop down seats lock and unlock with a key as well as the fuel tank access door, as they do on the Preludes.... Perhaps white faced gauges would be nice also....
