1994 Mercury Cougar XR-7 V8 from North America
I love this car and would buy another with low mileage
At 134,000 miles was necessary to have intake ports cleaned and "DPFE Sensor" replaced.
At 153,000 miles a computer board went out causing all fuel injectors to stick open, pumping 3/4 of a tank of gas through the motor and out the tail pipe in 3 miles. Fixed in two days and $500.
At 174,000 miles all catalytic converters pluged up causing the car to quit. Two mechanics quoted between $1500 and $2000 to fix the problem. This is the point where I say. It's no longer worth fixing. We have put a bandage on the problem. I'm sad. This has been such a great car.
This has been a great car. In the 4 years of ownership we have put 110,000 mile on this car.
Very dependable and reliable.
Very roomy for 2 adults and 2 kids, however, wouldn't suggest putting 2 adults in the back seat for long periods.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
