1999 Mercury Cougar LX from North America
Piece of junk money pit
EVERYTHING has gone wrong with this car... it's a piece of junk!
I've had the alternator, starter, radiator, air flow sensor, heater core, blower, catalytic converter, head gasket and several other things replaced. If I were to put the car up for sale I can advertise it "Like New" since there's so many new things in it. The car has practically been completely re-built.
Not to mention that when it's really cold outside it refuses to start. Any temp below freezing and forget about it...
I terribly regret ever buying this car, I can't afford to keep it running anymore. I've had it towed at least 3 times a year every year that I've owned it.
I also have the whistling noise from my speakers, but I figured out that if you dim the dash lights the noise goes away. Or the alternative is to turn off the radio, this makes the noise go away too.
I had to go to Walmart a buy one of those cup holders that you wedge between the passenger seat and the middle console, because the cup holder that came with the car dumps drinks in my lap!!!
I would never wish this car on my worst enemy... I wish I found this site before I bought the stupid thing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
