1999 Mercury Cougar V6 from North America
Love the cougar, but it's gonna cost!
Fog lights are blown out (normal).
Sunroof is bad; doesn't open.
Little things are falling apart inside the car.
No room in the back seats.
I love this car!
It's sporty and stylish! I would never get rid of it! It looks hot and drives smooth!
Although it does come across some major problems! I have only had this car for about 2 weeks now, and already I have read bad reviews and encountered some problems! First I had the sunroof checked out, and found out it will cost $800 to have it fixed! So I had them patch it up and let it go! I'm not paying that much money for a sunroof!
Then whenever I hit the gas hard, the battery light would come on so I had my mechanic look at it, and he said there was a brand new alternator in it, and something was triggering it to go on every time, so he fixed that.
Now the wheel bearings are going! I am gonna get that fixed; I'm not sure how much it's gonna cost me yet! But other than that, that's all I have had go wrong with it! The car has 175,000 miles on it, and it rides so smooth and shifts wonderfully!
I work at a dealership and we bought this car for $500, and when it came in I wanted the car and I just love it! I wouldn't recommend it for a 16 year old kid or someone with young kids, cause there is no room in the back seat! Although my little puppy loves to curl up in the bucket seats! LOL.
I would have to say that if you are not mechanically inclined, then this isn't the car for you, or if you don't want to spend a ton of money, because most likely you will have problems and be fixing something with this car!
But all in all, I enjoy my Cougar and it's gonna be hard for me to get rid of it!
It looks awesome and rides 100%.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
