1999 Mercury Cougar 2.5L V6 from North America
The WORST car I ever owned
1999 Mercury Cougar - Alternator and battery replaced; alternator twice within 1-yr. A/C failed at 50k miles. Brakes done three times in 100K miles. Continuous problems with dash lights and headlights flickering (all TSB's done to no effect) ; no mechanic can solve this problem... not even Ford/Mercury. Engine miss in 3rd gear. TSB on battery cable had to be done. Heater core failed due to galvanic action (known problem) ; required replacement.
This driver will NEVER purchase another Ford or Mercury after 7-years of pain.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
