1999 Mercury Cougar L4 from North America
I love it
I have replaced the alternator two or three times now, half due to manufacturer default and stereo overload.
The timing belt MUST be done on this car at the recommended miles, or you will be stranded somewhere.
The brakes have only been done once since I got the car - amazing!
The suspension is just shot, but I think I got used to it when I found out it is over a $100 a corner to fix...
Now after so many miles, the clutch is starting to slip bad, won't go much further. I think I will find another less used Cougar for the price of repairs.
I have really loved this car.
It has been extremely reliable and fun.
No one ever knows what kind of car it is, and that is amusing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
