1999 Mercury Cougar 2.5 V6 from North America
Not the right car for anyone!
I don't even know where to start... the same things have happened to my car as the previous listing. It started with the trunk not opening with the button. It turns out the spring had to be replaced because it was not powerful enough to lift the weight of the trunk. Next the sunroof broke, like everyone else who has a cougar! I like how Mercury thinks a plastic clip will support a heavy moving roof. My check engine light comes on for no reason. The car has been proven to be in great condition. The coolant light as well, if it's not to the line (or over) the car thinks it is empty sot he light will come on. The started is making a nasty sound 1 out of 3 times it is started. I was told to try checking the flywheel. That's an expensive one though!
Overall, I'm sad to say that I own this car. It costs too much when you think about all of the issues it has. The dealers know about it, how could they not with so many people having the same issues! My previous car may have been old and ugly, but at least it didn't have problems that I end up spending my pay check on!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
