1999 Mercury Cougar 2.5 liter DOHC from North America
A good deal on a quick car, but high cost to maintain it
The fuel pump.
Transmission at 35,000 miles.
The toe right after I got it.
My heater would only work on the highest setting which is 4.
The steering wheel always wants to go to the left when I stop.
Engine makes a knocking noise.
Engine makes a loud humming noise once in a while.
Catalytic converters at 68,000 miles.
Dome lights fades from bright to dim.
Check engine light always on, goes on a few hours after I have it serviced.
Air bag light flashes.
A/C stopped working at 30,000 miles.
Brake lights stay on permanently even when my headlights are not on.
The car handles very good.
Fast for a little car that is stock.
The dims on the headlights aren't very bright.
A lot has gone wrong with this car, the first week I had it, it was in the shop, a lot of things go wrong with this type of car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
