2000 Mercury Cougar LX from North America
Alternator - (twice!).
Broken trunk struts (or whatever they're called, in hatchbacks).
The car hasn't been driven much. I am the original owner, and had it ordered for me (not chosen off the lot, in other words).
It hasn't given me a whole lot of trouble before, but I have been home bound, and really haven't driven it much during these cold winter months.
I've had to buy two batteries for it (luckily, one was still warrantied), and now it's dead again, so I think this time it's the alternator AGAIN! Goodness gracious!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
