2000 Mercury Cougar from North America
You get what you pay for
After a few days of dying on me in traffic, the fuel pump went out at 36,000 miles. My latest problem is a short in my locking system. Which means my trunk won't unlatch with the switch and I can't use my automatic door locks.
I'm 5'4" and still find it hard to see over the steering wheel unless the seat is set at it's highest setting.
Very comfortable for road trips, The backseat is geat to have small kids jump in the back, Although I wouldn't recommend it for car seats, the few I have tried don't seam to fit correctly in the backseat. Terrific gas mileage I still get about 480 miles per tank! That makes me happy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I am 5'4" too and have the same difficulty. I think the accelerator is too deep and too far away from the brake. I had the problem with the auto locks as well and it costs quite a bit to have it fixed. Continue to have the difficulty with the trunk- usually have to open it with the key.
I have loved the car though overall. It looks great, handles well and everyone comments on it.
