I am so frigging glad I was too stupid to research a car before purchasing. I bought my 2000 Mercury Cougar in Feb 2009, knowing the motor needed to be replaced for 800, and just knew I was getting the deal of a lifetime with this gorgeous car.
Well I replaced so much on this car, and spent so much money, that it's not funny, it is hilariously stupid. Still don't know for sure what's wrong with it, and of all the year and a half I've owned it, I have driven it maybe 10 miles, and that's because we live one mile from the store, so 2 miles there and back. Still laughing? Me too.
I would not suggest even a Ford, much less a Mercury. The guy at the store said he thought the rattling is my flywheel, so I am trying to research it to see if it may be, and if it's even worth it to try. This car is a big fat money pit.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
