2000 Mercury Cougar 2.5 V6 from North America
It's a nice car that drives nice, but way too many problems
I have a 2000 Cougar with 76000 on it. I bought it back in December with 74000.
I haven't had really any problems with it in the short time I've had it, except for I was parked idling for about 15 minutes, and then my car just turned off. Then it wouldn't restart. Nothing electronically will work in the car, it won't turn over at all, and it doesn't make any kind of clicking noise, so it can't be the starter.
My car has an after market alarm system because I have the door handles shaved, and I noticed that my fuse for the alarm was blown, but I replaced it and nothing happened. I've tried jumping the battery and putting a new battery in it, but I don't think the new battery was a reverse polarity. If anyone could help me out with this? I'm running out of things to check.
I like the Cougar a lot on the outside, and it's interior isn't too bad. The power isn't the best, but it still has some power to it. But the problems I have with this car are just way too much to handle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
