the seats were comfortable, and the car looked great. if you got the LS or XR7 models, then the options were decent aswell


Pretty damn slow at 120 hp, and really bad on gas. Interior had unsightly, yet appropriate for the age fake wood trim.


Quenches The Passion Of Any Cougar Owner. — In my opinion, the best cougar of the last 3 Cougar platforms. Great purr to the engine, amazingly long hood, and it was around in some of the best moments of my life. It had a large engine compared to it's output, and was a guzzler on gas. Yet, it's a worthy sacrifice to have those trademark rear windows, beautiful curves, and a unique personality to match an interesting history.
