Lownslow — the mercury cougar is an amzingly smooth riding solid car. i have it slammed with 17's and a nice michelin tire capable of some serious on ramp speeds. seeing how i got the car for free it has treated me very well

Very Likeable — This vehicle was very nice. Extremely roomy. Performance was not amazing but it moved quick enough when needed. I was able to fix most of the stuff by myself. Except some of the computer stuff. This car was rea fun to drive, until I wrecked it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Big Cat King Of The Road — this car is very quick and well handleing the auto adjustable suspension makes a noticeable change to handleing. the 3.8l supercharged v6 makes for a perfect mix of performance and economy making about 27 canadian mpg (imperial gallons are bigger than us gallons) with a 0-60 mph time of about 6.5 seconds.

Pros

Just an all around awesome car to own, if you can find one in this shape get it but it;s a rare find.

Cons

Nothing sucks about it just keep er straight and on the pavement.

Bottom Line Is Its The Best Funest Most Reliable Vechicle I've Ever Owned. Would Never Part With It! — Performance- Accelerates awesome thanks to the supercharger, not the best braking, handling is something that comes with drivin the car for a while. Build Quality- Very little work has ever needed to be done only the usual up keep of a vechicle, very reliable. Apperance- Outside is not the most attractive car but I love it and interior is awesome comfortable, 6 way power seats, cruise, a/c, all the goods for that year. Cost of Ownership- Gas can be pricey takes supreme gas only, very little maintence cost, might rack up the speeding tickets tho lol, and go through few sets of rear tires. Fun Factor- The car is very fun to drive I guess thats why we will never part with it.
