Pros

I have nothing bad to say about this vehicle. We've owned it 18 years and never had any major problems, just the basic maintenance services.

Cons

No disappointments here, Get in and drive anywhere !!

Great Car Extremely Reliable !!! — I like everything about the car and have no dislikes, The car has served us well over the long years of owning it. Whoever buys this car I know will enjoy it as much as we did. The A/c blows ice cold.

Awesome — Best Car ever driven wish to had still be able to drive today!!! No matter how fast driven it responded perfectly. Cost very good other than other minor maintenance. The Couger is the best car to drive. One of the best muscle cars.

A Economic Car From The Mercury Line — The acceleration can be increseased by the overdrive and it´s powerfoul engine can make in extreme conditions. The gas mileage is average because of the engine. These car is fun to drive because of the engine powerplant. The car need a few repairs when it goes about 1.500 mileages.

Cons

body damage

Driving Is More Fun Sideways! — most my friends know Karen, she's fun to drive, has plenty of room, has yet to be stopped by the 5 oh, gets less than 15 mpg, has cold ac that turns out if you hit a bump in the road, is by far not a show winner, and sadly, no longer has a sweet stereo

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Sexy Cougar — My car is my Baby. I love the way she handles, I love the way she looks. She is a work of art. My Cougar is the best car that I have ever owned. I prefer older cars with sexy lines and she delivers.
