Money Pit — This car would be a great car if it was in good working order, but my 99 cougar is not. I would tell people to be various when looking to buy one of these cars, and to really look at the car to see how difficult it is to work on due to hand space

Pros

Awesome gas mileage....Not bad looking.

Cons

A bit gutless....But some mods will help that.

Great Car....amazing Quality For The Money! — The performance is average, acceleration is a bit better than I had hoped, braking is excellent, and it handles pretty well. Build quality is superb. I have owned it for about 3/4 of a year, and I've done no repairs....Although it does now have a bit of moaning coming from under the hood....But that's just a slipping belt, an easy and cheap fix. Appearance wise, I think the exterior looks pretty good. I mainly like the aggressive look of the headlights. Interior is just as good. with 4 bucket seats in two-tone colors, I think it looks pretty sporty. The cost of ownership is amazing. Well built, and it gets really good gas mileage. The fun factor is lacking a bit, due to the slight lack of power.....But a few engine mods, or exhaust system, will help lots!

If you hate Ford

Mercury Cougar — Dislike? not fast enough but that can be fixed, not rwd or awd. and then don't make them anymore :(. It was built on a dead platform but they didn't want to step on the toes of the mustang, which is why they never came out with the Cougar S. Which was an AWD 200-220hp version of the Cougar with fancy trim like a lip kit and a 3.0L engine. That would have been awesome. But then again you can always build your own version of it too. Now I'm just rambling on. It's pretty dam good in the corners, as Jeremy Clarkson put it "it's no slouch" So it has decent acceleration, good braking and awesome cornering. Looks very hot inside and out, Doesn't need too many repairs, just general maintenance, for 10 years old not squeaks rattles etc. Easy maintenance for how hard I drive it, great gas mileage 30-36 highway, and 25 ish city (depending how hard you push it). It's lots of fun to drive, the pedals are placed perfectly for heel-toe downshifts, everything's in the right place. Defiantly a drivers car which is why it grows on you.

99 Mercury Cougar — Honestly its a great car, but as all cougar owners will tell you: there is no end to the things that will go wrong if you own one. constantly replacing stuff, trying to get it started. It's a money pit, unless you get lucky

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

Pros

Appearance, Handling, Relatively inexpensive to buy

Cons

Transmission, gas mileage

55

Once You Get Used To It, It's A Nice Car To Own — Gas mileage is pretty bad, it eats through it and gets somewhere between 13-19 mpg, whichever it feels like that day. Acceleration is a little sticky, but once you get out of first gear you're good to go. I have never had a problem with the braking, they're very responsive. Except for the sticking shifting, overall handling is very nice. Car is very fun to drive once you get used to it.

Pros

Handling, styling

if you dont like ford (than youre an idiot) or if you want something with a lil more power, then buy a stang.

Great Car And Easy To Find For Cheap Prices. Will Not Disappoint! — Great handling! Amazing feedback from the steering and holds the road very well. Goes fairly well in a straight line, but the automatic slush box thats in there takes a bit to downshift when the gas is pounded down while its moving. other than that i have no complaints, maintainence sucks sometims (ie alternator replacement) but im ok with that. build quality is good, by far better than that rice burning crap ive had before, although it does have some typical "ford noises" like rattles and squeaks but who cares? Ford power all the way!!!

Beast — i dislike the the fact that ford made this cougar front wheel drive, what a waste of a great muscle car that had always been in the past. over all i love the looks of this cougar and maybe ill get to play with the motor in the near future maybe take it a part.
