    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome all around car, grows on you like a puppy.

    Cons: If you hate Ford

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Appearance, Handling, Relatively inexpensive to buy

    Cons: Transmission, gas mileage

    I Love It. — Everything about it i love, the only thing about it is the acceleration is a little low. I want to do some work on it. It hasn't needed alot of repairs but it's a very solid car. Gas mileage is very good for a V6 and maintenance is very easy. It's a very fun car to drive as well.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 5 speed and how nice it handles

    Cons: fwd and acceleration

    Epic Fail — To be honest.. this is a decent car. Not performance wise, but its okay, got me from a to b. Some people found it stylish, and nice..? EPIC FAIL with the altenator. Replaced it 3 times, in 2 years. Fun to drive if you like going nowhere quick. Duratec.... another epic fail. Dont know how a car company can make cars for a 100 years and mess up this bad. Powered by the smallest v6 ever.. another joke. Small but there is available aftermarket parts. Some people did like this car... ex. cougarfest.

    Pros: ummm projector headlights stock.

    Cons: 170hp V6???!!!? wtf. alt

    Drift Jorge — The thing about my car is the suspension is terrible but other than that the car accelerates pretty good and can get up to 100 in less than 10 seconds so it's good. I like the body too it looks aerodynamic and I love drifting with it in the SNOW!!!!

    Pros: engine

    Cons: suspension

    Ok Car...not Great — Ok car. Performs alright. Eats car parts like a kid eating candy. Quality of the car is a little on the downside. I usually have to fix it about every 6 mos to a year. It's usually something expensive. There are no cheap parts for it like a Honda or some other foreign car.

    Pros: Cost about $30-40 to fill up

    Cons: Eats car parts like they're nothing

    Mycougar — Lovee my car! Had a few problems with it but that all comes with age and mods. Been quick easy fixes and I will probably never sell the car. Haha Performance is great and I love the way it looks..sporty and sleak. Nice body line. Get average fuel mileage for the year of the car. Car is very fun to drive. Would love to go to the nines with this car, but I am in school and cannot afford it.

    Pros: Great car.. built FORD tough!

    Cons: It is old with high mileage.
