    Purrrrrrrrrrrrfect For Me ;} — It looks like a sports car...corners like a golf cart and purrs like a coug and drinks very little. Gotta love a car that asks for nothing and gives everything. Can't complain...ask me again though in a year ;) As for expensis...it is a ford product so your servicing needs will be cheaper than the competition. Alternators are an issue because of location and if you ever have to replace the belts....eeek. Other than that, they are a very reliable, sporty, sleek looking ride. Oh yeah, try ta get your paws on the 4...and stay away from the vr6...they come with a road side kit and a jar of vaseline fer the many servicng needs you'll have ;}

    Pros: Sleek body, economical on fuel, futuristic interior design, comfortable front seats

    Cons: Rear seats eat passengers, coffee holder is lethal and it's a "FORD!"

    It's Nothing To Write Home About. — First brand new car that I had ever owned and was awesome performance wise but as the years have gone on, obviously the performance has gone down with wear. It's a FORD, so fix or repair daily pretty much sums it up. The tracks on the sunroof are made of plastic so if they break you have to buy a whole new assembly. Not the case with mine, but I have a dead spot in the motor so no more sunroof for me.

    Pros: That it is paid off.

    Cons: It isnt new, but I dont miss the payment

    Bub — I love my car, mostly because it was my Yia Yia's, and she left it to me when she passed away. But also because I have a kickin' sound system, and it's very sporty. I also love the lines...the look of a sports car at a more affordable price. Oh yea and it averages about 20 miles to the gallon :)

    Pros: Kickin' sound system, sporty, reliable, low miles.

    Cons: Older.

    1999 Cougar — Nice and sporty. Great handling. About the same excel as a Prelude, if not more. More torque than other cars in its class. Bullet proof engine. Some ppl complain about it being too noisey on the road but I like it. the 99-00 years have a faulty moon roof that breaks after about 100k miles and cost about $1200 to fix. the 01-02 models were fixed. Overall I'm satisfied over my cougar investment.

    Pros: great torque and handling.

    Cons: Loud on the road and moonroof prob.

    Great Car, Great Looking, Mechanically... Questionable? — This car was great it handled well and had close to 30 miles to the gallon. It is a decently light car but handled great in the winter...gooo front wheel drive. Emissions were terrible to fix ($800) put a lot of money into a car i just couldn't afford. Maybe if I had more money?

    Pros: Handling and gas economy

    Cons: Mechanics..period

    I Loved This Toy Of A Car! — Very exciting car. Very quick for what is a rather small engine. (2.5L V6) Handled really well, easily controlled, quick steering, VERY strong brakes. Neat look with the bubble shaped headlights and taillights.

    Pros: Quick, attractive exterior and interior, functional trip and mileage computer.

    Cons: Smal interior, backseat not comfortable for anyone over 5'9"

    Handles Well — very good looking car that can handle very well but needs a bigger aftermarket and isnt fast even with mods

    Pros: looks great and handle like a beast with modifications

    Cons: not a big aftermarket, a cramp engine bay and not enough power

    Cougar! — A great looking car, comes with air con and sun roof as standard. Spacious in the front and at the back, huge boot and reasonable fuel economy (bearing in mind its age!) Even if it's a bit slow for its fast looks, I thoroughly enjoy driving her.

    Pros: looks
    equipment
    no faults (touch wood) except for age-related ones

    Cons: acceleration
    scratches

    The First Car I Got As A Present For Graduating High School And Moving To Calgary. — Nice car, been with me since Sep 2000. Haven't had any serious mechanical issues with it.... except for that oopsie with punching a hole in the oil pan.... Interior is black and gray, panels are a little cheap looking, but nice enough... really badly designed cup holder in the front. Automatic transmission isn't as smooth as I'd like it to be. Exterior is black, small spoiler is ok, front fascia and headlights look nice, rear end looks a little big, but it's up to what your taste is like.

    Pros: Nice sounding engine, nice looking front end, and dependable (for me at least).

    Cons: Underpowered, not very customizable, AUTOMATIC!!!, and no longer produced.
