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"

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.

Solid First Car. — Great handling short wheelbase car, powered by a reliable Ford 2L Zetec. Easily modified for performance, all of the 4cyl. models come in a manual transmission. The uni-body design and simple nonindependent front and rear suspensions made for easy upgrading. Overall great little zippy American made car.

Pros: Great handling and strong top end.

Cons: Absolutely no low end to speak of, but typical of all American four cylinder engines.

The Car Is Reliable And Suits My Purposes. — Well this car is decent, and keeps me going around. It is really dependable to always start. It might be a ford but it will still get you from point a to b and back to A

Pros: The sterio, and how the interior is designed

Cons: High milage and needs a little maintanence

Fun To Drive, Cruise Or Just Floor It! — Good quality car I would say not too shabby. Little problems here and there but what car doesn't right? Mine is black with 5% tint on all window's and 35% on the front windshield... i know i know tisk tisk but it looks good! lol I got tint on headlights, tail lights, and any other visible light outside of the car. The only thing that is actually not black are the rims... yet. Other than that it's all stock!

Pros: Fun to drive, runs well, reliable.

Cons: Minor problems mainly common on all vehicles.
