    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.

    Sporty — Had problems with dealer and quality of replacement parts. Light for "bulb out" stayed on. Nice to drive but too many trips to the dealer. Ford dealers are 455holes.

    Pros: Sporty

    Cons: it's a Ford/Mercury. Electrical problems, some replacement part manufacturers have low
    quality control

    Has Great Handling And Decent Acceration — the mercury cougar was always a good car since the late 60's. it kept within muscle car standards even during the oil crisis of the 80's. with technology advancing everyday the cougar has improved every spec from performance to audio to aerodynamics. the cougar does have a future in the pony car wars.

    Beautiful. — I adore this cute thing. So what if this car has a V6 engine & accelerates fast? I've heard things like, "It's a guy's car, blah blah blah." I'm a girl & I drive it. I love it. It's nice to be driving around in the summer with the mini sun roof open & I am so glad there is a built in, CD player that came with the car because, although, the car has a radio system in it, I dislike what radio stations play & because I don't have control over what I want to listen to. I bought this as a used car & it is in great condition, except for the battery so I had replaced it with a new one. I love the color of the car too. It says it is maroon in color, but it looks more red to me. So yes, the end.

    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: Fun, sporty, andquick

    Cons: The car decides when i wants to start
