    Love This Car!!! — I bought this car after my 97 mustang was totalled and I adore this car! I have been able to find tons of mods with little effort and is easy to fix personally (I am a chick with minor expeirence). I love the sleek style and for a 4cyl my little 5 speed is QUICK and hugs turns! I have had no issues and has 181xxx miles. The only issue i ran into was i had to replace the rear hatch support but took maybe 45mins. I highly reccommend it best bang for your buck!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Low cost maintence, good mods, easy to fix

    Cons: little bit of ratteling upon start up

    My Review On My Couger — Performance is great for everyday driving. Acceleration is energetic. Braking is very good, almost had an accident once and the brakes did they're job nicely. Handling is very smoothe, not fussey, very fun around corners. Cant comment much on the build quality, not much of a grease monkey but I did need a new rear catilitic converter recently. Appearance is overall great, it does have somewhat of a round oval shape, but still at most angels it looks sporty and stylish. Interior looks sports car like, air vents set the tone of the interior for me. Gas milage isn't anything special, I'm averaging 19 MPG. The car overall is fun to drive, theirs a sense of speed as the angine revs, yet also of relaxation on a quiet road, the ride is pretty smooth given the age.

    Pros: A fun sporty car for somebody on a budget.

    Cons: Had to replace the rear catilitic converter. Gas mileage isn't the best.

    I've Really Enjoyed Owining This Car — Great car, the zetec isnt the most powerful engine but it's got aftermarket potential. Mine is now supercharged. Handling is amazing with the aftermarket goodies I've added. Build quality is great, with the big stereo it doesnt rattle up the interior. Reliability is amazing, no major repairs needed, swapped to a focus motor with 340 000 km on it and it was still running strong. Parts are cheap and it looks amazing, it's aged very well.

    Pros: The Handling!

    Cons: Not much aftermarket, small back seats.

    Good Car, Much Like Others, With A Little Of Routine Maintanence It Makes A Great Car — Fun car. slightly underpowered 2.5 although has potential and is a great daily driver. Low end acceleration is a little doggy. around 3500 when the secondary plentums open the 2.5 comes to life. Braking is quite good. I have drilled and sloted rotors. Appearance is nice, suttle body line transition with rounded body, much like the 2g eclipse. car is very fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun. good fuel milage

    Cons: Transmission. The atx and mtx-75 had issue with differentials

    2000 Mercury Cougar - 30+ Mpg — For a 2.0l 4 cylinder, you can't really complain. If you're looking for speed, look elsewhere obviously. The cougar tops out at 110mph where the fuel is cut off to prevent you from going any faster. I personally installed an intake and exhaust a few months after buying the car and noticed that around 50mph I could get around 40-45mpg. The car had a digital dash readout of the outside temperature, trip odometer and gas mileage. If you start the car holding down the unit and reset button you could get the CEL codes, a digital readout of the RPMs and the engine temp. I loved this car and regret selling it, but I was naive then and thought that I'd enjoy having something with acceleration.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage, storage space

    Cons: none

    Good Car, Would Reccomend It. — Good car, 25-30mpg , sleek appearance. Brakes are good, but could be better. Low maintenence. I have fun driving this car. Car is quick, but not fast. Fun to fly around those curves in ;). Easy car to modify and make your own.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good gas mileage, safe, reliable.

    Cons: Its automatic. I want manual.

    Cougar Reliable! — Fairly reliable car and have owned for 9 years, just keep getting regular oil changes etc. Just starting to replace parts now, such as shocks, and breaks. Gas mileage is average. Very happy with the overall styling and design, it still looks good compared to others I see on the road today. I'm sorry they don't make these cars anymore!

    Pros: Great design, comfort, and handling.

    Cons: Sun Roof jammed!
