My Cougar — I have loved this car until this recent problem has had it parked for over a year, has cost me about $1500 in parts and is still not fixed!! I haven't had to do much on this car prior to this, but now am beyond frustrated!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It is a sporty looking car and handles very well.

Cons: Hard getting in and out of the back seat for passengers.

Abomination — None of the general repairs are easy to work on. There are no repair manuals available at auto parts stores. The repairs are expensive which is why I try and do what I can to save some money. Changine the oil is the easiest.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: motor responds very well

Cons: no repair manuals available for this car. It's difficult to work on

Decent Summer Cruising Car. — Not gonna rock anyone's world, but the car gets the job done. The V6 is definitely nice, but it guzzles gas like my stepdad guzzles Jim Beam. Take it out for a drive on a summer day with the music up and windows down, and you'll fall in love.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks nice and sporty and handles well. Front seats are very comfortable. Stock audio with 6 disc changer is surprisingly robust. Hatchback and folding rear seats allow a shocking amount of storage capacity.

Cons: No back seat legroom, as it is a coupe. Fuel economy is very poor for a small car (roughly 18-20 unless you're on the interstate)

I Dont Know What Its Asking For Here — I'ts a strong car, but its really hard to upgrade if you have the V6 model because there's no room for anything, if you want to change a part in it you have to remove alot of stuff and for the price, its not a bad car at all

Pros: sturdy

Cons: maintanence

Nice Car While It Lasted. — Bought one with 123K miles on it and it ran great and had no problems, drove it for a week and a half and the engine blew up. Car needed suspension repair when I test drove it I made sure the deal knew it needed repair and got it fixed.

Pros: Looks great (better than the 2000 model)

Cons: Engine blew after 11 days of ownership. Doesnt handle as well as the Ford Probe, but hey It's an american car.

Great Car Id Buy Another On, But It Will Be A Five Speed Next Time — its an auto so its not all that. doesnt need repairs hardly ever. as long as you maintain it properly. the exterior is pretty slick looking, the interior is just as nice. gas mileage is decent, 26 to 32 mpg, the car handles amazingly, so its a blast to drive, just slap on some toyo tires

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: this is my daily driver, very reliable

Cons: none, unless you dont like sporty looking coupes

Great Daily Driver — Good steering, bad turning radius, but handles very well on fast turns. Good pickup without the A/C, very comfortable and smooth on the interstate. Fairly decent gas mileage. Excellent braking. Gorgeous inside and out. Potenzas help the handling, cheap tires are too loud. Very fun to drive, especially with the sunroof open.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles very well

Cons: Horrible turning radius, A/C kills pickup
