"Wit my experience with my little cougar I must say it was a very stable tough car, even for it's girly looks. Unlike the newer designs now days, the Mercury Cougar is made of steel. The traction was always great, and loved taking it for long trips. The only thing I would change about the little Cougar is the struts and the fact that my motor started knocking at any early time than expected. I did buy it used though."

"Nearly impossible to work on. After 90,000 miles, things started needing repair regularly. Engine has a problem with oil returning to pan causing oil light to come on. This problem was pretty much taken care of by switching to a full synthetic oil. It was hard to locate parts to replace struts and brake hoses. The sun roof mechanism broke, leaving it inoperable. Did I mention it is really hard to work on anything in the engine compartment.......There is not a large selection of tires available for the cougar. It is a very good looking car that was fun to drive. It had a lot of power and andled very nicely."

"The last of the Mohicans!! I bought the car used in 2007 with 70000 miles on it, in 2014 has 120000 miles. Today for reasons of economics, I am restoring the transmission, oil leaks and check engine lights for about $2400. Why,? Because the car was well kept, never garaged, but still looks like a 3 year old car even though it is 12 years old !! I still get compliments on the cars appearance. I put fake chrome on it and ' 67 Cougar Emblems on it ! My idea looks better than what Ford's ''better idea" was, especially when it is supposed to be celebrating the anniversary of an old muscle car!! When it's working well, it's fun to drive with the exception of a too wide turning circle. Inside it lacks more compartments for storage but the lift back trunk can get a 2x4 in it as well as an old boxy 32inch TV. I hope someday it will be worth more, because it's too good to be parted out!!!"
