Pros: "modern style, fun and reliable (so far) to drive."

Cons: "rear visibility"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this used at 60,000 in CA. Drove it without any problems for a couple of years, towed it to NY... drove it there and then stored it there for 7 years. Been driving it here in MD...... STILL no problems (actually just the normal brake replacement, re-do the Freon ... needed a fuel pump after the storage. Most people can't believe how old this car is. It's really a cute sized sporty one... has a sporty feel too. The ONLY thing I'm not thrilled with is the very dark tinted rear hatch window. It looks nice, but hinders rear visibility. Gas mileage? 20-30 mpg...The faster I go, the better mileage it gets... OOPS - does get a ticket here and there."

"This car has been a GREAT car goes in the snow when 4 wheel drive trucks couldn't. Great gas mileage and just fun to drive. No problems with it for mechanics. Have spent little on it for repairs over 13 years. Will gladly sell it to someone for their first car."

"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."
