Default 1999 Mercury Cougar

Update: Just found out about kbb so I got an estimate from that.



I'm looking to sell/trade my Mercury Cougar for a truck. I'm gonna miss my ~30mpg but according to my mom, who drives the car more than me, it's not very good in the snow so I'm going to get a 4x4 truck.
The car has a small hole or two on the seats from the previous owner but other than that the interior is fine.
It's got 119k miles on it.
Last I knew, the AC doesn't work. Not sure why.
We bought it wrecked so it's got an R title.
We recently replaced the brake calipers and we're replacing the brake line currently.

I'm not much of a car guru so I don't really know what to ask for it. If you want any more info on it, just let me know.

Thank in advance.

Driving in the snow isn't worth the crappy MPG of a 4x4. I drove a 1994 Lumina with 200k miles on it with bald tires and I came out ok(and i'm talking like a foot of snow). Just can't drive like an idiot. Just my 2 cents.

I get 15-19MPG out of my 1989 F-150 Lariat 4x4...

Not much worse than a Lumina in the snow and can go way farther.

I net 20-22 in mine, 16 in 4x4 mode which I rarely turn on because snow is much more fun in rear wheel drive.

You guys get off topic easy

But I appreciate the opinions. I'll give it a second thought but either way, I'm not sure what to ask for it.

Has it been wrecked or just painted red on the front?

The red parts are some of what we replaced.
