Default What do you think of Cougars?

I'm looking at a 99 Cougar right now, it is an automatic
Is this car a 2 or 3 door car?
It does have a V6 right?
FWD?

Are they reliable for the most part? Has 130k on it.

They're ok. No worse than any other car of that era in terms of reliability.


That being said.......they aren't terribly fun to drive.

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

lol if you're going to try to be witty, make an attempt to make sense
typically women who are into younger guys are going to make an effort looking pretty and unless your idea of attractive is dames donning grey hairs, don't go there.

i just didnt know they had mazda motors :\

Yeah, a lot of small Fords have Mazda motors, as Ford owns Mazda..

The Focus and the Escort I believe do.
