Family Muscle Car by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/11/2010. Trim: 1996 Mercury Cougar Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: This is my first car that my parents bought for me. We found it just outside the suburbs with 123,000 miles. It had two broken headgaskets and need new door hinges, but we got it all fixed cheap and bought the car cheap. NO RUST!!! It's 14 years old with no rust!!! The engine is a devilish low rumble and has the speed of a mustang! I'm going to keep this car forever. Putting in a car show soon. Unbelievable, a must buy!
Cons: Not good for winters. Absolutely no traction.
Overall review: My friends are all jealous of my ride. It has the huge V-8 and my friend's dad who worked to fix it envies me.

It's okay. by little momma from S.C. on 07/23/2003. Trim: 1996 Mercury Cougar XR-7, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I like the power accessories & the power in the engine. Great get up & go. Handles pretty well - I'd like it to be tighter, probably more dangerous that way though. Feels pretty safe for me & my three kids. I like the leather streeing wheel & seat trim. Great trunk space.
Cons: Too big for me personally, I can't see either end of the car & I bump into things alot. Not enough room in the back for my big kids - two tune ups ($250 each), one brake job ($130 - from a friend), & two oxygen sonsors replaced ($350 - I've never even heard of those) & four new tires beacuse of baldness($400) All in only 3 years. Check engine light STILL on. The placement of the cup holders is a pain in the..... elbow.
Overall review: It feels safe and it runs like a race car, but I don't care for the looks because it makes driving more difficult for me. I am a small woman & this vehicle is entirely too big for me. Would like to sell it but can't get a decent offer that would make it right.
