Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 Mercury Cougar Special Edition
Appearance. I love how the car looks, WHEN it works it drives great. Good pep, fast, and a lot of fun to drive.
Every thing but the appearance. I can't belive it just hasn't blown up yet. Any advise is welcome!
I bought my car with 17,000 miles on it, all leather two toned seats, sun roof, special edition front scoup, all together it's a beautiful car. However, a short six months after I bought it the battery light, followed by the check enging light went on. So I took it in and it turns out it needed and entire new motor!! After batteling with the dealership they decided to replace it free of charge. Another six months goes by the transmission goes out and once again is replaced, free of charge. A year goes by and as I'm on the road out of town overnight, the check enging light turns on which coinciendeltly happened to be the last day of my warrenty. So, when I got back I took it to the dealer and suprise it needs another new transmission, but now they decide not to cover the cost. This car has been an absolute nightmere, I don't drive the car hard what so ever, and always on top of maintaince. This car is obviously a lemon. I'm currently batteling with the dealership to cover the cost of the transmission that has gone out again with only 36,000 miles on it. How's that for a horror story, thanks Ford!
