Lasted me 13 years so far.
I bought this car used while in college in 2007 for $2,000. Over the last 13 years, I spent almost as much in repairs. $4,000 total for a vehicle that has lasted 13 years can't be beat. It has finally reached a point where repair costs are more than the car is worth, so I'm shopping for another vehicle, a 4x4 SUV or truck this time.
Very reliable Car
This car is perfect for getting to and from work. It runs great and is dependable. I purchased from a friend who was original owner. Car had always been maintained with oil changes and maintenance.
They don't make them like this any more. Stylish and practical. Factory ordered her, and will hate to see her go! A member of the family.
Still love this car after 23 years.
Absolutely love this car. I will never get rid of my Mercury Cougar. Period. My friends are amazed on how many years I have had my car.
Longest lasting car I have ever owned.
I bought this car in 2007 during my final semester in college and has lasted me over a decade. It only cost $2000 and had 68K original miles when I bought it. Other than tires, belts, and brakes, the only things I have had to replace are the radiator, radiator fan, starter, & alternator. Not bad for a car that is now 24 years old.
1994 Mercury Cougar
The 94 Mercury Cougar is a one of a kind car,a cool cat with 4.6 V-8 cylinder engine that purs when start. The Cougar is the Thunderbird cousin. A great classic car to own.
Oldie Keeps It's Purr...
I had my Passat Wagon stolen, it took almost a year to find a relatively inexpensive replacement car, 1st of all STATION WAGONS are a rare find, particularly domestic 1's.After many cars.com searches & seeing alot of **** in this field, decided to go with a Thunderbird or Cougar-pre 1998 as large enough for my 2 cockers(back seat-wise),and lacks all the gadgetry of newer models(i.e."navigation").I found this car in a suburb of San Diego, nice dry warm weather & SoCal smooth roads. It has been well kept & had only 108K miles(6 to 7K miles Yrly), everything works perfectly! 3.8 V-6 still purrs, getting about 16-17 MPG STILL! Great car for under $4K !
Fast ,Dependable,W/235x15 tires rides like Lincoln
Had mine for over100,000 miles.Great road Ability,Handling especially on long trips,Ice an snow,with the bigger tires really makes a difference R J Marth
Owned a 94 Cougar for years. 4.6 V8. Totally loaded with premium stereo, power everything, leather, moonroof, climate control, traction control etc. Outstanding car. Put 200k+ on mine before I sold it, replaced one alternator at 145k, one idler pully at 160k, Idle air control valve at 140k. Car was crazy fast by 1994 car standards, not so much now. Changing the rear end gears from stock 2.78 to 3.55 or 3.73 makes a huge difference, but cuts gas mileage a good bit. Stock the car got 30mpg easy, closer to 28 at 200k miles on the hwy. sub 20's though in town. Long wheelbase and indep. rear suspension made this car ride like a dream, and handled really well considering its heavy weight. Quality was top notch, no rust when I sold it, paint was nice, interior cleaned up like new when I had it detailed. Interior is fantastic. Comfortable, and whole dash cluster is situated like you are in a cockpit, all easy to reach and see. Easy to get in and out of with it's giant doors, even for people in the back. had no problem with my kids in this car, and felt they were very safe with the door pillar where it is. Car was pretty good in the winter even being RWD, I just put 50 lbs of sandbag in the trunk and bought some snow tires, never had any issues. Overall car was super reliable, super comfortable, and fun to drive.
fun to drive
The only thing are the cupholders.Very inconvenient for driver front passenger.otherwise a very good vehicle...Just bought it with 44000 miles.
