“Feels like a new car”

Written on: 31/08/2012 by dragonmurphy69 (1 review written)

Got my 2000 cougar in 2012 with just 32k on the clock, i work in the motor trade and drive all the new cars daily and none of them put a smile on my face like my cougar does, so what it only does around 35mpg but for a v6 and the pleasure it gives, who cares, with its nippy 2.5 v6 170bhp and giving a very nice growl mmmmmmmmmmmmm, drive thru essex with one and you have all the girls stuck to it!!! to sum up, its a real drivers car, good steering good brakes, beautiful suspension, looks… Read Full Review

“Bought one year ago and have had endless problems,...”

Written on: 14/01/2011

Bought one year ago and have had endless problems, including suspension, leaking boot and flooded passenger footwell, wheel bearings wearing quickly, parts are expensive and hard to come by (here in Ireland, although not much better in uk either) latest problem was with flywheel - cost '1500 inc labour. So have had to scrap the car as this is about the current price of one that works! When it did work it was comfortable but very bad on fuel, approx 18mpg on average but less when in traffic and… Read Full Review

Unforunate for you to have ended up with a dud. Thankfully, seems to be the only bad review i've read.

Also...MPG - its a 2.5 (really 2.6 if we're honest) V6, what did you expect?

Written on: 23/10/2010

I was looking for a decent kind of motor that fitted my personality and After 3 visits to the same car sales place the big cat tempted me. 24v V6 with a custom chrome rear-split exhaust, it just hooked me in. Just spent £930 getting the front tyres replaced, passenger front-bearing, both front hub/discs and brake pads replaced, 2 bushes, 2 rear brake pads, full service and total check with a blue-fin upgrade for the map. Now she purrs like a dream and with the roar of the K and N air filter and… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2010

Truly amazing car for the money. Bought last November for £2150. 2 owner, 43,594 miles with full history. It's a beautiful, roomy, GT cruiser that eats tarmac with consumate ease. I love driving on long open roads and just driving and driving and driving...! Around town there's nothing better than a summer's day with the windows down, rock n roll blaring from the cd player and just cruising through the traffic to your destination. And of course all of this with a wide appreciative grin. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/02/2010

I have the V6 version with X pack - purchased with 98k for 1400 quid = came with full service, new tyres, pads and an up-rated stainless steel exhaust (worth 400 intial thought there is something wrong her) - bought as a gap filling car, while I choice something boring.

Since done close to 28k motorway miles, in that time a new alternator + it small leak on power steering 40 quid fixed that (this is common and a replacement filter needed).

Bullet proof engineering, reliable, comfortable… Read Full Review

“The Cougar has been utterly reliable, it's not as...”

Written on: 27/01/2010

The Cougar has been utterly reliable, it's not as expensive to run as one would expect from a V6, driven at standard motorway speeds I've seen nearly 40mpg and you really don't need to drive it hard as it has plenty of low and mid-range torque. It will plod along at 30mph in 4th gear, 90 mph is achieved in 5th gear at just below 4,000 rpm, which is only just at the beginning of the main power band.


Running costs are lighter than most equivalent sports/coupe's as the basic car is really a… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2009

I bought my Cougar V6 24v 18 months ago with 50k miles on the clock with service history and only one owner and paid only £1600 for it, although today you can pick them up much cheaper - some going for as little as £850. I have found the Cougar to be a really great drive and lots of fun and ofcourse you get the looks as there are not that many left on the road (not that Ford really marketed them properly). I have had people comment - is it a Jaguar? lol. It's not a boy racres dream, but a… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/07/2009

My Cougar is the 2.5 V6 X pack 2000 Silver Automatic which I brought 10 months ago with 56K miles on the clock from a second owner. What a lovelly coupe ford have produced - not sure why it was not more popular? Stylish, sexy, robust, spacious, practical and economical comes to mind. Yes it has its weaknesses as many cars do - visibilty when reversing, heavy doors, tiny wing mirrors, special tyres. But the shear drivability (driving experience - if thats a word) of this coupe is amazing -… Read Full Review

I love my Ford Cougar V6 24v. Had it 18 months and will keep it till it dies. Drive is fantastic although a little twitchy around the bends but wider tyres soon sorted that problem. Very very comfy on long drives and the Cougar X heated seats are a dream in the winter… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2009 by ronwallwork (1 review written)

I've owned my 2.5L V6 Ford Cougar since April 2001 and still get a tremendous buzz from driving it. It has everything I want from a car...roomy, comfortable and I think that V6 Duratec engine makes such a great roar under full throttle!

Being based on the MkII Mondeo, it shares many of the mechanical parts and so repair costs (not that I've needed many) seem to be reasonable to me. Apart from routine servicing I've only ever had to replace the front brake pads, even the battery and exhaust… Read Full Review
