Hi everyone. I'm considering buying a maroon 99. It's got all the right stuff but I'm very concerned about getting at least 5 trouble free years out of the car. I know nobody has a crystal ball but what kind of track record do these newer cougars have. And what year and why did they stop production?
thanks, mikee

Well, further research indicates that they're Lemons.Plagued with wiring and electrical problems. I hope this helps somebody.
Thanks anyway.

They must use the Mitshubishi electronics like my wife's old Probe GT did. Mitshhubishi always made crappy electricals and they still do. Why Ford is so cheap to use them I'll never know.
