The 2002 Mercury Cougar was my first car, and it was not without faults. The first thing I noticed about was its style. It came with some good looking flare, which was what attracted me to it in the first place. It is very sleek, almost begging to be driven. Once in the seat, it had an extremely comfortable feel to it. There was plenty of room for me and 3 other friends. The Cougar was perfect for any kind of driving, but it shined when you wanted to go out with friends, as there was more than enough space to go around for a coupe model. Driving the car was also a great time, as it had some pep to it when you stepped on the gas. It had a V6 engine, capable of moving fast when needed.

Pros
This vehicle wasn't as expensive as similar models who offered the same performance. It was also a nice comfortable ride. There was room for a few friends, making it an even bigger bargain. Fuel economy wasn't egregious, which was also nice with the rising price of oil.
Cons

The car handles well, and drives well in bad weather. The angle to the ground is too low, though, so it makes it difficult to see the lines on the road if it's dark and wet outside.
Story
Drove across the country twice in this car.
Pros
It's sporty and fun. Large trunk space.
Cons
Hard to see the lines on the road if it's dark and wet.
