Cry for Help
Well, a month or so ago I was looking at getting a very clean zx5 hatch, but just before i went to buy it someone picked her up:/ The good part of the story though is a family friend of ours was selling their '99 cougar for only 1000 bucks, which i just picked up and plated yesterday, my question though is what are some good websites to order parts (internal/external) from? i was lookin to to get a carbon fiber hood as well for the cougar but i cant find one that doesnt seem sketchy(ebay) i did look at extreme dimensions and they had a really nice carbon fiber hatch which i may pick up but id like a hood as well to match. I figured id come to you guys/gals with my question because this is one of the best communities ive been a part of, thanks! [ffrocks]

that's the first time I learned about this car, looks good on photos.... anyone can tell me why are they so dirt cheap ?

Sabatino31 09-16-2012 11:00 AM

i honestly am not too sure why theyre so cheap in general, i got mine for only 1000 bucks, no rust whatsoever, a few dings here and there but i mean, its from '99, it needs some work done under the hood but other then that the interior is almost perfect, im definitely not gonna complain about a thousand dollar car!

My ex has a 2001 Cougar. Pain in the ass. When something goes wrong on those cars, about 15 things go wrong at once. She never really had any major issues that I can remember, but there was always something small and annoying that needed to be fixed. And the car was taken care of.

Other than that, they're cool little cars. I hated the placement of the rear view mirror, though. And the windshield isn't very tall. Definitely made for chicks lol.

Really my only complaints.

they are cheap because they arent very popular. werent when they came out. kinda sad. i though t they were cool looking.

ya I googled around and the reliability seems to be the reason for the low price.

Be wary of the V6 versions as sometimes the head gaskets on that 2.5 Duratec were a PITA to work on.
