Cougar? I bought mine eighteen months ago and have clocked up 40,000 miles since. Average service cost £120 including valet, engine flush and the option where the mechanics hug your car and say nice things to it for eight minutes. 28mpg around town, 35mpg longer distance mixed. Mondeo costs, grr like a tigerrr looks. Nothing has fallen off, the only fault to date has been the horn which caught some nasty virus last honk and now sounds like Noddy in Toytown on roadrage day. Ride is a little firm but then it does corner flatter than a pint left out overnight. Legal motorway speeds - 2500rpm. Illegal motorway speeds - far too easy. Not the fastest accelerating thing since the spaceshuttle but then, with the automatic, all you have to do is plant your welly on the pedal. Tyres a little hard to come by but then that has more to do with Michelin than Ford. Sad little refugee from a GM cloning lab that I am - I love it. Go buy one! Go buy two! Heck - just tell the salesperson to keep 'em coming. NB - Ford... More colours please.
