For Sale: 2000 Mercury Cougar in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 2000 Mercury Cougar is a low-mileage one-owner car that's loaded with the best features and offered for a value price. It's the kind of young classic that offers a nice balance of modern driving dynamics in a premium package.

The Mercury name was all about adding an extra level of luxury without reaching a Lincoln level of plushness. And this final-generation Cougar seemed to represent that perfectly. After all, Lincoln would never have anything that looked this sleekly aggressive on its lot, but the subtle crease in the hood and sides give this a more thoughtful presentation than the average mainstream coupe. It's a similar feeling to the Dark Tourmaline paint. It has a deep tone for a sophisticated style, and there's even a full pinstripe. But the metallic element lets it pop with a touch of rebellion. This example has averaged under 3,400 miles annually and has been one-owner care. So it makes for a coupe where the original finish still knows how to have an attractive shine. Smoked headlamps, 16-inch alloys, and a well-integrated spoiler are all part of a distinct style that was absolutely made to be sporty.

The gray interior looks good against the exterior green, and the perforated upholstery looks European-inspired. It's loaded with a luxury level of features that includes power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, ABS, a tilt column, electric rear defogger, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. There are thoughtful details like the classic Cougar badge embedded in the sculpted doors. Another way this one proves it's a Mercury is with the rear seats. They are tight but still far more comfortable with the individual bucket seat style. And you even have a trunk that is ready for a week's worth of bags. So it's thoughtfully useful compared to most other sports cars.

Under the hood is the optional 2.5-liter fuel-injected motor. It was nice to upgrade to the V6 because you got a multi-valve motor that also had a hardy reputation. It makes for the right mix of sporty get-up-and-go when you want it, and then it also nicely settles into easy cruising comfort when you just want a proper Mercury. The same goes for the four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and fully independent suspension are also there to deliver a quality and nimble feeling on the road.

The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual. This is premium Mercury features in a sporty and fun package. So at a price like this, you don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
