What used Ford Cougar coupe will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Ford Cougar coupe?
The V6 may have considerably more power and performance, but you don't pay too dearly for the added oomph.
You can expect fuel economy of 30.0mpg from the V6 and around 34.0mpg for the 2.0-litre, so neither is too thirsty. The two are also not far apart on insurance, with the 2.0 falling into group 11 and the V6 group 14.
Servicing at a Ford main agent is not as expensive as some other mainstream manufacturers' garages, but you're likely to save by going to an independent. There are plenty of Ford specialists around the country, and because the Cougar has its roots in the Mondeo, almost any competent mechanic can look after one.
Parts prices for the Cougar are reasonable and any repairs should not cost any more than for a Mondeo.
