I have a 1995 Mercury Cougar XR7 (3.8L V6) that started having transmission problems when it had 50,000 miles on it. It shifts hard and sometimes "bucks" in passing gear. I have been told that Ford knows these transmissions are junk but they won't do anything about them. The advice I got from my transmission guy was to let it blow then he would fix it. The air conditioner has also quit working in this car. I know one thing for sure; I will never buy another Ford Motor Company Product, EVER. I will also tell everyone who will listen to me about my experience with this car. If you can't afford to lose money, DO NOT BUY A FORD, LINCOLN, MERCURY PRODUCT!
