The new Cougers and only fast when stick and even then they arent terribly fast. The last time a Couger was fast was in 96 when they had a 302 option. I wouldnt worrie about this car its like a 3.1 Cav. but bigger . Smoke it like a Geo Metro.

One of those ugly new ones? I think they run high 16'*, they are too dang heavy for that little V6. Mmmm! Cougar!
