Cougar 6-cyl

  • 126,000 miles
My daughter has a 2002 Mercury Cougar and is risking her life as well as others lives every time she gets inside that car. Her Cougar her been having issues for months now, and even though we have spent hundreds of dollars trying to make the car safer for her, nothing is working. Our last straw was three days ago, when the car stalled on her on the highway. She was traveling about 45 miles per hour, when the car stalled and shut off leaving her stranded waiting for the tow truck. Her car, for months, has been surging while at complete stops, and has been shutting off while at a stand still. We've tried fixing many things, but nothing seems to be fixing the issue. After doing extensive research, I have come to realize that many others are having the same issues. Can someone do something about this please"? its clearly an on-going issue and is costing people lots of money. Her car is currently back at the dealership where we purchased the car, and is undergoing diagnostics. We were already told that her car was not included in the recall, and we will have to pay for even more work, out of pocket. Please help.. why was it not included in the recall, seeing that it is having the same problems"!
