Alright, so far since I've owned the Coug (which has only been 2 months) I've had the following done:

*Fuel Pump - Dealer covered it since it went out the day after I bought it...
*Power window regulators (both sides) - Dealer covered since it they crapped out a week after I bought it...
*PS Pump - Covered under the extended warranty I bought (cost $100 deductible)...

Now on my way to work this morning the check engine light comes on. ? Running as smooth as can be though. So I had to take her in and drop it off and the dealership. They gave me a freakin' Escort as a rental. Talk about adding insult to injury!!!! So I'm hoping it's something minor, because I was informed that usually the check engine light trips because of an emmisions problem. Guess what? My warranty doesn't cover emmissions!!! Maybe it'll be a O2 sensor or something minor. I'll update yall's later... :mad:

I'm on my 9th fuel pump :(

Other than that my car was overheating when I first bought it. The dealer didn't plug the damn fans in... Bishes.

Just got my Coug back. Add catalytic converter to the list...

Didn't cost me a penny!!! He said it was covered under an emmisions warranty!!! Yay for me! Maybe that was why I smelled a strong gas smell in the morning when I first started it up...???
