I could just not ever get into the 11th gen. It was a lot better than the last Cougar though, which to me seemed like a cheap import. For me the most damning thing about the 11th gen beyond the performance, was the top. Removable was just NOT the way to go. Could have easily folded into trunk. I think they have leaking problems too. I saw one recently in a parking lot that had so much condensation inside it was dripping down all the windows. One thing I will say to their credit is they have done fairly well holding on to their resale value... although they were around $40k to begin with.
