1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

I have owed my SVT for 4+ years. Despite (stupidly) overpaying for the car (sleazy, high-pressure dealer) I have thouroughly enjoyed it. It has enough power to press and still looks good enough to turn heads 5 years later. Handeling is superb. There have been a few minor problems with the moonroof and driver seat, but other than that the car has been trouble free. Snow tires are necessary in the winter.

Best Features

The engine is an excellent peice of engineering and sounds sweet...The exterior styling is sharp and it is a pleasure to drive...Starts the 1st time, every time...even at 75k

Worst Features

Blue leather & Interior?!? Roof racks do not fit well at all. Difficult to get to the oil filter w/out making a mess.
