Everything I Wanted and More

1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

You can't beat the burble this engine produces! Between the intake and the exhaust, this has to be the sweetest sounding stock engine around. With the addition of a SuperChip and a K&N filter, it's almost perfect. It's not the quickest off the line due to it's front drive configuration, but this car isn't about drag racing - it's about driving. It handles like it's on rails and stops on a nickel (not quite a dime!). I couldn't be happier. Especially considering I got it 4 years old with 14k miles on it!

Best Features

Wonderful engine sounds. The rush as the tachometer passes 3500.

Worst Features

Stronger clutch, limited slip differential, different interior color choice.
