1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car new in 1998 and still can't find anything new I like better. It is the best shifting car I've ever driven. The engine and exhaust make noises under throttle that have you smiling ear to ear.I will mention the car's one flaw, the differential is not strong enough to take the horsepower and torque. I had to replace mine and I went with an aftermarket torsion type differential and the car is even more fun to drive. I recommend this as a fun and practical everyday car. There is nothing like just taking it for a good drive on a twisty road.

Favorite Features

Agressive exterior styling, shift feel, low end torque, and the melodious noises.

Suggested Improvements

Ford should have recalled the differential. Upgrade that and you'll have a great car.
