1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

I had owned my SVT Contour (1998 coreador red) for nearly 4 years, having bought it used in 1999. Sadly, the car went up in flames about a week ago. In a fire possibly related to leaking power steering fluid, this thing lit up like a roman candle; fortunately no one was hurt. Anyway, with the exception of the above noted issue, these cars are fairly reliable, and of course are blessed with amazing handling.

Favorite Features

Smooth 5 speed, excellent steering feel, stability at high speed.

Suggested Improvements

Major repairs: both front wheel bearings, o2 sensors, cat converter (recall), new gas tank (recall).
