1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

I fell in love with this model when I worked at a Ford dealership in 1998. I am a family man and could not justify the price of a new one so I put it out of my mind. Last year I saw a nice one on E-bay and placed a bid for $2700. Not only was that the set minimum but 30 minutes later I was the proud owner! I drove 150 miles to pick it up and fell in love all over again! The growl of the engine, the smooth shifting, the elegant interior and the white face gauges. I had it tuned up this year...ouch! It has been problem free and the most fun car I have ever owned. Now I am practical (a 4 door) and cool (so my kids say). When you start this baby and she growls at you, she makes you growl back.

Favorite Features

The engine, white faced gauges, mesh front grille and euro-looking headlamps.

Suggested Improvements

The trunk takes in water in heavy rain so I would fix that.
