1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan

Review

I have owned this car for four years now and it continues to find new ways to put a big smile on my face! The great thing is I went from a single guy to a married-with-two-kids guy in the interim and I didn't have to give up the sports car! There's nothing like smoking 3-Series BMW's with your "lowly" Ford with your two-year old daughter screaming "wheeee" in the back. Great car, great drive, yeah the stereo was a pain but a quick aftermarket fix put an end to that.

Best Features

Engine (oh that wonderful SVT growl!), Transmission (never missed a shift yet), Engine, Interior colour (the Blue grows on you), Brakes, Engine, Price, did I mention the Engine?

Worst Features

If Ford ever pulls its finger out and bring the Mondeo back to NA... 17" Tires, Climate Control, Get rid of the swing arms on the trunk. A slightly larger rear seat. More power is a given.
