Fun to Drive, Torture to own

Vehicle1999 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan
ReviewMy '99 Contour was in the shop constantly. Partly because parts on it kept breaking, and partly because the Ford service guys were incompetent and wouldn't fix the problem that the car was brought in for but would manage to break something else. For example, I had a warped dash (fixed under warranty) but the one they replaced my tan dash with was a dark brown one. And then they wouldn't replace it with the right color. I also had a constant, strong pull to the left, cd player never worked, rear doors squeaked constantly, driver seat became a rocking chair after 2 months, clutch plate shattered after only 38,000 miles and more.
Best FeaturesHandling. Peppy engine.
Worst FeaturesFord needs to either overhaul it or put the car out of its misery. They chose the latter.
