I am very pleased with my Contour.
Going on 10 years now, I am rounding
100K and the car continues to run
great. Now, mostly my wife uses it as
a weekend car to run errands; take

it over again.
Fun to drive.

coming up. Air vents for AC are
cracking due to cheap plastic. Little
to no leg room in the back.
