Review

This was the first car I have ever purchased and has been a nightmare from day one! I have owned the car for a year and 3 months and I have put around $2000 into it and I am currently battling with a possible wiring problems that I can't seem to get pinpointed! It has been a huge disappontment to own and I am hoping to get rid of it as soon as I can get it running for longer than 10 minutes!!! These cars are junk and have NO resale value! Stay away!

Review

This car is a decent car to drive, especially for the money paid, but it's a disaster on wheels. The engine revs itself at idle, and I can't start it without keeping my foot on the gas or it stalls. The brake pedal will only depress half-way (new pads and rotors turned 6 mo. ago). This car also jerks and shakes when in drive gear below speeds of 20 MPH, causing me to hit a car in front of me while I was parallel parking. I like Fords, but this car seems to be poorly designed (ie. cupholder, lack of rear legroom, locking gas cap won't open etc).


Favorite Features

sporty handling and plenty of power for a midsize family sedan, amazingly cheap (i know why now).


Suggested Improvements

High insurance rates, same cost to insure my 2000 Explorer 4x4 as this 95 contour, what's up with that? Quality control, the japanese and german auto makers know how, why can't the US keep up?

Review

I bought this for 6 mo and I dun find any fun on owning this car. It had many problems car. I had used 1600 to fix all the problems, tire rods, brakes, radiator, water pump, and electrical wires on this car. I won't recommand this car to any friends of mine.


Suggested Improvements

Never use plastic in engine please. Otherwise, it's easy to find on the road dead.

Review

I have a '95 Contour with over 160,000 miles on. No major repairs done whatsoever. I push that thing to its limits every single day, and it doesn't seem to mind at all. I've been in two accidents, both of which where the other vehicle was badly damaged, while my Contour has minor chipped paint and scatches. I ran over a median, popped two tires, bent two rims, but not a single other problem. The car didn't even need a wheel alignment. It's amazing what my Contour has put up with. I think my next car will be an SVT Contour.

Review

I brought my Ford Contour in 1999 and still have it in 2002. I have only had one minor problem with it and that occured when the "Check Engine" light came on. For the entire four years, I only paid 400$ in repairs for this car. It is still in excellent condition and remains a great reliable vehicle. I recommend this car to anyone out there. Good luck in your search!


Favorite Features

Cup holder, fabric on the doors, head rests, size of the truck.


Suggested Improvements

Improvments may remain within computer of the car. After 95,000 miles the "Check Engine" light comes on and the computer of the car needs a minor tune-up.
