1995 Ford Contour SE 4dr Sedan

Review

WHEN it runs, it's great. V6 with 5 speed manual is responsive and fun. The ride is nice, seats are comfy, and it holds cruise speed in the mountains. But it is simply unreliable. In the past 5 months, it has broken down 5 times. Starting at 36K miles (when we should have seen "the signs" and dumped it), countless trips to the shop include catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, mass air flow sensor, wiring harness, EGR something-or-another, etc. The part is NEVER in stock at my Ford dealership, adding to the inconvenience. I inherited this car when I married my husband. My husband is great, but the car is a lemon.

Best Features

Peppy engine, fun five speed, moon roof.

Worst Features

Overall reliability and quality parts that aren't farmed out to some shoddy outside manufacturer. Cup holder that actually holds a cup without the passenger's seat getting in the way.
