Vehicle
1995 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan
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?
