A nightmare brought to life!
By EJA on
1995 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan
What would possess a manufacturer to
produce such a lousy car???
THE DOWN SIDES: No tilt steering
(WHY?); cup holders that only
accomodate a 12oz can of pop or a small
size coffee; manual seat slide lever is
placed next to the center console,
while the seat tilt lever is on the
door side (very difficult to adjust
without being seated); Gas compartment
that cannot be opened from the outside,
and seldom from the release lever on
the inside (release latch sticks,
leaving no way to fill your tank)
ON THE UP SIDE: Has a peppy 2.5l DOHC
engine (VERY responsive); has 78,000
miles now, and we are in the process of
2.5l DOHC engine
Everything about this car needs
improving, except the engine.
