Do Not Buy a First Generation Vehicle
By Joe Blow on

Vehicle

1995 Ford Contour LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I dont care if its Yugo or Lexus, NEVER buy a first generation vehicle (like I did). The engineers need time to improve the thing with a few design mods. I have had my car for 9 years and put 135,000 miles on it. Fun as hell to drive, but frequent warranty failures put me on first name basis with service department. Out of Warranty repairs minor, but agree the powertrain is a total pain to work on - even a simple thing takes patience due to extremely dense fit of motor in engine compartment!

Favorite Features

Handling, and awesome sound/power of the V-6 at 6700 rpm redline. I still look forward to driving it after 9 years as I did the first day I bought it. Fun as hell to drive, folks.

Suggested Improvements

Tell the GAS TANK ENGINEERING TEAM to get their act together and design a system that allows one to actually get a full tank of gas without cussing!
