Great Car When it's Not at the Mechanic
By Alejandro on
1995 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan
Car at the dealer for repairs six times
in the first two years I owned it: EGR
valves (?), catalytic converter, oxygen
sensors, electrical system issues, and
other stuff I have forgotten. Last 5
years: electrical system shorted out
twice; check engine light on all the
time; right rear suspension link broke,
speedometer/odometer stopped working.
All that being said I LOVE this car.
The engine is powerful and fuel-
efficient, the car is loaded with
options and a joy to drive. Handling
(before suspension problem) was
incredible - like a European
Engine, transmission, seats, moonroof.
Reliability, reliability, reliability,
and the stereo.
