I am the original owner and have put
110,000 miles on a 1995 GL 4-cylendar 5-
speed manual Contour. I have only done
routine maintenance on it with the
exception of a blasted electrical
problem with the cooling fan that was
recalled and has been repaired several
times -- but at Ford's expense! There
have been no other problems with the
car. I think I get more miles per
dollar spent with this car than any car
I kmnow of. And as a bonus, its peppy
and fun to drive (although I am told
the version with the automatic
transmission is sluggish).
Fun to drive. No mechanical problems
with routine maintenance.
