This has beren a great vehicle! The
only major repairs have bee replacing
the timing belt at 90,000 miles and
the front wheel bearings at 102,000
miles. The car holds the road great
and still has good acceleration. It
has been paid off for a few years now
and is still running fine.

Designers sculpt and adjust interior seating to make more leg- and headroom in the backseat. Five new colors are available and improvements to shift effort on manual transmission models make the 1996 Contour more competitive.
