My wife and I bought our 96 contour
with 45k and drove it to 98k in 2
years. The car was dependable but
seemed to have a ghost, blinker blinked
fast occasionally, interior lights
sometimes worked, died if went in
reverse and braked quickly sometimes,
the front wheel popped when turning all
the way a direction, rear made a
rubbing noise over bumps, med/hi worked
on blower if turned slowly. Shifter
coming out of drive into park was
rough. No major problems just routine
Very dependable put a lot of highway
miles on this car.
Electrical system, smoother shift from
drive to park.
