Excellent Engine -- Poor Suspension

Vehicle

1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan

Review

The 4-cylinder in the Contour seems to be excellent -- 114,000 miles and no problems. And tremendous get-up and go for such a small engine on the freeway. However, the suspension and body construction problems (can no longer open gas cover from driver's seat) are troublesome. And no one seems to be able to correct them.

Favorite Features

Cruises well at 80 mph on the highway with no work at all. Great for long trips.

Suggested Improvements

Improve gas tank mounting. Correct interior electrical problems. Improve suspension.
