My Contour hit 200,000 miles last night! I've got the V6 5-speed. Though I had problems with it early on--water pumps, numerous recalls and that darn engine light that won't go off--it's been great for the last 120,000 miles. I love the way it handles and it still has plenty of power. I'm curious to see how long it will last!
My favorite feature is its stability. I don't have to slow down when taking bends in the road. It's almost as much fun as my motorcycle.
Getting in and out of the back seat is wicked, but I don't have many passengers.
