1996 Ford Contour GL 4dr Sedan

Review

My wife and I have had the Contour for 3 years now and have had no major problems. Oil changes every 3,000 miles, and a tuneup and injector cleaning about a year ago. It has been quite dependable, and my wife often puts on 300 miles a week of highway driving. But now it's getting to the point where it seems like things will start to go wrong. It's losing power, dies occasionally after starting it up first thing in the morning, and the shifts from the automatic transmission are not nearly as smooth as they used to be.

Best Features

Very spacious trunk, solid interior build.

Worst Features

Long-term build quality.
